Artist MARK BUCKINGHAM signs FABLES VOL. 21 and FABLES DELUXE VOL. 10 at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Wednesday 13th May from from 6:00 – 7:00 pm!
Published by Vertigo, FABLES is an Eisner Award-winning series telling the tale of many familiar fairy-tale figures forced out of their Homelands by The Adversary who has conquered the realm. The Fables have travelled to our world and formed a clandestine community in New York City known as Fabletown.
Vol. 21 is the penultimate volume, and the residents of Fabletown look to live ‘happily ever after,’ but there’s a steep price to pay for happiness as Rose Red clashes with Snow White!
In the deluxe hardcover edition of Fables vol. 10, the existence of the Fables is threatened by The Literals, who just don’t like their messy, mythical lives.
MARK BUCKINGHAM started working professionally on strips and illustrations for a British satire magazine called The Truth in 1987, where he first worked with Neil Gaiman illustrating some of his articles. His American debut came the following year as inker on DC Comics Hellblazer. Mark is best-known for his work on Marvelman, Hellblazer and Fables, though has worked on may titles for both Marvel and DC. He and Fables writer Bill Willingham have announced that they will switch roles in an up-and-coming one-off for the title’s hundredth issue.

Comments Off on Marvel Looking for Original Miracleman Artwork
As announced at New York Comic Con, Marvel Comics is reprinting Miracleman! Cory Sedlmeier, the editor of Marvel’s new releases of Miracleman, is looking for original art from the series. Sedlmeier says, “I’m just as enthused as all of you about finally bringing these stories back to print after their long time in limbo.
It’s an honor and a privilege, and we’re striving to present the creator’s work with the utmost care and the highest quality. Nothing can top the original art boards in terms of quality.
If you’re the proud owner of any art from the series, please get in touch with me at cmsedlmeier (at) marvel.com, especially if you have art from Garry Leach’s issues, since those are (obviously) needed the soonest.
The preferred format for scans is full-size, 600dpi color scans saved as TIF files. If a piece is larger than 11 x 17, as is the case with art from the Warrior issues, scans of each horizontal tier of panels (with a little overlap for alignment) are the best option.”
