“A striking collection of creators gather to retell and embellish much beloved fables from Aesop and beyond! Behold, the joy of leasons learned through the pens of greats like Tom Gauld, Jaime Hernandez, Mark Newgarden, James Kochalka, Eleanor Davis, and Sophie Goldstein (to name a few.)

THE DIVINE BY LAVIE, HANUKA, & HANUKA

Once only available digitally, this hardcover edition also includes the original pitch document and emails between Vaughan and Martin about what they are striving to make. Get some awesome insight into how something this epic goes from just an idea to a book you can hold in your hands. Beautiful and badass sci-fi noir.” – Quinn
