Check out this recent interview with the creator of LEGENDS: THE ENCHANTED, Nick Percival, by CBR, featuring awesome never-before-seen images of this highly-anticipated new title.
“Get ready for a new journey into the world of fairy tales and fables. In 2010, Nick Percival and Radical Comics take the beloved fairy tale characters of old and thrust them into a gothic, steampunk world in Legends: The Enchanted. The publisher will release a special $1.00 preview issue in January, followed by the full graphic novel in April. According to Percival, the graphic novel centers characters known only as the Enchanted – harsh, adult versions of the characters we know and love.
‘The Enchanted are looked upon with fear and distrust by normal everyday folk and despised by their dark counterparts, known as the Wicked,’ says Percival. ‘Most of the Enchanted operate as vigilantes, outlaws, bounty hunters and so on – trying to find their place and purpose in a land that is growing increasingly hostile towards them. Armed with a hard attitude, unique abilities and customized weaponry, the Enchanted’s world is shattered when they discover that some unknown enemy has found a way to break through their mystic immortality and begins slaughtering them one by one beginning with the killing of the half bionic/half wooden warrior, Pinocchio.’
CBR News recently spoke at length with Nick Percival about his take on the characters in Legends: The Enchanted, what sets the story apart from the other adaptations of fairy tales in the comics world, and how his previous work in comics all add up to one amazing view on the fairy tale tradition.”
