    For the full presser, check on after the break.

    BABSCon Gets Comical with Christina Rice and Heather Breckel

    Stay awhile and listen, for BABSCon has not one, but two amazing guests to announce this day!
    San Francisco, January 12, 2018: Two of the fierce fillies from the IDW Comics stable, Christina Rice and Heather Breckel, will both be coming to see us—and hopefully all of you—at the end of March.

    Since joining IDW’s talented herd, Christina Rice has made a name for herself, giving us Lord Tirek’s origin story in FIENDship is Magic #2, and providing stories for both Friendship is Magic (#s 30-31, 38-39, 55-56, and 59-60) and Friends Forever (#s 9-10, 18-19, 22, 27, 30, 33, and 36). Her talents also extend to Old Hollywood biographies, and with the well-received book, Ann Dvorak: Hollywood's Forgotten Rebel, to her credit.

    Meanwhile, Heather Breckel has been working on IDW’s many My Little Pony titles since the beginning, and it would be far easier to list the issues that she hasn’t colored than the ones she has. Without her talented eye, the candy-colored world of Equestria wouldn’t leap off the pages or the pencils of IDW’s artists sing a song so sublime. Heather has also let her skills to issues of several Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles titles from IDW, stories in Marvel’s Spider-Man and Howard the Duck, Katie Cook’s Gronk, and her own one-woman opus, The Adorable Mini Adventures, among others.
    Christina and Heather join BABSCon 2018 Guests of Honor John de Lancie, Kelly Sheridan, Trevor Devall, and Amy Keating Rogers, with several more guest announcements yet to come. You won’t want to miss it March 30-April 1 at the Hyatt Regency SFO in Burlingame, CA. Register now!

    About Bronies
    Fans of the show My Little Pony use the word "brony", a portmanteau of the words "bro" and "pony", though it can be used for any gender. Typically, bronies are centralized around the current edition of the My Little Pony franchise, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, which was created in 2010 by Lauren Faust for Hasbro. Bronies are typically between 15-30 in age, and majority male, but welcoming of all genders. The fan community is known for its immense volume of creative output, including art, music, comic, animations, and more. Beyond the creative endeavors, Bronies have been noted for their charitable work, inspired by the values codified in the animated series, and participate regularly in events to give back to their local communities. It is the hope of many bronies to help add kindness, laughter, honesty, loyalty, generosity, and a bit of magic to the world around them.
