May’s Events: VanCAF & Amalgam

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!

See you in Baltimore!

Visio-2013 Floor Plan - Final.vsdWe’re here in Baltimore now for our first Baltimore Comic-Con! We’ve only heard great things about this show, and it looks like it’s going to be a great weekend.

So this Saturday and Sunday, come find us (Andrew, Chris, and Josh) at Table A152 in Artist Alley, at the Baltimore Convention Center.

We’ll have our usual set of Once Upon a Time Machine goodies, along with the latest addition to the Locust Moon Press catalog, Quarter Moon #1. We’ll also be carrying around a one-of-a-kind, top-secret portfolio of select finished art for our upcoming Little Nemo: Dream Another Dream anthology (printed at the book’s final printing size, 16″ x 21″!) – ask nicely, and we might let you take a peek!

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.

Back from Fabletown and the Beach

FABLETOWN AND BEYOND

Over on the Locust Moon blog, Chris Stevens provided a wonderful reaction piece to our unforgettable time in Fabletown (née Rochester), Minnesota. You really ought to read it.

The journey truly started on Tuesday night, three days before Fabletown and Beyond would be underway. Josh O’Neill in Philly and I in New York, we talked on the phone like protective parents of our partner Chris. “Make sure he has all his chargers. See if Rob can tie up that banner stand so it won’t give him too much trouble.” “I feel like I should pack him a lunch in the morning.” “Fill a bag with food that’ll stay good for a few days, in case he gets hungry on the last leg.” And so on. If you haven’t read his recap yet, you might not realize that the next morning, Chris would be boarding a train from Philadelphia to Winona, Minnesota. That spelled a 30+ hour trip each way. Josh and I had it easy. We got to fly.

Two things struck me within hours (really, the first hour) of my arrival in Fabletown, MN: how fascinating the indoor (post-apocalypse-ready) mini-metropolis of Rochester was, and how aggressively nice all of the people there were. But it wasn’t just the locals who treated us well. Something about Fabletown seemed to bring out the best in folks, and the good vibes permeated every nook and cranny of those subways and skyways and buildings that bled and fed into each other from block to block. Every last person we dealt with was kind and helpful – especially our international team of convention organizers, including Bill Willingham, Stacy Sinner, Mike Sinner, Stephanie Cooke, Brad Thomte, and all of those awesome volunteers.

Chris covered the key events and joys of the weekend pretty wonderfully, but I thought I should share some of personal favorite photos from the weekend here, as well.

Here’s our favorite character from the weekend…P1000150 Continue reading

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 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!
