Getting back on the magical horse August 15, 2017

Hi there – it’s been a while, hasn’t it?

Sorry for the lack of messages since the last one in 2015. It’s not been an easy couple of years, beset with personal problems which put a lot of things on the back-burner. And, to be honest, things could still do with some improvement.

However, Magic of Myths still lives.

In fact, it’s stronger than ever.

During my absence on this site, Magic of Myths: Faerie has gone on to be the series most successful book, while the series on a whole has continued to sell at conventions such as San Diego Comic Con and Nine Worlds in London. Sergio and I can only express out deepest gratitude for believing in us and the tale we want to tell, as well as massive thank you and appreciation for your support, especially through such a difficult time.

And, your patience will be rewarded.

We’ll have exciting news to share soon, but we’ll keep on keeping on. In the meantime, please do also keep an eye on our official Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/magicofmyths/?ref=br_rs

Thanks again and all the best.

Sorry for the lack of posts since the launch of Faerie – we’ve been very, very busy trying to sort a few things out and the result was a bit of radio silence which extended far longer than planned.

But the good news is, well, that there’s good news. Which we’ll be sharing with you in dribs and drabs. Stay tuned, there’s a fair bit to go through…

Sorry we’ve not been around since November – we’re planning a few things behind the scenes… but we just want to thank you for all your support and wish you a very Happy Christmas/happy holidays. We hope 2014 brings you plenty of fun and happiness – especially in four colours 😉

We’ve been blessed to have your well wishes, kind words and general support throughout 2013, especially during the launch of Magic of Myths: season two. So a massive thank you again.

There are a couple of announcements we have to make in the New Year, so keep an eye out for them while we’re catching up with our delayed posts…

Rave reviews for Magic of Myths November 19, 2013

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.

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.

In honour of Ray Harryhausen, 1920-2013 May 7, 2013

It’s important to pay credit where it’s due.

Ray Harryhausen has passed away. The man, whose genius help make fantasy and mythology on the big screen a very real, very magical thing, inspired generations with his work. The impossible, made possible through his hands and imagination.

He was a giant in special effects and SFX direction. And simply put, without Ray Harryhausen, there would be no Magic of Myths. Nor, we imagine, would there be a lot of other works out there that we enjoy today.

Good night and thank you, Mr Harryhausen.
