• BABSCon Announces Sara Richard and Tony Fleecs

    Convention time~ BABSCon has an event happening this summer, and they've added a few major comic players to the set.

    Head on down below for the details.

    It’s about to get artistic up in here as BABSCon prepares to welcome two of the bright talents behind the wonderful IDW My Little Pony comic titles: Tony Fleecs and Sara Richard.

    Tony Fleecs has drawn My Little Pony comics for almost 6 years. In that time he's drawn over 30 issues and hundreds of covers. This year, look for Tony's art on the IDW MLP comics mini-series MLP: Nightmare Knights and in the Young Readers book, MLP: Best Gift Ever, A Present for Every Pony from Little, Brown & Co.

    Sara Richard is an Eisner Award-nominated artist and illustrator. Her art can be seen on 80+ covers of IDW's My Little Pony comics titles (plus a sole artist credit on Friends Forever #31, written by Tony Fleecs!), and featured on the covers of Jem and The Holograms, Bob's Burgers, Rick and Morty, Miraculous Ladybug, Clue, Ghostbusters and Deadpool. Sara is also the illustrator of the DC Collectibles' Justice League tarot card set and the new book, The Ghost, The Owl written by Franco and published by Action Lab.

    Tony and Sara join Guests of Honor Maurice LaMarche, Tabitha St. Germain, and Rebecca Shoichet as they help the BABSCon staff try to make 2019 the best year yet.

    So register now, get yourself a swanky sponsor badge while they last, book your hotel room, watch as the guest announcements come fast and furious this month, and come play with us this April!
