There's a hero in all of us

This week's release of Super Villain Island reminded us of a comic series that we published in this humble space over four years ago to promote Super Power Island. Four years is a long time, and we realized that many of you probably never had a chance to read it. So without further ado, we're happy to re-publish Super Hot Dog Boy!

Click an image to enlarge it.

To discover the hero in you, play Super Villain Island, available this Thursday on Poptropica!

"Arr" you hungry for a good time?

We have two pieces of news today that are so exciting that I don't know which one to share first. Let's see... eenie, meanie, miney, moe... All right, got it.

Poptropica is back at Applebee's! From now until November 10, when your family eats at a participating Applebee's restaurant, you'll get a new Poptropica activity book that will keep you entertained even when the adults start talking about boring stuff. Plus, each menu has a special code that you can enter to get an Applebee's-themed costume and power for your Poptropican!

(Not sure how to redeem a code for your Poptropican? Find out here.)

The second bit of important news: Today is International Talk Like a Pirate Day! Do your old pal Captain Crawfish a favor and spend the rest of the day rolling your Rs and calling for grog.

Off ye go, mateys!

Happy Roald Dahl day!

Today is Roald Dahl Day -- the birthday of one of the greatest storytellers of all time! Roald Dahl was the man behind classic stories like James and the Giant Peach, Matilda, The BFG, and a whole lot more, including our favorite, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

In fact, we love Charlie and the Chocolate Factory so much that we've decided to make a whole Island out of it! Consider this our Roald Dahl Day gift to you.

We'll have a lot more to tell you about our latest and greatest project in the weeks to come!
