I wanted to share this Humpty Dumpty balloon animal by balloon artist Derek Muterspaw, who I had the pleasure of meeting at Eternal Con last month. I think he captured Humpty’s likeness exactly! See this and more Suburban Fairy Tales fan art in the Fan Art Gallery.

Solicitations are now up for Archie’s Funhouse Comics Double Digest #17, which ships August 26th.
Here is a description of my story, right off Archie’s website:
Archie wants to do something special for Betty’s birthday, so he decides to bake her a cake—unfortunately, Archie’s never actually tried to bake a cake before! But how hard can it be? With his good pal Jughead by his side, he should be able to accomplish anything he sets his mind to. Providing, of course, that Jughead doesn’t eat everything before he even gets a chance to start baking! Will Archie give Betty the best birthday gift ever? Or is this plan a cake mistake? Find out in “Caketastrophe,” the fun lead story to this comics double digest!
Script: Francis Bonnet
Art: Pat and Tim Kennedy
Cover: Dan Parent, Bob Smith, Rosario “Tito” Peña
On Sale Date: 8/26
160-page, full color comic
I hope everyone will pick up a copy of the book when it goes on sale at your local newsstand, comics shop, book store, or digital storefront and support me in this new endeavor. More information can be found on Archie’s website.
The dates are June 13-14, 2015 at the Cradle of Aviation Museum in Garden City, NY.
I will be at the table the entire weekend selling all four Suburban Fairy Tales books and my one Made To Malfunction book. Free original sketches will be given away with every book purchase. In addition, I will be selling Suburban Fairy Tales posters and original Frog Prince sculptures by Hamptons sculptor Justin Hart.
Tickets are now available for purchase on the Eternal Con website. Hope to see you there!
Congratulations to Daniel Park, winner of the Suburban Fairy Tales Fan Art Contest! All the entries I received were great, but Daniel’s fan art was very creative — he attempted to explore the history of Rapunzel, Goldilocks, and Red Riding Hood by drawing their ancestors. This is something even I never thought about when writing the comic.
Daniel has chosen Made To Malfunction: The Complete Collection as his prize (he already had all the other Suburban Fairy Tales books).
You can check out all the other fan art entries along with previously submitted fan art in the new Suburban Fairy Tales Fan Art Showcase. Thank you to everyone for their submissions!
