Once Upon a Time Machine: Greek Gods & Legends (from old friends)
Hi, Nemo backers!
We realized, just now, that you might be interested to know about a new book that a whole bunch of Little Nemo: Dream Another Dream creators had a hand in making!
In April, Dark Horse Comics released Once Upon a Time Machine Vol. 2: Greek Gods & Legends. Don't worry, you needn't have read Volume 1. Like Little Nemo, this is an anthology where every story stands on its own. It's also the first anthology we've put together since Nemo.
In OUATM Vol. 2, each creator or creative team has taken a story or character from Greek mythology and re-imagined it in the realm of science fiction. Whether action, comedy, hard sci-fi, romance, or any combination thereof, a full range of approaches is explored in a diverse collection of stories.
These new visions of the Greek tradition include a time-travelling Icarus, creation mythology commandeered by a terraforming satellite, Apollo's social-media-age pursuit of Daphne, and a showdown between developers of a virtual reality RPG.
Returning creators from Locust Moon's Little Nemo include editors (also writers, here) Andrew Carl, Chris Stevens, and Josh O'Neill, as well as artists Ronald Wimberly, Toby Cypress, Paul Pope, Jonathan Tune, Mike Sgier, Charles Fetherolf, Dave Chisholm, Andrea Tsurumi, and James Comey, all providing stories. Paul Rivoche, Maelle Doliveux, JM Dragunas, Gregory Benton, Bodie Chewning, and Aaron Conley have also returned with pinups, and Farel Dalrymple has painted the cover.
Here's a preview, featuring some of these old friends...
You'll find more previews, and updates on creators appearances, at Once Upon a Time Machine's website here and Facebook page here. You can buy the book on Amazon and lots of other places - including your local comic and book stores.
To the future!
