New Comics! New Appearences!

The Battle of Blood & Ink graphic novel has been out for months. The podcast has finished its 44 episodes. You’ve already read the first mini comic. Is this this end of Fables of the Flying City content?

Of course not!

We have been hard at work on a second mini-comic, all about podcast-fan-favorite character Hanner Gatling, which is now ready for your reading, and featuring a sumptuous cover colored by Jennifer Rodgers! And we’ve redone the mini-comic section of the site, so all those with tablets and mobile devices can get your Fables of the Flying City goodness without all those flash-player issues!

But that’s not all!

The whole Fables of the Flying City crew–all two of us–will be a part of Watch The Skies, a steampunk event in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania on August 25, alongside the steampunk talents of Sarah Hunter of Brute Force Studios and Tee Morris and Philippa Ballantine of the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences series. There will be no better place to get your steam on!

We’ve got a few more appearances planned for later this year, but we always like to add more. If there’s an event that you think we should be at, let us know in the comments!

The Battle of Blood and Ink Preview Video

When Steve and I were designing The Battle of Blood and Ink, we thought carefully about the kind of story we wanted to tell, and the place we wanted to tell that story.  This video discussed our thoughts and inspirations behind the story, and has several preview pages from the book. I hope you enjoy it.

The response the mini-comic contest was so positive, Steve and I are going to go ahead and send autographed copies of the first FABLES OF THE FLYING CITY mini-comic to EVERYONE who entered.

This Is What The Book Looks Like

Fables Of the Flying City Cover

This the graphic novel that we have been working on for the past five years or so.

Actually, it isn’t. It’s merely the cover of the graphic novel we have been working on for the past five years or so, wrapped around another hardcover graphic novel. That said, it’s the right weight when I hold it my hand, and if you were looking for THE BATTLE OF BLOOD AND INK: A FABLE OF THE FLYING CITY come May of 2012 (and why wouldn’t you?) this would be what you looking for.

It’s all very exciting.

A Must-Have For Any Fashionable Clouddog

I recently did a test-run of a Fables of the Flying City patch–featuring Amperstam, natch, and I am quite pleased with the results:

Flying City Patch

This patch, featuring the fantastic artwork of Steve Walker and Natalie Kelly,  will perhaps be the first in a series of  Flying City-themed patches, thus making it easy for the average clouddog to steampunk-up their wardrobe.  The print quality and fabric is super-nice. Now that we know that we CAN make these patches, the question becomes if we SHOULD.

Who wants a patch?

Building A Raygun For The Flying City

Ever felt the need to wrap your fingers around one of Amperstam’s lightning pistols, just like the ladies and gents of the Aerial Guard? Now you can! With just a handful of supplies and a little hard work, you can make your own raygun by following these simple instructions on Tor.com.

Check out the rest of the awesome Steampunk Fortnight stuff while you’re over there.  There’s some wonderful, non-raygun related articles.
