LAST EMBER PRESS HEADS TO DERBY CITY COMIC CON
LEP Debuts First Titles at the Louisville, KY Convention
A new face to the comic publishing world, Last Ember Press (LEP) sets out to debut their first two titles, PNEUMATIC CASES #1 and FIRESIDE TALES #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.”
– Brant Fowler, LEP Co-Publisher
Below is the lettered preview of one of the first titles PNEUMATIC CASES #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 stay tuned to Comic Frontline for the second title FIRESIDE TALES #1
Death, Mystery, Murder...What’s not to love?
Brilliant Bohemian inventors Lord and Lady Ravenscroft don’t quite fit in Victorian society. Their ideals are radical, their behavior is scandalous and their inventions defy credulity. But what really makes them unusual is that they love nothing more than a good mystery!
What the Ravenscrofts don’t know is that what seems like a simple murder will take them on a journey throughout the European continent as they encounter things they’ve never seen, and track down a murderer that may well be following their every step.
Strap in for the amazing ride in Pneumatic Cases #1 from Last Ember Press!

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?).
