The PopCult Toybox

flash-thunder_package1Jim Murphy, the co-creator of the INVICTA Challenge, talks to PopCult about just exactly what the INVICTA Challenge is and what the future holds for this really cool combination toy/graphic novel/game.

We included the INVICTA Challenge in last year’s PopCult Gift Guide. The first in the series was Flash and Thunder, which brought to life the true story of a Native American soldier during D-Day. Future installments will cover Harriet Tubman, Teddy Roosevelt, the war in Afghanistan, the Tuskeegee Airmen, and the Space Program.

The terrific thing about the INVICTA Challenge is that it makes learning history fun and relateable for kids. It’s great that it’s educational but still loads of fun as a toy and game.
