Preview the Book

It’s about time!

We finally added a hefty preview of the book to our website. For a while there, Facebook was the only place where you’d find a wide range of art from the Once Upon a Time Machine. But now you’ve got it here, too! So if you haven’t already picked up the book, go ahead and check out the “Preview!” page on our site to see what you’re in for.

You can also read the full first story from Time Machine at Dark Horse’s website.

Between con season, Locust Moon’s recent projects, and the two of those things combined, we haven’t been as good with online updates as we’d like. But you’ll be hearing more of us, I guarantee it!

The Harveys!

ouatm harvey

The nominations for the 2013 Harvey Awards were announced recently, and we were honored and humbled to find our book, Once Upon a Time Machine, nominated in the category of Best Anthology. We have to thank everyone who has supported us in buying the book, reading it, spreading the word and, of course, nominating it. For many of us involved, Time Machine was our first published work – and it took a lot of time, sweat, learning, and love to put it out into the world. We have been consistently overjoyed with the response the book has gotten, and this nomination is a big deal and great validation for what we tried and continue trying to do in comics.

If you’re a fellow comics creator, you can vote for what you found to be the best comics of the last year in the final ballot here: http://www.harveyawards.org/2013-final-ballot/

“The Harvey Awards are one of the comic book industry’s oldest and most respected awards. The Harveys recognize outstanding achievements in over 20 categories, ranging from Best Artist to the Jack Kirby Hall of Fame. They are the only industry awards both nominated by and selected by the full body of comic book professionals.”

From everyone at Locust Moon and Once Upon a Time Machine, thank you again for all your love and support!

Haverford Township Free Library Comic Con

Earlier in July, we visited the Haverford Township Free Library for their first-ever Comic Con. It was a small affair, held just 20 minutes away from the Locust Moon Comics retail store/home-base. And it was loads of fun. We had a blast talking to lots of kids and their parents, sketching, participating in panels, and even helping to judge a great kids’ art contest.

Andrew Carl (Editor; Writer, “John Henry”), Chris Stevens (Producer; Writer, “The Boy Who Drew Cats”), David Tanh (Writer, “The Tea Garden Park Soapbox Grand Prix”), Dave Proch (Artist, “A.L.I.C.E.”), Rob Woods (“The Venusian Shepherd Boy Who Cried Space Wolf”), and Jimmy Comey (“Kid Yimage and the Really Big Hole”) all showed up for the festivities. Dave, Rob, and Jimmy spent nearly all day with pens in hand and noses to paper — they never stopped drawing!

The library had their own advance copy of Paul Pope’s Battling Boy on-hand, which we all took turns flipping through and drooling over. Dave was inspired to recreate some of the magic, just for kicks:

Jimmy joined a Superhero Sketch Showdown with Mike Townsend and the great Bob McLeod.

Andrew and Chris sat on a panel with Matt Phelan and Dawn Griffin to discuss the process of of “Creators Creating” — from idea to publication and everything in between.

Dave and Rob lead a “Let’s Draw!” workshop for the kids, with the help of Matt Phelan and Bob McLeod. And we’ve got video!

We hope the Haverford Library Comic Con returns next year – because we’ll be there!

TCAF & Back

It may be a bit late, but Josh O’Neill over at the main Locust Moon blog wrote up a fun recap of our time in the Great White North for the wonderful Toronto Comic Arts Festival.

The recap’s probably…50% about the food.

I don’t see a problem with that.
