• Babscon announces IDW guests

    With BABScon just a little more than a month away they are really pulling out all the stops as they welcome some of the key members of IDW who are responsible for the wonderful MLP comics. Welcome to the Bay Area you guys, hope you enjoy the convention!

    Check after the break for the full presser.

    We are pleased to announce MLP comic colorist Heather Breckel, artist Tony Fleecs, and writer Heather Nuhfer will be joining Andy Price as Guests of Honor at BABSCon this April! We figured it takes more than one person to make a comic and there are so many great  teams working on the My Little Pony comics. So we had to bring as many as we could to San Francisco for best con of the year. Coming to make the Bay Area more colorful, these comic creators can be found sketching in our dealers hall and drawing (see what we did there?) upon their experiences as IDW staffers during their panels.

    A bit darker in tone than some of her counterparts, Heather Breckel (Do you see that cutie mark?!) is known for coloring all the issues of MLP:FiM to date (1-16), including the mind-bending The Return of Queen Chrysalis and Nightmare Rarity arcs. She also colored the Rarity and Luna Micro-Series comics as well as the 2013 MLP Equestria Girls Annual issue.

    Tony Fleecs is an L.A. based comic book writer and artist who's credits include, In My Lifetime, Tell Them Johnny Wadd is Here and notably, MLP:FiM, amongst others. He is credited with drawing for the Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash Micro-Series comics, issue #2 of MLP:FiM Friends Forever, and the 2013 MLP:Equestria Girls Annual issue as well as several covers for each of the MLP:FiM comics.

    Heather Nuhfer is an award-nominated writer of several bestselling comics and a self proclaimed “eater of pie”. She is best known for penning several of the the MLP:FiM comic book arc, such as the Nightmare Rarity, Pirate Ponies, and Bookworm arcs. Her other kid-friendly works include graphic novel adaptations of Monster High, Scooby Doo, and Strawberry Shortcake.
