Now available: Castle Waiting value pack & Special Edition
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under new releasesLinda Medley 11 Apr 2008 10:10 AM

Hot on the heels of the release of Castle Waiting Vol. II #11, we have two more great new items for Castle Waiting fans: one bargain and one splurge!

 

Castle Waiting Vol. II #1-10 by Linda Medley

Castle Waiting Vol. II #1-10 Starter Pack
By Linda Medley

The popularity of Castle Waiting continues to grow, and to help new fans catch up on the latest installments of Linda Medley's award-winning ongoing epic, we're pleased to offer the first ten issues of Volume II in one handy package at a significant savings over the combined cover price — over a dollar off each issue!

In these issues, a new chapter begins as the Castle welcomes some new guests, undergoes some renovations, and reveals more of its secrets. Secrets about the Castle's denizens are revealed as well, as we delve into the pasts of Lady Jain, Iron Henry, and Dr. Fell. Medley's sharp pen and even sharper storytelling create a delightfully adventurous universe.

A fable for modern times, Castle Waiting is a fairy tale that's not about rescuing the princess, saving the kingdom, or fighting the ultimate war between Good and Evil — but about being a hero in your own home. Linda Medley lavishly illustrates Castle Waiting in a classic visual style reminiscent of Arthur Rackham and William Heath Robinson. Blending elements from a variety of sources — fairy tales, folklore, nursery rhymes — Medley tells the story of the everyday lives of fantastic characters with humor, intelligence, and insight into human nature. Castle Waiting can be read on multiple levels and can be enjoyed by readers of all ages.

• Gilded edge pages.
• Tiny flat two-sided solid pewter charm added to the bound-in ribbon bookmark. Measures approximately 1/2" wide x 3/4" high.

• "Liberry Card" set of three cards: includes a Library Card, Borrow Slip, and Author Card in an acid-free pocket affixed into the book. All are printed both sides on acid-free cardstock and each card measures 2.75" x 5.5". The Library Card is reproduced from a Victorian (circa 1898) library card, and the signed Author Card is in the style of cabinet cards of the same era.

The most official looking costume was, of course, the manga version of the Turtles.  ...or is that the new "Fast Forward" version? Whatever.

Open Your Heart
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Jordan Crane 10 Apr 2008 7:09 PM

Since we mentioned Jordan Crane and his daughter Andalucia a few posts ago, I thought we should link to this video since we never have before. It's Lavender Diamond's first music video, "Open Your Heart." Lavender Diamond features cartoonist Ron Rege, Jr. on drums and is the fella at the end that the singer, Becky, embraces. But wait, that's not the only comics connection: the cameo of the man in the hat with the little girl? Jordan and Andalucia!

Castle Waiting Vol. II #11 by Linda Medley

Castle Waiting Vol. II #11
By Linda Medley

A fable for modern times, Castle Waiting is a fairy tale that's not about rescuing the princess, saving the kingdom, or fighting the ultimate war between Good and Evil — but about being a hero in your own home. In this issue: with nary a strip-mall in sight, the castle folk enjoy an evening of bowling and clothes shopping; and Jain learns some interesting details concerning lovable Doctor Fell's puzzling condition.
