Sadly the Kickstarter funding for Project Fabula fell through. I am a little disappointed, but I’m going to move forward with a smaller version of the planned publication to show what I intended to do with Fabula.
For Project Fabula Issue Zero I’ve chosen my story from the 3C anthology The Cruelest Month called Exposition. Which is a tale of what happens to Jack a comic book writer with an extreme case of writers block. When Jack’s characters start to appear out of thin air he finds himself caught up in action right out of the pages of a comic book. This is a story full or Superheroes, Dastardly Villains, Evil Henchmen, Giant Robots and Ninjas. The question is; is Jack on the verge of a nervous breakdown? Or are these events more real than he realizes…
The prose story was a lot of fun to write, and a perfect story to convert into the storytelling Mashup that Fabula is, as it naturally lends itself to prose and comic book action.
I’ve teamed up with up and coming artist Bill Young for this story and the aim is to bring Project Fabula Issue Zero to publication for Baltimore Comic Con, in just over 78 days from now. Below is a preview of the character concepts for Captain Avenger, Doctor Dark, Mechaniod, the Spik & Spak twins and the Metacarpal Ninjas.[photosmash id=20]
