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, 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.”
– Brant Fowler, LEP Co-Publisher

When some bad guys come to town to rob a bank, they are introduced to the town’s protector and their worst nightmare – a 9-year old girl with super powers! Char-Mageddon is here to save the day! And after it’s all said and done, she gets a bedtime story featuring…
EEK! Li’l Monsters
Think of all your favorite classic monsters; your Frankenstein, Dracula, Werewolf… now think of them as kids living in a house together! That’s what EEK! Li’l Monsters is all about. In this first story, Boo is looking for a place to live and meets Frankie, Chaney, Gilly, Vlad and the rest. After figuring out whether this new house is a good fit, the group settles in to watch their favorite cartoon…
In a world full of little communities, where do the robots go? They go to Tin Town! And one such family of robots has taken in a human baby as their own and tries to pass him off as a robot. What happens when inspectors come and discover the baby?
You can expect this kind of fun and adventure in every issue of Fireside Tales!

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?).
