“Faerie Fire” – an RPG bestiary featuring cloudscape contributors

If you are a fan of role-playing games or great monster art, then you should know that Faerie Fire has started its kickstarter. This is a Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition supplement masterminded by prominent Cloudscape contributor Shannon Campbell that explores the bizarre world of the fairies with numerous new monsters and magical items. Faerie Fire is inspired by the neon noir aesthetic of the late 80s, with a touch of Trapper Keeper, and a spot of 90s Lisa Frank thrown in for good measure. With magic reminiscent of neon lights and holograms, and a fey court full of glamour, the fairy wilds are filled with creatures dazzling and deadly in equal measure.

Faerie Fire features numerous artists who also have contributed to Cloudscape books, including Renee Nault, Nina Matsumoto, Sfe Monster, and Alina Pete. Part artbook, part bestiary, Faerie Fire is guaranteed to be a stunning addition to your bookshelf. To order it and various other great perks, go to the Faerie Fire Kickstarter page.

Cloudscape Comics featured in Vancouver Metro

Our executive director, Oliver McTavish-Wisden, was interviewed in the Vancouver Metro, where he talks about Cloudscape’s history, our anthologies, Comics in Transit,  and Vancouver comics in general.

“From a graphic novel that explores Vancouver’s dystopian future to a series of oversized comics that expose transit users to the complexities of life as a refugee to Canada, more and more Vancouver artists are drawn to comics. Many see the art form as a way to explore social truths — and to build community….  The Cloudscape Comics Society continues to have an important influence on Vancouver’s emerging scene. A charity organization of independent comic book artists based in Metro Vancouver, they publish local BC comics and ‘foster a community where BC comic creators can network with each other while developing their craft and continuing to push the boundaries of the comic book medium.'”
