When the proposal was first approved for CINDERELLA: FABLES ARE FOREVER (issue #3 on sale this Wednesday), I asked artist extraordinaire Shawn McManus to send me some rough character sketches of Cinderella and Dorothy in their Big 80s Garb. And I stressed rough as in “super rough, sketchbook style.” So of course, he sent me this amazing finished piece...complete with fishnet capris!!
Just who is Cindy’s enemy who was thought dead? Here’s a hint from writer Chris Roberson: The second Cinderella miniseries, CINDERELLA: FABLES ARE FOREVER, sees Fabletown's greatest super-spy coming face-to-face with an enemy that Cindy had thought long dead. And we learn that Fabletown wasn't the ONLY community of Fables in the Mundy world, after all.
FAME! While it may seem daunting to anyone who has ever attended the San Diego Comicon, you can get discovered and procure actual work from a major publisher in the same century. Or in this case, the same summer. I met the extremely talented painter Chrissie Zullo at the San Diego Comicon of 2008 through the DC Portfolio Review. I repeat: I met extremely talented painter Chrissie Zullo at the San Diego Comicon of 2008 through the DC Portfolio Review.
As some of you have noticed I'm on a FABLES kick--I recently posted about all the SDCC announcements, the upcoming CINDERELLA mini-series, and just yesterday PETER & MAX. FABLES issue #87 is the start of a new arc called The Witches. At it's heart is an inside look at the many witches of the 13th floor and one of my favorite animal characters, Bufkin the flying monkey. I know, weird right?
Some amazing images from CINDERELLA: From Fabletown with Love by Chris Roberson and artist Shawn McManus with covers by Chrissie Zullo were revealed at the FABLES panel at the San Diego Comic Convention, and now you're able to see them for the first time here. Cover of #1 From issue #2
