A Light in the Darkness

Thanks, O Peg, for the “new shirt” update.

It’s a light in the darkness for Poptropica’s April weekly T-shirt, ComicKidImage:

As promised, Poptropica will be releasing a new T-shirt at their online Zazzle store every week’s Friday during the month of April 2009. In this one we see Poptropica’s logo in gold, and Comic Kid’s shadow standing into the brilliance of a bright light, yet he is also onย the black background of a shirt. The words below his shadow says, “Comic Kid” in gold. The font being used happens to be Anime Ace 2.0 BB, which like the Poptropica speech bubble font (Creative Block BB), is a Blambot font. You can download Anime Ace for free here:

Bigheaded Agents

The title is not quite what you might think it means! Agents should not be ‘bigheaded’, but on April Fools’ Day, everyone was!

Celebrating April Fools’ Day: On Poptropica!
If the PHB didn’t foolย you, maybe Poptropica will, with the help of VladtheViking’s latest YouTube video!

…And that’s a visual summary of what happened on Poptropica for April Fools! Everyone’s head got bigger (players and non-player characters!), the Poptropica logo on the homepage was backwards, and when you loaded the Poptropica page, a bunch of Poptropicans in goofy glasses would come out. The Creators also included a special picture of Dr. Hare with their blog post (aprilfools.png):

Even the evil bunnies have fun! ๐Ÿ˜†
