This Friday, OUATM editor & writer Andrew Carl will join Folio Books’ Bookworms Middle Reader Book Club in eating pizza, reading comics, and talking about crafting exciting new stories from the ones we all know and love. Andrew will discuss some of those unique blends of old and new found in Once Upon a Time Machine: Greek Gods & Legends, and maybe put together a few more remixes with the help of the Bookworms.
RSVP required here!
The Bookworms club (and pizza party!) for readers 8-12 gathers the third Friday of every month. There’s a $5 deposit to RSVP. If the child attends, the $5 will come back to them in the form of a store gift certificate. If they’re not able to attend or RSVP in advance, the money will be donated to Children’s Book Project, a foundation that builds literacy by providing free books to children.

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!
