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!

Asbury Park Comicon 2013

PS. We’re still getting around to some kind of wrap-up/write-up of the unforgettable, inaugural Fabletown and Beyond convention last week. It’s a hard experience to put into words, so please forgive how long it’s taking! But know this: next year, should the con return in one form or another, you do not want to miss it.
