Preview The Super Newts Comics here!
The Super Newts were created by AJ Moore in the fall of 1996. They began as fill-in/short comics to a much larger comic about amphibians called Amphibiland, staring two frogs. The two frogs went on many looney adventures in Amphibiland, but you will meet them later. The stories were written on amphibians because they are fascinating with their life cycle and unique characteristics. As he researched them further and learned more about amphibians, he let his imagination run wild. The Super Newts have now developed into an elaborate storyline with many characters, comedy, and action.
The story takes place in a lush, green, and magical area of the world called Amphibiland. Amphibiland is home to over 5000 species of amphibians; frogs, toads, salamanders, newts, and caecilians. There’s also many other inhabitants such as insects, crustaceans, and small mammals that call Amphibiland home. The Super Newts are a superhero duo of brother and sister doing their part to save their world from occupational hazards and destruction.

What the heck is a Newt?
Well just in case you were wondering, according to Wikipedia: a newt is an amphibian of the Salamandridae family that does metamorphose through three distinct developmental life stages: aquatic larva, terrestrial juvenile (which is called an eft) and finally an adult. Adult newts have lizard-like bodies and may be either fully aquatic, living permanently in the water or semi-aquatic, living terrestrially but returning to the water each year to breed. Read up on them when you have time, they are pretty Cool and Cute.
