WRITING FOR FABLES

I approached the writing of my story for Fables #100 with considerable trepidation.

I had, more by accident than design, written a strip for House of Mystery a year earlier, to which Bill Willingham had added the finishing touches, but this would be my first time writing solo for DC. Add to that the fact that I hadn't written prose professionally before and, as you can imagine, the whole thing felt pretty daunting.

TRYING SOMETHING NEW By Mark Buckingham

As regular readers of FABLES will know, I’m always keen to try out new things to keep the book looking fresh. In past story arcs I’ve used elaborate line techniques, bold styles with strong block blacks, zip tone textures, black crayon, cartoony styles, realism, design motifs, and the introduction of border art panels to frame every page.

With FABLES #100 I knew I had a great excuse to experiment once again.
