This is late notice but since nobody reads this anyway, I might as well let all you know that I’ll be out and about tomorrow. It might well be your last chance to see me in the wild this year before I go into hiding for the holiday season. Plus this is going to be a lot of fun.
Here’s a surprise. I’ll be attending the New York Comic-Con courtesy of First Second Books. They’ll be at booth #2237. I’ll be around, I guess but I’ll definitely be at the Fable Comics Kids Stage (Family HQ) at 3:45pm. Please come see some amazing fable re-tellings with panelists: Chris Duffy, Gregory Benton, Ulises Farinas, Erick Freitas, George O’Connor, Maris Wicks and myself. More info here.
From classics like “The Tortoise and the Hare” and “The Grasshopper and the Ants” to obscure gems like “The Frogs Who Desired a King,” Fable Comics has something to offer every reader. Twenty-eight fables from different cultures and traditions are wonderfully adapted and illustrated in comics format by twenty-six different cartoonists. Edited by New York Times bestselling Fairy Tale Comics’ Chris Duffy, this jacketed hardcover is a beautiful gift and an instant classic.

Blechman, Vera Brosgol, Graham Chaffee, Eleanor Davis, Tom Gauld, Sophie Goldstein, Charise Harper, Jaime Hernandez, James Kochalka, Simone Lia, Liniers, Jennifer Meyer, Corinne Mucha, Mark Newgarden, George O’Connor, Shelly Paroline and Braden Lamb, Israel Sanchez, R.
