Hey all! Fellow Fraggle Rock writer Adrianne Ambrose and I will be having a signing this Saturday! Here’s the skinny:
Saturday, May 29th 2010
12pm – 3pm
Flying Colors Comics
2980 Treat Blvd
(at Oak Grove Road), Concord, CA 94518
If you can make it, I’d love to see you there! They should have plenty of copies of issue #2, and I’m hoping it’ll be a fun time. Remember, issue #2 hits the stands this Wednesday!
Fraggle Rock #2, the issue with my story in it, will be released on Wednesday, May 26! I may be doing some local signings — I’ll post details once I know more.
I’m going to be at a signing! I’ll be at the Archaia booth (#813) at Wondercon from 2-3:30 on Saturday. Please stop on by!
I can finally talk about this! The Jim Henson Company and Archaia Press have teamed up to create a Fraggle Rock comic book series. I was invited to pitch for it, and I’ve written the lead story for the second issue of the series.
I can’t really express how proud I am of this story, and how grateful I am to have had the chance to participate in a project like this. It means so much to have someone like Brian Henson say he thought my story was great. It was also a wonderful opportunity to work with my original Faerie Path editor, Tim Beedle, and to reconnect with characters I loved as a child. I watched something like 15 hours of Fraggle Rock while I was working on this — praise be to Netflix Watch Instantly! I’ve been bursting with excitement about this for awhile, but I didn’t want to announce anything until I was sure it was all right to do so.
Here’s a splash page from the first issue — the art is by the same artist who will be drawing my story!
I have some sad news on The Faerie Path front. Harper Collins has decided to discontinue Book 1 and not release Book 3. Luckily, they have decided to release Book 2. It was looking like maybe they wouldn’t for awhile there, and I felt terrible for Alison, because she had completed all the art. If you want a copy, I’d advise you to order one while you still can. Maybe drop Alison a line, too, and let her know what you think. The quality of her artwork consistently blows me away.
I’m disappointed, but I can’t say I regret the experience. The editors I worked with, both at Harper Collins and Tokyopop, were amazing, and I learned a lot from them. Plus, all the checks cleared, and that’s the most important thing of all! :D
