NYC, NY, USA The publishing industry was given fresh hope of recovery today when Martin Handford, British creator of the wildly popular "Where's Waldo?" series of children's books announced the release of a new series of books titles "Where's Wacko?" to capitalize on the recent death and nonburial of the King of Pop, Michael Jackson.
The books consist of a series of complex full-page illustrated pictures of hundreds of tiny people doing various things. The purpose is to find a character called Wacko among the group, which can be difficult as he is always well hidden. Wacko dresses in a red leather jacket and one white glove, carries an umbrella, and wears various masks. Readers are also invited to find lost items, including the golden casket, prescription drugs, the official cause of death, the Jackson children and the missing biological parents.
The series of books, like the original, is expected to be translated in to many different languages, with a different Jackson nickname assigned to each foreign country.
Katherine Jackson is said to be considering filing a lawsuit to seek an unspecified percentage of the profits from the books.
