next up – Comics MD Fest

LEGO Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics at San Diego Comic Con
LEGO Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics at San Diego Comic Con

so San Diego Comic Con is finally over and hopefully everyone has recovered somewhat from it. Bryan “Flash” Turner was on the west coast on a solo mission, putting his portfolios in all the right hands! even more exciting is that his LEGO adaptation of the “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” comic was being given as Comic Con swag at the LEGO and IDW booths! all 3 parts of the story that originally appeared in “TMNT New Animated Adventures” #11-13 were collected in one special edition book. Flash provided the awesome art and Peng-Peng did the lettering for it. if you got a copy, have Flash sign it at the next show!

if you’re looking to relax with a small one-day show to look at each vendor at your leisurely pace, Peng-Peng and theFranchize will be at the Comics MD Fest in Waldorf, MD this Saturday – Aug. 2nd – from 10am to 4pm. (Flash will be taking a much-deserved break from doing Comic Con by himself.) they will have prints and books available as well as doing some zombie sketches for fans of “Fanboys Vs Zombies.” visit the conventions facebook page for more info – https://www.facebook.com/waldorfconventions

heroes con wrap up

now that we’ve been home for more than 3 days straight, we can go back to showing our social outlets some TLC. the ID Studios crew were finally all under one roof at the same time in Charlotte, NC for Heroes Comic Con! this hasn’t happened since C2E2 in Chicago, IL. except this time, we were spread out across the entire convention center. Flash was on one side of the convention manning the ID Studios booth like a champ. Domo was on the other end with his Studio Revolver mates. Peng-Peng and theFranchize were in the center at the BOOM Studios booth drawing sketches. it was certainly weird being all split up, even our fans told us it just didn’t feel right not having us all in the same spot. we tend to agree and we will avoid that same situation again in the future. we made the best of an awkward situation and had to just send some fans all across the con floor to get to all of us. sorry guys!

there were a lot of Adventure Time drawings done, and even more quick sketches for the kids who had those con passports. while at the Boom booth, Peng-Peng was interviewed by the guys of Comics Alternative about working on Adventure Time. check out the interview of her, as well as other comic creators from the con, on their podcast at http://comicsalternative.com/2013/06/13/episode-41-1/.  (her interview starts at the 39-minute mark.) GIVE IT A LISTEN!

we got to see some familiar fellow artists and met some new ones as well. specifically the lovely ladies Sara Woolley and Laura Lee Gulledge – awesome ladies with even more awesome art styles. if u don’t know about em, u should! and if u were there hangin out at the karaoke bar, then u would’ve been treated to theFranchize and Flash shuttin the place down with some Montell Jordan. fun times as usual at Heroes. (unfortunately, all of our collective cellphones were dying by the time the karaoke-ing happened so no photos. d’oh!)

here are pics from the weekend!

fun times at Heroes Con 2013!
