A Peek at Fable Comics! | blog tour
Fable Comics is a collection of graphic novel adaptations of various fables by a whole host of amazing illustrators and graphic novelists, edited by Chris Duffy (whom some of you may remember from the similar take on Fairy Tales, which obvs I need to get my hands on). I'll be talking about Fable Comics pretty soon in an upcoming video (woot!), but until then, I'm very happy to be part of the very unique blog tour, in which a laundry list of awesome bloggers and talkers-of-books are each featuring one tale from the book, in the order in which they appear!
The story I'm sharing a peek at today comes from an old Russian fable in which a group of cluelessly jealous animals debate why Elephant always seems to get ahead; it's been adapted by Corinne Mucha to very humorous effect, as you'll see below. And though it may amuse no one but me, having worked in the crafting industry, the idea of Elephant tediously and meticulously (an elephant, of all things! With clumsy elephant-feets!) felting tiny mushrooms . . . well, the image just gives me lols.
Check out the sneak peek of the story below, and a bit of each tale on the Fable Comics blog tour, and make sure to keep an eye out for my next The Last Five Books video, where I'll be telling you all about what I thought of this fun anthology!
