More Marvel Fairy Tales Coming...

I wasn't expecting Marvel to announce one, much less both of these new series this early, but Editor Molly Lazer talks about two new projects she's working on with yours truly, Spider-Man Fairy Tales, launching in May 2007, and Avengers Fairy Tales, coming after that next fall. You can read all about them and check out some preview art here...

This time around we'll be working to adapt a few more modern fairy tales with the Marvel twist, like Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland, Wizard fo Oz, Cinderella, Pincocchio, and a few more. The artistic line-up is incredible, but you'll have to wait for more details on that, I'm afraid. Sorry.

However, I'd like to post a clean version of the incredible cover to the first Avengers Fairy Tales issue that Claire Wendling did here, so you can see it without all the cover guidelines pasted on it. Her work is simply breathtaking...

Interior art will be done by the equally amazing Joao Lemos. Check out his Lost Boys...

This looks amazing. I bought the XFT series a couple weeks back in singles and loved every bit of it. Great writing partnered with some inspired artwork. Whoever had a hand in getting the traditionally non-Marvel artists needs to be applauded.

Claire Wendling cover and Joao Lemos interiors?

I may have to switch my "C.B.-book-I'm-most-looking-forward-to" to this book! Lemos' story in the ACTOR book was really phenomenal. I'm nor sure what it is about this guy's work, but something really appeals to me.

(I wish I knew what IT was! I'd put it in my work.)

What cool is a lot of guys in your position would have been content to just get onto a monthly and coast.

Instead, you have pushed yourself, putting out some interesting books.

Comics would be a lot cooler if there were more people doing "interesting" projects!
