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!

Recently, Once Upon a Time Machine editor Andrew Carl and producer Chris Stevens (virtually) sat down with the folks at Diamond Bookshelf for a little interview.
We discussed the origins of the book, the creative vision that drove it, and our theories as to what makes fairy tales so enduringly popular and beloved.
Even better, Diamond Bookshelf took the opportunity to share a few never-before-seen finished pages from the book.
Look out for pages from:
Pinocchio, or “The Stars Are Not Wanted Now” by Jason Rodriguez, Scott White, and Jason Arthur
“The Boy Who Drew Cats” by Chris Stevens, Khoi Pham, Jose Villarrubia, and Todd Klein
“The Shepherd and the Weaver Girl” by Saajan Patel, James Giar, Mandy Moore, and Rafer Roberts
Hansel and Gretel, or “Bombus and Vespula” by Josh O’Neill, Senk Chhour, Michelle Madsen and John Workman
And of course, Farel Dalrymple’s cover (it never gets old).
Head over to Diamond Bookshelf’s site to check the interview and pages out…
And let us know what you think, right here or on Facebook!
Robot 6 @ Comic Book Resources is definitely excited about Once Upon a Time Machine!
First they picked it as one of the books to look forward to in this month’s Previews. Chris Arrant kindly singled the book out:
Once Upon a Time Machine by Various (Dark Horse) – I love twisted takes on classic stories, and this looks to be just that – fairy tales refashioned for different times. Plus, the creator list seems inspired, with the likes of Ryan Ottley, Brandon Graham, and even mainstream artists like Khoi Pham.
We hope — and think — the book will live up to those expectations!
And now this week, Michael May picked up on a great blog post by Brandon Graham, in order to share with all the CBR readers Farel Dalrymple‘s full wraparound cover for the book and Brandon & Marian Churchland‘s beautiful Little Mermaid collaboration!
Enjoy that astounding cover here — and head on over to the CBR post or Brandon’s site to find the pinup!
