Signing & Talk: August 4 in Washington, DC

On August 4, a sure-to-be-balmy Saturday afternoon in Washington, DC, a few Once Upon a Time Machine creators will be making an appearance at Fantom Comics.

Facebook event page: facebook.com/events/602577953445209/

Andrew Carl, DC native and Eisner & Harvey Award-winning editor/writer, is heading home to celebrate the creation and release of Once Upon a Time Machine Volume 2: Greek Gods & Legends. Artists Bizhan Khodabandeh & Alice Meichi Li will join Andrew for a signing and spirited discussion on creating the new book, adapting mythology in fresh ways, and making comics that stand out.

Once Upon a Time Machine is a Harvey-nominated anthology series (from the editors of Little Nemo: Dream Another Dream) that sees myths and fables re-imagined as science fiction comics. The newly released 2nd volume sets its sights on the Greek pantheon: Heracles, Zeus, Icarus, Athena…the gang’s all there. Creators like Ron Wimberly, Paul Pope, Andrea Tsurumi, and Toby Cypress mold new, thoughtful, and fun stories exploring the future, using some of the oldest storytelling clay we have. You can preview the book here.

Alice Meichi Li provided beautiful illustrations of Aphrodite (above) to OUATM Vol. 2 and Chang’e to Vol. 1. She is an illustrator who grew up in Yes-Actually-Detroit and currently lives in Jamaica, Queens. Her art has appeared on the pages of books by Oni Press, Archie Comics, Dark Horse, and Image Comics; and has been exhibited at the Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art, Museum of Chinese in America, Gallery Nucleus, Gallery 1988 and others.

Bizhan Khodabandeh crafted Pygmalion for OUATM Vol. 2 with writer Jason Rodriguez (of District Comics fame). He moves freely across the professional boundaries as designer, illustrator, artist, and activist. He has received numerous international and national awards for his work, including a silver medal from the Society of Illustrators for his comic work. Currently Khodabandeh teaches full-time at VCU’s Robertson School of Media & Culture and freelances under the name Mended Arrow.

Andrew Carl edited both volumes of OUATM, and wrote some stories, too: IcarusDaphne, and Heracles for Vol. 2, and John Henry for Vol. 1. As a kid he learned what comics were and could be in DC’s Georgetown. Andrew co-founded Locust Moon Press, where he worked with many of his heroes as editor of Little Nemo: Dream Another Dream, an audacious anthology that earned multiple Eisners and a Harvey and an invitation to speak at the Library of Congress. He now lives in San Francisco and is developing a fantasy series about anxiety, depression, dictators, and cats.
