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.

What is Fabletown and Beyond?

Fabletown and Beyond will be a convention entirely designed to discuss, promote and celebrate comic books that fall within the Mythic Fiction realm.

Mythic Fiction comics are Fables and Sandman, The Unwritten, Bone, Kill Shakespeare, Mice Templar, Stuff of Legend, Memorial, Fairest, The Abominable Charles Christopher, Mouse Guard, Hellboy, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Arrowsmith, House of Mystery, Castle Waiting, and dozens more truly wonderful books.

Mythic Fiction is that magic-bound alliance of fairytales, folklore, myth, legend, talking animals and characters from literature, given new life, new challenges to face and new adventures to chronicle.

So who else will be there?

To name a few of the comics heavyweights in attendance: Bill Willingham (naturally), Mark Buckingham, Shelly Bond, Kurt Busiek, Mike Carey, Bryan J. L. Glass, Gene Ha, Adam Hughes, Steve Leialoha, Mike Oeming, David Petersen, Chris Roberson, Matt Sturges, Chrissie Zullo…and a whole bunch more. See a more complete guest list at the convention’s website.

You’ll find us, the Locust Moon Comics crew, in Fabletown’s intimate Artists’ Alley. We’ll be there with books, prints, and stories in tow.

And on Sunday @ 11:00 am, Chris Stevens will be speaking on the Artist Alley panel in the so-called “Boring Panel Room”!

You can also check out Fabletown and Beyond on Facebook.

Hope we see you there!
