Girls and boys, this is where you run to your local comic book store (well, where you read this, then run to your local comic book store).
This is the first page of "The Ancient Pact", a short story I did for the Fablewood fantasy anthology, to be published in a couple of months by APE... nice little story, but can't show more without spoiling the punchline, so trust me... the book is included in today's PREVIEWS, so everyone can place an order, has been painfully made with love, and has lots of killer stories. Broaden your horizons, please your minds, help feed a starving artist.
This is the actual ordering copy:
FABLEWOOD GN VOL 01
NOV07 3306 (Page 208.Page 16 in the order form Catalog.)
Softcover, 144 Page Full-Color
FABLEWOOD compiles the talents of up-and-comers like Ryan Ottley (Invincible, Superman/Batman Annual #1), Manny Trembley (Panda Xpress, Sam Noir: Samurai Detective), Joe Infunari (Oni Talent Search, Borrowed Time), J.P. Ahonen and Sarah Mensinga (Flight 4) with talented newcomers like Chris Studabaker (Howard E. Day Prize Nominee), Kevin Crossley (Event Horizon), Axel Machain (Metal Hurlant), Joe Suitor (Popgun Anthology) and more.
Our longest FABLEWOOD story Under the Midnight Sun was nominated for the prestigious Howard E. Day Award. Comic legend Dave Sim (Cerebus) stated that "through a balance of pencil and ink on the interior pages and Christopher Studabaker's evocative, austere and expressionistic dialogue and narration, it's a very successful experiment."
And so we go on trying to conquer the world...
