This May, we’re continuing to celebrate and spread word of Vol. 2’s release across North America.
The weekend of May 19-20, Andrew Carl (editor; writer of “Icarus”, “Daphne”, & “Heracles”) will be travelling up to Canada for VanCAF: Vancouver Comic Arts Festival. A couple other OUATM creators will be there, too: the incredible Ronald Wimberly (writer/artist, “Theseus and Metrotaurus”) and Farel Dalrymple (cover artist)! Find them all in VanCAF’s “Gym” room (tables M3, H1, & H12).
A week later, Amalgam Comics & Coffeehouse in Philadelphia will host Chris Stevens (editor; writer of “A Heavy Stone for All the Peoples”), Andrea Tsurumi (writer/artist, “Away Mission”), Mike Sgier (writer/artist, “Andromeda”), and renowned science fiction author Michael Swanwick (writer, “The Long Bow”). Rob Woods (writer/artist of Vol. 1’s “The Boy Who Cried Space Wolf”) will also be there to debut a killer new print to go with Vol. 2’s theme: Trojan War 3025. Given that Philly’s the birthplace of the OUATM series and family, expect to see a few more surprise guests show up, as well!

Comic Book Resources has an exclusive preview of some beautiful art from Volume 2. They’re showing off a couple pages each from the epic “Theseus and Metrotaurus” by Ronald Wimberly and “Game Changers” by Ben Kahn (script), Alexandria Huntington (art), and HdE (letters).
Check out CBR’s preview here.
Meanwhile, the book’s just starting to get some advance reviews. The first one’s short, but very sweet!
On her review blog, Carrie Griffin says: “This was everything for my Greek Mythology loving heart. I loved how much these short comics felt like the original myths but also the changes to them. This was a great fresh take on each of the tales used and is one of a kind. Also, the different styles made each tale stand out on their own. I recommend this to anyone who loves great comics and/or Greek Mythology.”
The news is out! And this future ain’t too far away. Once Upon a Time Machine vol. 2: Greek Gods & Legends is in stores on April 11, 2018!
Make sure your local comic and book purveyors order it with the info below…

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 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!
