Soon to be an animated show on HBO Max!Squish #1: Super AmoebaIt’s SQUISH—a graphic novel series, now adapted for audio, about a comic book-loving, twinkie-eating grade school AMOEBA trying to find his place in the world (or at least trying to make it through a school day). Inspired by his favorite comic book hero, SUPER AMOEBA!, Squish has to navigate school (bullies! detention! Principal Planaria!), family (dad: Hates to wear a tie. Secretly listens to heavy metal in the car), and friends (Peggy-rainbows! happy all the time! and Pod . . . who’s . . . well, you just have to meet him). Can Squish save the world—and his friends—from the forces of evil lurking in the hallways? Find out in Squish: Super Amoeba—saving the world, one cell at a time!Squish #2: Brave New PondHe’s baa-ack! It’s a brand new school year for everyone’s favorite AMOEBA! Will Squish finally get to sit with the cool kids at lunch? Will Pod stop the giant asteroid from destroying the world? Will the LEECHES be the end of Super Amoeba? And what makes cafeteria nachos so delicious anyway? Find out the answers to these questions and more in Squish’s second electrifying, fast-paced adventure, Squish #2: Brave New Pond—saving the world, one cell at a time!Squish #3: The Power of the ParasiteSchool’s out! Everyone’s favorite amoeba is headed to summer camp! But instead of SUPER AWESOME FUN, Squish’s summer is turning out to be SUPER AWESOME TERRIFYING! For one thing, Squish can’t swim. And to make matters worse, his new camp friend is a Hydra (scientific fact: A hydra’s tentacles can paralyze you!). Will Squish sink or will he swim this summer? (And what’s up with Pod and black holes anyways??) Find out the answers to these questions and more in the super spectacular adventure, Squish #3: The Power of the Parasite. Summer reading has never been so slimey!Squish #4: Captain DisasterIt’s soccer season! But the Waterfleas (Hey, it could be worse—Okay, maybe it couldn’t.) are getting pummelled game after game. Squish knows winning isn’t everything, but it’s something right? Can Squish turn the losing streak around when he becomes team captain? Will Pod figure out how to harness the power of lightning? And how can amoebas play soccer when they don’t have any feet? Find out in the electrifyingly funny Squish #4: Captain Disaster—saving the world, one cell at a time!
