Stan Lee’s Kids Universe (SLKU), the family friendly multiplatform imprint from comic icon Stan Lee’s POW! Entertainment and 1821 Comics is challenging gamers across the country to defeat evil ninja weasels and protect Peludo City by unleashing HERO PETZ, a fun new game and multiplatform graphic novel. Both properties are being released this week at WonderCon. The game, available on iOS, will be available for free download this week only during WonderCon and can be downloaded by visiting here.
HERO PETZ the graphic novel book is published in association with Viper Comics and written by Dale Mettam (Inspector Gadget, Johnny Test) with art and cover by Juan Fleites and tells the story of the evil Itachi Clan who have a grip on Peludo City. Hero Petz, a group of brave heroes and a crazy monkey, stand by ready to defend the innocent and fight for justice. This group consists of El Conejito the Rabbit, Wonder Squirrel, Steel Shell the Turtle, Sensei Penguin-San, Kapitan Brüllaffe the Monkey, and Golden Hamster.

HERO PETZ the game is based on the same multiplatform book from SLKU and Viper
Comics, which is also available starting today for purchase in stores and on Amazon, iTunes, Kindle, Kobo and on stanleeskidsuniverse.com.
Commented 1821 Comics CEO and co-founder Terry Dougas: “When we launched our Stan Lee’s Kids Universe label in February, Stan Lee and I announced that we’d be releasing a slate of family friendly properties, and HERO PETZ falls exactly in line with this vision.
In celebration of WonderCon, we invite fans from everywhere this week to download the game for free and enjoy the HERO PETZ universe, a very fun brand for everyone.”
The HERO PETZ game and graphic novel come on the heels of SLKU’s launch last month of its colorful children’s book MONSTERS VS. KITTENS by Dani Jones, along with GOOBEEZ: PIRATE ADVENTURE, a game for the IOS platform (iTunes).
