Iron Circus Reprints Cautionary Fables and Fairytales

The Girl Who Married a Skull and Other African Stories

Iron Circus Comics, C. Spike Trotman’s publisher, will be reprinting Cautionary Fables and Fairytales with new titles and covers “for the retail and library markets… with an eye to bringing those books to middle grade readers”.

I briefly summarized the excellent anthology series edited by Kel McDonald and Kate Ashwin last month; they’re currently kickstarting their fourth volume, Oceania.

Cover by Becky Dreistadt

Out this fall will be the Africa volume, renamed The Girl Who Married a Skull and Other African Stories.

The Asia volume is due in 2019, with Europe in 2020 and Oceania in 2021. The covers will be “created by the original illustrators of the old cover art, where feasible”.
