A real live rock-n-roll band-
becomes a comic sensation!

By Rich Faber & John Gallagher
with Starbridge Media Group

Milkshake is a band on a mission: to create great rock music for kids. Led by singer Lisa Mathews and guitarist Mikel Gehl, whose songs for grown-ups have been featured in movies and prime-time television, and whose indie rock group Love Riot garnered critical praise during its 10-year run, Milkshake has won over preschoolers without compromising songcraft, stagecraft or their authentic rock&roll spirit.

Sky-Dog worked side-by-side with the entire Milkshake band to create character designs, write and draw fun stories, and design a comic book that didn't just further the Milkshake Brand, but is now the template for a proposed kids show starring the band, and featuring Sky-Dog's animated designs throughout!

"Comic Book Night" promotions have contributed to a significant increase in attendance at Major League Baseball games where they have been used.
