• BABSCon Gets the Story From Heather Nuhfer & Bobby Curnow

    BABSCon keeps ramping up the action as they proudly announce the attendance of both Heather Nuhger and Bobby Curnow of IDW! Have some questions about your favorite comics? Then come on down to BABSCon and ask away!

    Check on after the break for the full breakdown.

    Kapow! Blamo! Wham! Apart from writing and illustration, what makes a comic book special is the story and dialogue that narrates the action. Colorful pastel ponies (while infinitely adorable) can’t tell their own story, and that’s where writers and editors work their magic. From speech bubbles to characterization, there can be no doubt that the IDW My Little Pony comic writers are nothing but magic!

    Talented wordsmith and self-proclaimed eater-of-pie, Heather Nuhfer is the American comic writer that brought us issues 5-8 and 13-16 of IDW’s My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic comic series.  She also has written for The Vampire Diaries, Strawberry Shortcake, Simpsons One-Shot Wonders: Lisa, Scooby Doo, and several others.

    Stand-up citizen Bobby Curnow, writer and editor, is known for writing My Little Pony Micro-Series #4: Applejack in addition to his extensive editing repertoire in the MLP comic series.  He also wrote for comics such as Battle Beasts, Godzilla Legends, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Heavy Metal.  Not only that, Bobby has also written for Ghostbusters, Godzilla, G.I. Joe: Infestation, Jurassic ParkTeenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The X Files: Conspiracy, and many others. Curnow’s exhaustive experience in comic writing makes him a perfect fit for the IDW My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic comic series.
