  2. Will-o'-the-wisp (noun): A natural phenomenon in which a pocket of swamp gas is somehow lit, producing a blue flame that hovers a few feet above the swamp.

    This rare occurrence, part of Southern United States folklore, provided inspiration for the new graphic novel, "An Aurora Grimeon Story: Will O' the Wisp." The story's namesake reflects the setting of the Atchafalaya Swamp in Southern Louisiana and acts as its villain. We sat down with writer Tom Hammock and illustrator Megan Hutchison to find out how the Louisiana locale—and the folklore and traditions that come from this side of the world—helped set the scene for the first in a proposed series about young heroine Aurora Grimeon and her adventures living on the mystical swamp island Ossuary Isle.

    The fact the novel is based on a real-life location and culture is not the only unique quality in "Will O' the Wisp"; the protagonist of the story is a young girl, something Hutchison and Hammock hope will draw young female readers who might feel underrepresented in the world of comics.

    The first two digital issues of "Will O' the Wisp" are currently available on Comixology, and the novel will be officially released on January 22 by Archaia. Visit ossuaryisle.com for more information.

    Inscription on Collier County plaque for the Ochopee Post Office:

    "Ochopee Post Office - Considered to be the smallest post office in the United States, this building was formerly an irrigation pipe shed belonging to the J.T. Gaunt company tomato farm. It was hurriedly pressed into service by the postmaster Sidney Brown after a disastrous night fire in 1953 burned Ochopee's general store and post office. The Present structure has been in continuous use ever since as both a post office and ticket station for Trailways bus lines- and still services residents in a three-county area, including deliveries to Seminole and Miccosukee Indians living in the region. Daily business, often includes requests from tourists and stamp collectors the world over for the famed Ochopee post mark. The property was acquired by the Wooten Family in 1992."
