I may be a bit of a goof, but I had not realized how excited WonderCon attendees would be about the free Fraggle Rock mini-poster available at the show. It was non-stop poster signing action for the 1 1/2 (stretching into two) hours we Fraggle creators were assigned at the Archaia booth.
Friday, I signed with Heather White (issue 1 lead story - fancy!) and Jake T. Forbes (Boober story that is actually a song - pretty darn cool.) And an illustrator/writer named Jeff Stokely who was at the other end of the table so I didn't get to talk to him very much. I'm afraid I don't know anything about to which stories he contributed. Sorry Jeff!
Saturday, Heather and Jeff again, and also Leigh Dragoon (issue 2 lead story - S'nice!)
Our intrepid editor, Tim Beedle, was there for both signings.
Turns out that the lead stories for the first 3 issues, which will eventually be compiled into one graphic novel, are all written by women. Hey, hey!
We even got to sign the pink shirt sleeve of an adorable little girl who was getting autographs from female creators. Fun!
I have to confess, I am a bit overwhelmed with the drawing power of Henson. Impressive.

Just one correction, the artist who was signing with you was actually Jeff Stokely, the penciler for our issue #1 lead story. We also have a backup story by Jeffrey Brown (acclaimed indie artist who created Incredible Change-Bots, among other things) in that first issue, so I can see where the confusion came from.ReplyDelete
And yes, we do have some awesome women powering our Fraggle comic. Look for even more with Vol. 2!
You see - This is how fabulous Tim is as an editor. I had written Jeff Brown, but it was Jeff Stokely. (Sorry Jeff) Thanks for the correction, Tim!ReplyDelete
