Do we have to tell you why girls are dieting and wearing high heels at age 8? If we want children to value science and technology, we have to show them role models of girls who are valued for their inventiveness, persistence and character. We have to show them not only that they can do science, but that there's a great reason to -- because we all know the truth. Problems such as disease, hunger, and lost car keys will all be resolved through technology -- not through the good guy beating up the bad guy.
If you are a parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle or friend and you and want great content for your kids, get the comic book now. Did we mention it's funny? It is a comic book. Your kids will laugh (and you might too).
Purple and Nine was created by a group of parents who were high-tech entrepreneurs and decided to create the kind of entertainment we wish we had for our girls.
By buying a comic book, you are showing Big Media that people will pay for wholesome entertainment with no violence, no boyfriends, no stereotypes, and no celebrity. You'll allow us to expand to making apps and video so kids all over the planet can see they can express all aspects of their personality, and that they can solve both their own problems and those of their communities through ingenuity and innovation.
Who knows? If Purple and Nine becomes the Next Big Thing, maybe media companies will start producing even more great characters for our young people!
