It’s been a long time – sorry – but between more work behind the scenes and recovering from San Diego Comic Con, things have been a bit hectic. So expect a flurry of updates in the coming week…

First of all, a big thank you for anyone who stopped by to visit our table at SDCC. Magic of Myths: Faerie gained a great response at the show and we picked up a few more new readers in the process. Lots of pictures below from the con – including someone who looked just like Faerie’s protagonist, Robin – spooky!

Robin, is that you?!?

Robin, is that you?!?

We’ll be at two more cons in the UK later this year, so if you’ve not yet got your book, there will be plenty of chances to grab one (if you don’t want to buy one via mail order here) soon…

Speaking of which, our next update regards availability if you’re in London…

Yup, for the third year running, Magic of Myths is hitting the super hot, super cool San Diego Comic Con this week!

So once more, from July 8 to 12 at the San Diego Convention Center (Small Press area, the Clockwork Watch Films table: O-08), you can find Magic of Myths writer Corey Brotherson sharing a table with Clockwork Watch creator Yomi Ayeni. They’ll have copies of Clockwork Watch: The Arrival, Clockwork Watch: Breakaway, Clockwork Watch: Tick Tock IPA 1 to 3, and, of course Magic of Myths: season one, Magic of Myths: season two and our popular Magic of Myths: Faerie making its US debut.

If you’re lucky enough to own a ticket to SDCC, come over to table O-08 and say hi! And remember, you can still order a copy of Magic of Myths: Faerie from https://gumroad.com/l/sjfk.

Review: “An exciting, yet dramatic, adventure” November 22, 2014

We’ve been lucky enough to get another positive – and very insightful – review of Magic of Myths, both seasons one and two. This time by college professor and writer Jeff Provine of Blogcritics:

“The juxtaposition of the weight of the real world and the epic trials is a fascinating and thrilling adventure. Magic of Myths gives the reader the best of both universes with heart-rending drama, with which many of us can identify, alongside explosive battles against monsters, riddles to be solved, and an ever-unfolding quest.”

Read the whole review here: – and thanks to Jeff and Blogcritics for their time and kind words.

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:

One of the biggest comic book sites online, Comic Book Resources, has very kindly put Magic of Myths under the spotlight for today’s Month of African-American Comics slot:

http://goodcomics.comicbookresources.com/2014/02/11/month-of-african-american-comics-magic-of-myths-seasons-1-2/#more-157769

S1+S2 cover

had this to say:

“Eve is a fascinating lead and I am glad they framed it so that the first volume was alllll about us learning a lot about Eve – both her personality AND her personal history. So by the time the events of Season 2 take place, we know Eve so well that the story takes on an even greater significance since we know the lead so well.

“This is an engaging series with charming artwork from the main artist. I hope to see more of Eve’s heroic journey in the future.”

Thanks for the kind words Brian, and for taking the time to look at the series.

We’ve been lucky enough to get a couple more reviews published for Magic of Myths over the last few months, and while they’re fairly mixed on a whole, we appreciate the time and consideration taken by the reviewers to write about the series:

“Calvet’s art is, if anything, even stronger this time out: his clash of ancient power is less grim and bloody than Di Amorim gives us in God is Dead; it’s closer to a more kid-friendly version of something like 300, but even in his cartoony style, he brings intensity to the combat, and punctuates Eve’s story beats with wit and pathos, as called for.”

– CHUD [read the whole thing here: http://www.chud.com/146712/thors-comic-column-112213/]

and

“It’s full of cool references that have enough broad appeal that anyone can enjoy them but are also select enough that anyone with a more specific knowledge of myth and folklore will be able to appreciate the fan service going into the development of the story and the presence of these characters and creatures.”

Many thanks to both publications for their kind words and taking the time to review the books.

A couple more reviews have come in for Magic of Myths (both seasons one and two):

Utilising a cartoonish art style from Calvet accompanied by witty writing from Brotherson makes this title an easily read, enjoyable piece work… Magic of Myths seamlessly blends modern-day heroism with ancient mythology in a way that only Calliope could counter.

Comic Books and Cookies [read the whole thing here: http://myheartliesinfilmandcomics.blogspot.co.uk/2013/10/review-of-magic-of-myths-season-one-by.html ]

and:

I read through both seasons in one sitting and that’s always a clear indicator of a really engaging comic book… The fact that we’re not following a mainstream comic book style heroine in a bikini armour suit immediately earned points for Magic and Myths for me. There’s the overlap of familiar with an attempt to do things differently here. It works.

Many thanks to both publications for their kind words and taking the time to review the books.
