Marvel has given me the OK to debut some art from X-Men Fairy Tales #3 here online. Thanks, Jimmy Mac!
First off, the cover...
Like most writers, I keep a list of "dream artists" who I would love to work with one day. Renowned French illustrator Claire Wendling's name sits firmly in the my top three. So I could not be happier to announce that Claire will be bringing her artistic grace to our cover this issue:
I believe this might even be her American comics debut...
A heartfelt thanks to my friend Olivier Jalabert for helping make this happen! I owe you, brother!
Katsuhiro Otomo... I'm coming for you next!
And speaking of manga artists, the issue's intertiors will be illustrated by one of the most talented and accliamed artists currently working in Japan, Kei Kobayashi! Kei was my partner-in-crime on the masterful Medusa story in the I (Heart) Marvel special that received rave reviews, and he's going to top himself on this story. See for yourself:
X-Men Fairy Tales #3 is on sale in July and available for pre-order in the upcoming Diamond Previews catalog!
