Whether you're new to comic books or a longtime fan, you’re going want to get your hands on all four of these limited edition Planet Protector books.  Illustrated by Bernard Chang, a freelance artist and regular contributor at DC® and Marvel Comics®, each of the four stories features our Planet Protectors, Danica, Brandon and Johnny – three extraordinary kids – working together to solve mysteries and save our planet.  This FREE family event takes place on Friday, Sept. 14 from 3-7 p.m. at the Roseville Utility Exploration Center, 1501 Pleasant Grove Blvd., Roseville, CA.    

Issue One: "Ghost House Mystery"
Brandon rounds up the Planet Protectors to help him fend off a ghost living in his house, feeding on electricity and causing havoc – all while nobody’s home.  

Issue Two: “Tale of Cruddy Creek”
When Danica loses her favorite baseball down the storm gutter, she calls upon the Planet Protectors to discover where all of that trash and wastewater goes.

Issue Three: “Wasteland Nightmare”
After narrowly avoiding an avalanche of garbage, Johnny convinces the Planet Protectors to reduce the amount of trash they produce and resources they consume.

Issue Four: “X Marks the Spot”
The Planet Protector’s family guide.  Use this fun and interactive guide to help you navigate the Exploration Center’s exhibit hall.

While you’re here, be sure to check out the Exploration Center’s newest exhibit, the “Planet Protector’s Green House Makeover.”  Step right up to the metal green house and help the Planet Protectors correct problems that affect the efficiency of our homes by using magnets.  Some examples include fixing leaks, replacing wasteful packaging, changing out light bulbs and many more.  Become a Planet Protector instantly when you make some of the changes you learned at the Center in your home.
