Magic of Myths: Faerie consists of:

  • The main story (21 pages) and the following extras:
  • Two pin-ups (with some of the artwork you’ve seen on this very site) by Magic of Myths artist, Sergio Calvet
  • The full script

Review snippets:

“The end result is a beautiful book, one that honours its subject matter and provides a perfect on ramp to the larger story being told. Corey and Sergio are two of the best creators in the industry and this is some of their best work. Pick it up, and the rest of Magic of Myths, and find out just how good they are.” – Travelling Man

“I loved it… I smiled broadly at Calvet and Corey’s interpretation of Shakespeare’s Puck as a feisty forthwright feminist – her appearance too is very unique and refreshing – not conforming to usual stereotypical ideas of a what a female hero should look like.” – Elf Lyons

“Overall? It’s a very solid entry into the Magic of Myths series, serving well as an entry point for new fans while also holding a lot of appeal for those already invested.”  – Geek Pride

“Magic of Myths: Faerie is actually brilliant” – Elf Lyons April 15, 2015

Lovely and talented comedian Elf Lyons has read Magic of Myths: Faerie – and she quite liked it:

“I loved it… I smiled broadly at Calvet and Corey’s interpretation of Shakespeare’s Puck as a feisty forthwright feminist – her appearance too is very unique and refreshing – not conforming to usual stereotypical ideas of a what a female hero should look like.”

Our book was actually tied with the classic Daniel Clowes graphic novel Ghost World for Elf’s ‘comic book of the week’ – to be put alongside Clowes brilliant work is amazing in itself.  You can read the whole article here:

Magic of Myths: Faerie gets a few column inches April 14, 2015

As we gear up for the launch of Magic of Myths: Faerie on 18th April 2015 at the Birmingham Comics Festival this week, we’ve been getting a fair few kind words sent our way of late.

First up, massive second city newspaper The Birmingham Mail did a feature on the book, interviewing Corey:

“It made sense, given that the festival is a Birmingham-based event created by a Brummie, while my book is written by a Brummie – me – and based on a work by one of the most famous Midlanders in the world.”

You can read the whole feature here: http://www.birminghammail.co.uk/whats-on/whats-on-news/birmingham-comics-festival-magic-myths-8946767

We’ve also got our first review over at Geek Pride, gaining a respectable 3 and a half out of 5 and some thoughtful praise:

“Overall? It’s a very solid entry into the Magic of Myths series, serving well as an entry point for new fans while also holding a lot of appeal for those already invested.”

You can read the whole review here: http://www.geek-pride.co.uk/comics/magic-of-myths-faerie/

We’ve had more written about Magic of Myths: Faerie recently, so we’ll be revealing more soon – in the meantime, don’t forget to take advantage of our pre-order discount offer before Saturday 18th April.

Sorry for the absence – a bout of the dreaded Norovirus decided to make itself known. But we’ve still managed to produce some good news as Magic of Myths: Faerie is still on track for its 18th April 2015 at the Birmingham Comics Festival next month.

So, how about a look at the cover?

That’s right – our Shakespearean tale of magic, betrayal, gender, fantasy and reality is closer than you think. We’re proud to announce we’ll be launching Magic of Myths: Faerie at the Birmingham Comics Festival on 18th April 2015. That’s just a short couple of months away, so we’re hard at work putting the finishing touches to the book which will have – and already has, if you’ve been reading the books closely – far reaching consequences on Eve’s quest in the main Magic of Myths series.

Here’s the artwork we’ve revealed so far, but we’ll be showing you a lettered preview soon enough.
