Toronto, Canada - October 23, 2012 - Toronto, Canada, October 2, 2012 - Radical Sheep Productions has optioned the rights to the hilarious graphic novel series Fangbone! Third-Grade Barbarian, written and illustrated by New York Times best selling author Michael Rex.

Fangbone is a nine-year-old barbarian warrior from Skullbania who has landed in Eastwood Elementary's third grade class to save his native land from the vilest villain, Venomous Drool.

Radical Sheep will develop the graphic novels into an animated series for 6-11 year olds.
