In the twelve years since its debut, Fables has expanded from a bestselling monthly comic book to become a franchise as robust as any other in comics. Snow White, Bigby Wolf, Rose Red and the rest of the Fabletown crew have appeared in multiple comic book spinoffs, crossovers, novels, graphic novels, fan conventions and recently, an acclaimed video game from Telltale Games. However, they’re about to enter a world that even the globetrotting Cinderella has yet to experience: the weekly world of digital first comics.
Tonight, if you're in San Diego at the convention check out the FABLES panel where something special is about to happen:
People (well, especially people non artistically inclined like myself), are often curious as to how the artist got from a blank sheet of paper to the finished product. Well, GRAPHIC CONTENT is happy to bring you behind-the-scenes of Brian Bolland's cover to JACK OF FABLES #39.
What started as a pencil sketch, gets inked, added to, more detailed and brought to life with color. Simple, right?
As always, THE FABLES FORUM was a full of fun and fan interaction as Bill Willingham, Mark Buckingham, Matthew Sturges, Steve Leialoha, Lee Loughridge, Shawn McManus, Andrew Pepoy, Chris Roberson, Chrissie Zullo and Todd Klein discussed all things FABLES.
