MythAdventures Reprints as Webcomic

Last week, Phil Foglio began online serialization of his graphic adaptation of Robert Asprin’s Another Fine Myth. If you’re not familiar with the story, it’s a comedy take on the expectations of a fantasy story, with a young magician wannabe and his older “demonic” guide, who happens to be powerless. The novel series currently runs to almost 20 volumes, all pun-filled, as suggested by the titles.

According to the site, the comic version is “the first professional comics work by both Phil Foglio and inker Tim Sale.” New pages appear Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. There’s an RSS feed if you prefer that method of updates. (I do!) Or you can buy the print collection and read the whole thing at once. Given Foglio’s style and Aspirin’s sense of humor, it’s a great match.

    It should be interesting to see how this works out. Foglio and Asprin both have loyal followings and the Myth Adventures series was quite popular back in the day, at least within the fantasy crowd. Moving it to be a webcomic pulls it out of the archives and could help it find a new audience. As a self publisher (http://www.ahpcomics.com), I’d be interested to see if this strategic move builds an audience base for archives like this. Let’s hope it does because I have a lot of books sitting in a warehouse!
