Press Release On Restoration Day, magic comes back into the world. This is not good news. Bill Willingham (Fables, Elementals) and Barry Kitson (Batman, Fables) reveal that the magic and gods of legend and lore are not just oral history, but real…and now they’re back in the forthcoming series RESTORATION.
Press Release Dynamite proudly announces Legenderry: A Steampunk Adventure, a seven-issue monthly crossover event featuring classic characters of comics and film as reimagined by bestselling writer Bill Willingham (Fables). Featuring interior artwork by Sergio Fernandez Davila, Legenderry launches in January featuring covers by celebrated steampunk artist Joe Benitez (Lady Mechanika).
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Bill Willingham’s long running, and much loved, Fables series is headed to the big screen, and it has Nikolaj Arcel attached to direct.
With his Fables series so popular that two TV networks ripped it off, writer Bill Willingham found that there was enough demand to launch a spin-off series exploring other corners of his fictional universe. His first six-issue arc probes the pre-Disney origins of Sleeping Beauty, who is in a love triangle with Ali Baba and the Snow Queen, while a tiny, naked, blue man watches. Can a comic book really live up to that set-up?
