Ape Entertainment will produce a series of educational print and digital comics featuring the characters of “Sesame Street,” after signing an agreement with Sesame Workshop.

The comics, which are geared for young readers, will be in full color and size and available in stores this fall. The digital comic will be available in Apple’s App Store and compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.

"We are excited about our new relationship with Sesame Workshop to bring the Sesame Street characters to comics, which is a dream come true for all of us here at Ape,” says Brent E. Erwin, chief operating officer, Ape Entertainment. “Elmo, Big Bird, Cookie Monster, Grover and the whole ‘Sesame Street’ gang have always been a part of our lives, now we feel like a part of their family, and that’s a great feeling."

 “We look forward to collaborating with Ape Entertainment to create a series of ‘Sesame Street’ comic books, for all ages,” says Jennifer A. Perry, vice president, worldwide publishing, Sesame Workshop. “The Sesame Street Muppets and comic books go together like Cookie Monster and snickerdoodles, so we can’t wait for ‘Sesame Street’ fans to have the chance to learn and laugh in the unique way comics draw readers in and keep them turning the page.”
