A new face to the comic publishing world, Last Ember Press (LEP) sets out to debut their first two titles, FIRESIDE TALES #1 and PNEUMATIC CASES #1 at Derby City Comic Con on June 20-21st, 2015! The company officially launches at the Louisville, KY convention, having the first copies of both titles on hand at table #D15.
“Derby City Comic Con is a sort of homecoming for me. Having moved from Kentucky to Texas nearly a year ago, it’s fulfilling for me to have our official debut so close to where I was raised. It seemed like the perfect opportunity to introduce the world to what we have to offer.”
Below is the lettered preview of one of the first titles FIRESIDE TALES #1, which will be on sale on Last Ember Press soon following Derby City Comic Con. Stay tuned to the website and LEP’s Facebook page for updates and more information. Also check out Comic Frontline for the preview for the first title PNEUMATIC CASES #1
About Last Ember Press
Last Ember Press is an independent comic studio founded by Lisa Moore, Brant Fowler, and John Wilson. Our mission is to tell stories in new ways from the unique perspective of seasoned (you know, salt, pepper, paprika) comic creators exploring the essence of the independent palate (sweet, sour, umami?). We strive to turn the old notions and concepts behind comics on their ear (blazing trails and all that – get it, “blazing,” “ember”…) and make books that are both familiar and innovative all at the same time. We hope you’ll join us on this crazy ride and we promise to only crash every other Thursday or when the squirrels come out (squirrel stew, anyone?).

Our new and LARGER show will take place on June 20th and 21st, 2015 as Derby City Comic Con returns to the Kentucky International Convention Center.
