Fearsome Fables (Digital)


Fearsome Fables (Digital)


Log line
A collection of spooky, all-ages tales to chill your bones. Net proceeds benefit Child's Play.

At Hal-Con 2010, Peter Chiykowski and I discussed ways to work together on a comic. I suggested an anthology and asked a few others at the show to gauge initial interest. Once Peter introduced the charity, things really took shape.

That book, What the Wild Things launched at the following Hal-Con and went over quite well. We received a thank-you card from the charity, as well as a video. Based on this success, we were able to expand our scope for this second volume.

2012 02 29 update: Here is a letter we received from Child's Play indicating we have made them our charity of choice for 2012.

2013 02 18 update: Here is a neat little story about Fearsome Fables used as a teaching aid in Korea.
