The Nerdist just announced what I’ve been working on lately. I’m very excited to say that my next book will be part of Archaia & Jim Henson’s THE STORYTELLER: WITCHES mini series.
Issue 4 (on sale 12/17):
“Vasilissa the Beautiful”
Based on the unproduced Storyteller teleplay written by Anthony Minghella, Susan Kodicek, and Anne Mountfield.
Adapted and illustrated by Jeff Stokely (Six-Gun Gorilla, The Reason for Dragons), colors by John Rauch
I’m adapting an unproduced teleplay which is a fantastic telling of the BABA YAGA lore. Anyone who knows me knows I love Russian, Slavic folklore, so this is a dream come true.
It’s my first foray into (published) writing and drawing. The good people at BOOM! Studios and Archaia have been incredibly supportive through all of it, we’re all immensely proud of the work so far. Plus one of the biggest points for me has been the chance to work with the legendary colorist John Rauch, who I’ve wanted to work with for ages now.
Please check out the rest of the article! The other issues are by some insanely talented people, Im quite proud to be a part of the fold.
The Reason For Dragons (a graphic novel I’ve been working on for quite sometime) got a two page spread in this weeks PREVIEWS magazine!!
So go to your local comic shop and order one because it’s going to be a great book! I say that with all honesty, Im very proud of it and the work we have all put in. Chris is the best writer I’ve worked with to date, which Im very fortunate for, and Andrew’s colors add that special European flair that I wish more American books had.
Please go order a copy!
The Truth About Dragons pg. 1-3 in color
Can’t believe I haven’t uploaded these here yet. Well here they are! The colors are by myself and Chris Northrop (who also writes it). Be sure to full view these in a separate window if you can, they look best that way!
