The Best Band In The World: Mark Buckingham On The End Of ‘Fables’ [Interview]


Mark Buckingham’s art hasn't just made Fables a classic — it has made it, and comics in general, accessible to reluctant readers the world over. His work on the long-running Vertigo series chronicling the lives of exiled fairy tale characters is simple, but never simplistic, and visually strong without ever sacrificing complexity. From Buckingham’s pen flow wooden soldiers of truly oaken resolve, smart-mouthed witches, rumpled detectives and alcoholic, anthropomorphic pigs, all living and loving in the little slice of New York City they've made their own.

Buckingham has helped propel the Bill Willingham-written series to the bestseller lists over and over again, inspired decadent cosplay and made Fables the kind of work that's beloved by your bag-and-boarding friends and your mom alike. Now, as the story nears its end, Buckingham is preparing to say goodbye the world he so richly imagined. ComicsAlliance found him at San Diego Comic-Con to discuss the fond farewell and what the future holds.

MoCCA Wrap-Up: Minx, Underage Authors and Unprintable Sketches


Much as I enjoyed the MoCCA programming yesterday, I made a conscious decision not to spend as much time in panels today, so as to spend more time walking the floor and picking up cool looking books. I limited myself to just two panels --Shelly Bond's too-early-in-the-morning Minx panel and the Joe Matt spotlight which Clayton blogged earlier-- and spent the rest of the day soaking up (and picking up) the indie comics goodness that was abundant in four rooms of the Puck building...
