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!

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!

In January, a handful of Once Upon a Time Machine creators –  Andrew Carl (Editor; writer of “John Henry”), Chris Stevens (Producer; writer of “The Boy Who Drew Cats”), Josh O’Neill (Creative Advisor; writer of “Bombus and Vespula”), James Comey (creator of “Kid Yimage and the Really Big Hole”), Rob Woods (creator of “The Venusian Shepherd Boy Who Cried Space Wolf”), and Dave Proch (artist of “A.L.I.C.E.”) – were honored to be this year’s guests of the annual Charles Bernheimer Symposium at the University of Pennsylvania’s Kelly Writers House. You can listen to a recording of our talk here, but you’ll be missing out on our visual aids and physical comedy.

If you want to see some of the gang in person, though, we have some more great events coming up in March!

Andrew, Chris, Josh, Charles Fetherolf (creator of “The Crossing”), and Jason Rodriguez (writer of “The Stars Are Not Wanted Now”) will be dropping by William Paterson University to chat with some art students about making comics. A students-only event…but if you’re in the area, feel free to stalk and ambush us as we find dinner thereabouts.

Friday-Sunday, March 22-24: Rochester, Minnesota
Fabletown and Beyond – Andrew, Chris, and Josh will be attending Bill Willingham’s first annual convention “entirely designed to discuss, promote and celebrate comic books that fall within the Mythic Fiction realm.” We’ll be alongside such greats as Mark Buckingham (Fables), Kurt Busiek (Arrowsmith), Mike Carey (The Unwritten), Gene Ha (Top 10), Adam Hughes (Fairest), Mike Oeming (Mice Templar). [Facebook]

Saturday, March 30: Asbury Park, New Jersey
