…recently did a poster for Billy West’s upcoming appearance at Packrat Comics in Hilliard, Ohio.

Billy’s appearance is on May 7th, which is also known throughout the geek world as “Free Comic Book Day.” (Note: Nicholas Brendon of “Buffy” fame will be making an appearance at Packrat that day as well.)

NOTE: Before you read the post below, read this post.

Next summer, Silverline Books will release the hardcover, kid-friendly anthology “Fractured Fables” nationwide.

The anthology’s lineup is pretty fantastic, including all-new work from Bryan Talbot (“Alice in Sunderland”), Doug TenNapel (“Earthworm Jim”) and Ted McKeever (“Transit”), to name a few.

For some reason, they invited yours truly to take part in the anthology, too.

“Fractured Fables” is exactly that: Classic children’s stories and fairy tales taken apart, messed with, and put back together. I chose to do a twisted version of “Rub-A-Dub-Dub,” which artist Seth Damoose then illustrated. Longtime friend/collaborator Marla Campbell handled the coloring on the four-page story.

There isn’t a hard release date yet for the anthology, but an abbreviated preview will be available on Free Comic Book Day next year (Saturday, May 1st, 2010). “Rub-A-Dub-Dub” will not appear in the preview, but it’s still definitely worth picking up. Especially because it’s FREE!

It’s still a ways off, and I’ll be sure to promote the book more as we get closer to the release date, but they just sent out a press release so I thought I’d put the word out there now.

Oh, and did I mention that the cover was done by Mike and Laura Allred (“Madman Atomic Comics”)? Yeah, it was. Check it out below, and click on the image to see a larger version.
