To celebrate the one-year anniversary of Mandrill, MailChimp’s email infrastructure service, we created a webcomic about Freddie throwing a surprise birthday party for his best friend Mannie. The original one-shot turned into a series, with the two buddies trying to solve a mystery and track down a dastardly villain…

We wrote, illustrated and animated the comic, and released an issue each month.
Everyone had so much fun that we decided to make a printed version.
We designed and produced a boxed set that included a book of the original series, the villain’s minion guidebook, a bonus one-shot story about Freddie and Mannie’s yard sale, stickers and a postcard.
MailChimp sent the sets out as gifts during the 2013 holiday season.
