Well, Magic of Myths made its second San Diego Comic-Con appearance and got a warm welcome from the show goers who stopped by to take a look at the book. A few more fans were made and many were either interested by the premise or loved Sergio’s visual style on the book enough to pick up a copy. Many thanks if you purchased one or just had kind words for us at the table.

We also were fortunate enough to take part in a couple of interviews, the first being from The Geek Speak Show, who interviewed Magic of Myths‘ writer Corey Brotherson about the series and one of his other projects, Vampire Boogie:

Literally, just a few words – on the prints themselves. Eagle-eyed readers of William Shakespeare may recognise them…

…Yes, you guessed, it, more Magic of Myths: Faerie tidbits.

We’ve been teasing Magic of Myths: Faerie for the past month, but now it’s really time to peel back a larger layer of the project. And what better time than on William Shakespeare’s birthday?

In case some of the characters didn’t tip you off, Magic of Myths: Faerie  is based around and – more importantly – after Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. In our story, the classic play has been written and performed… and someone from the Faerie kingdom is brutally unhappy with it. So much, that something must be done. Alas, an event is already happening that will change the realm of Faerie forever – and have massive consequences on the overall Magic of Myths storyline.

Eagle-eyed Magic of Myths readers will have noticed this isn’t the first time we’ve referenced Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream in the series. Why this is will be revealed over time…

Some final character sketches from Magic of Myths: Faerie before we show off a little bit of colour…

These are the last three main characters of Magic of Myths: Faerie – Mercury, Hermes and “Greenie”. While they have small parts in the story, their actions are significant.

Those who are familiar with Magic of Myths to date will know it involves Greek and Roman deities co-existing, and this story marks the first appearance of Hermes (Greek messenger, god of trade, thieves, travelers, sports; guide to the Underworld) and Mercury (Roman messenger, god of financial gain, travelers, luck, trickery, thieves; guide to the Underworld). Both are visiting Faerie, and neither leaves the same by the end of the tale – something which impacts the events seen in Magic of Myths: season two.

“Greenie”, on the other hand, is entirely new to Magic of Myths. He’s our version of the archetypical nature deity and the sage of Faerie. Robin relies on him for advice, which is something very much required given the events of the story…

It’s time to check in on more Magic of Myths: Faerie character artwork…

Oberon, the king of the fairies. His regal manner cannot hide a single minded bitterness that threatens to change his entire realm, and everyone in it. While he’s well practiced in the art of war, there is only one rival who he cannot overcome. A fact which drives him to the most drastic of measures…
