Hi! I ‘m Purple and I’m Nine…

We wrote our own comic book. Three of them, actually. We thought it was a lot more interesting to solve real problems than to read about princesses and fashion, so we wrote about that. We thought parents would like it better, too.

In the pilot video by Gangly Sister, shown below, we found out that lots of kids want to see stories about how to solve real problems like helping a friend stay awake in class, stopping bullies, and helping people who have no running water or electricity. You can get the comic now if you or your kids want to read comics where real kids solve real problems with real technology, science and inventions. I mean, we don’t really solve all the problems but we have a good time. .

Purple loves technology and Nine wants to save the world, so together we set out to solve the world’s problems using new inventions. But first, they need to fix a few things around the house. And at school… Subscribe to follow their adventures!

Kids media influences the future.

We want our girls respected for their smarts and strength, but we bombard them with images of women valued for their sweetness or sensuality. Did you know that in children’s programming, fewer than 25% of the characters are female? We bet you did know that most of those characters are either props or tokens in male-dominated media, or driven mainly by their desire to get a boy to fall in love with them.

If we want media that reflects who we are, who we want to be, and who we want our girls to be, we ladies are just going to have to do it ourselves.

Introducing Purple and Nine, the fun, smart and empowering comic book for girls.  No perfect body, wand, or sparkles required.

You can see the pilot video here, and we just released a series of 3 digital comics you can download to your phone, computer or tablet. You’ll hear about The Adventures of Pyjama Boy, The Lament of Leslie Loser, and The Princess and the Pea.. and the Corn.. and the Whole Farm Actually.  Subscribe to make sure you never miss and issue or episode!

We can’t succeed without you. We need you to watch, spread the word, and buy the comic books.
