Das Fest der Zwerge
This is an anthology of fantasy stories from my German publishers, Piper. One of these stories, The Year of the Ape, starring the Silver Dagger and Kirin, is mine. It’s also in German, and also features a story by (ahem) Ray Bradbury. The theme of the anthology is Christmas/year-end feasts. Available here.
The Tall Tales of Vishnu Sharma #1
This is a new series from Virgin Comics, written and created by me and drawn by the excellent Ashish Padlekar, who also drew Dave Stewart’s Walk In. It’s not a rewrite of the Panchatantra; it’s a story about characters from old, unfashionable stories trying to survive the onslaught of new mass-market franchises. So the heroes are anthropomorphic representations of central Panchatantra characters – I’m particularly proud of Jack(al) and Bandra, a gun-toting, building-leaping monkey-woman – and their enemies are parodies of cute little monsters, boy wizards, and so forth. Available here.
