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!

Meanwhile, the book’s just starting to get some advance reviews. The first one’s short, but very sweet!
On her review blog, Carrie Griffin says: “This was everything for my Greek Mythology loving heart. I loved how much these short comics felt like the original myths but also the changes to them. This was a great fresh take on each of the tales used and is one of a kind. Also, the different styles made each tale stand out on their own. I recommend this to anyone who loves great comics and/or Greek Mythology.”
