A Comic Development at BABSCon: We Have Tony Fleecs & Sara Richard!

A Comic Development at BABSCon: We Have Tony Fleecs & Sara Richard!

It’s about to get artistic up in here as BABSCon prepares to welcome two of the bright talents behind the wonderful IDW My Little Pony comic titles: Tony Fleecs and Sara Richard.

Tony Fleecs has drawn My Little Pony comics for almost 6 years. In that time he's drawn over 30 issues & hundreds of covers. This year, look for Tony's art on the IDW MLP Comics mini-series MLP: Nightmare Knights and in the Young Readers book, MLP: Best Gift Ever, A Present for Every Pony from Little, Brown & Co.

Sara Richard is an Eisner Award-nominated artist and illustrator. Her art can be seen on 80+ covers of IDW's My Little Pony comics titles (plus a sole artist credit on Friends Forever #31, written by Tony Fleecs!), and featured on the covers of Jem and The Holograms, Bob's Burgers, Rick and Morty, Miraculous Ladybug, Clue, Ghostbusters, and Deadpool. Sara is also the illustrator of the DC Collectibles' Justice League tarot card set and the new book, The Ghost, The Owl written by Franco and published by Action Lab.

Tony and Sara join Guests of Honor Maurice LaMarche, Tabitha St. Germain, and Rebecca Shoichet as they help the BABSCon staff try to make 2019 the best year yet.

So register now, get yourself a swanky sponsor badge while they last, book your hotel room, watch as the guest announcements come fast and furious this month, and come play with us this April!

BABSCon Gives the Best Gift Ever: Guest of Honor Maurice LaMarche

BABSCon Gives the Best Gift Ever: Guest of Honor Maurice LaMarche

We know it’s the day before Christmas, but we just couldn’t wait to unwrap our present to you…a present that’s going to  try to take over the world! Apparently, it’s the same thing he does every night when he’s not being a meanie and trying to throw the book at Twilight’s school for the Equestria Education Association.

He’s the legendary Maurice LaMarche, and he’s several of the voices you’ve grown up with. In addition to playing Chancellor Neighsay on My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, just a few of his notable roles include The Brain on Pinky and the Brain and Animaniacs; Kif Kroker, Calculon, Morbo, and many more on Futurama; Abradolf Lincler, Morty Jr., and more on Rick and Morty; Egon Spengler on The Real Ghostbusters, and way too many to tell you about here. Additionally, any time you hear Orson Welles animated, it’s almost certainly Maurice: The Critic, Futurama, The Simpsons, and even dubbed over the on-screen body of Vincent D’Onofrio in the live-action film, Ed Wood. (True story!)

In short, we couldn’t be happier to give you the pony con debut of voice acting royalty.

Maurice joins Tabitha St. Germain and Rebecca Shoichet among our guests of honor, and you can expect many more announcements over the next couple of months, so watch this space.

Register now, give the gift of BABSCon to your friends and family, book your hotel room and have the happiest of holidays, from our family to yours. (Note: Taking over the world optional.)

Tabitha St. Germain Will Make All The Friends at BABSCon 2019!

The future of BABSCon just got more fabulous, darling! Pardon us while we use our ROYAL CANTERLOT VOICE to announce the return of the irrepressible, irreplaceable, inimitable, undeniable Tabitha St. Germain.

Best known to fans of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic as the voice of Rarity, Princess Luna, Derpy Hooves/Muffins, Granny Smith, and so many more, Tabitha has had a long, impressive career in both animation and live action TV. Some of her other notable roles include the title role of Martha on Martha Speaks, Pepper Clark on Littlest Pet Shop, Auriana on LoliRock, Nazz in Ed, Edd & Eddy Season 1, Roberta in Black Lagoon, Shana in Shakugan no Shana, and a guest appearance on the long-running Supernatural.

Tabitha joins Rebecca Shoichet (and many more soon to come!) among BABSCon 2019’s Guests of Honor.

So register now, go ahead and book your hotel room, and be on the lookout for another huge announcement tomorrow!

The Future of BABSCon is Here April 19-22, 2019, and Rebecca Shoichet Will Be There…but Get Your Early Bird Discounts NOW!

BABSCon is back, and we’re heading 20 minutes into the future for our 2019 event! When, you ask? Our dates for next year are April 19-22 (aka Easter weekend, as usual for us).

If you were at BABSCon 2018 con at the end of March, you may have seen that we made a surprise announcement of our first Guest of Honor for 2019 at closing ceremonies. In case you missed it, we’ll give you a little reminder: the one and only Rebecca Shoichet will be making her triumphant return to our humble pony shindig by the bay.

In addition to being the voice of Sunset Shimmer, Sugar Belle, and Night Glider, plus the singing voice of Princess Twilight Sparkle, in My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and Equestria Girls, you may also recognize Rebecca as Sota and Eri from InuYasha, She-Hulk and Squirrel Girl from Fantastic Four: World's Greatest Heroes, and as the titular Nana Osaki from NANA.

And if having Rebecca as our inaugural Guest of Honor wasn’t enough to persuade you, you can also save 15% on all BABSCon 2019 memberships—including our lavish sponsor tiers—from now until June 30. Just use promo code EARLYBIRD when registering to get your discount. Don’t miss out…register now!

We’re so glad to be back, and can’t wait to see you in the not-too-distant future.
