The Last Unicorn Come to Life

The Last UnicornPeter S. Beagle's The Last Unicorn is one of the great works of fantasy literature.  It is a beautiful, haunting story of loneliness, and love, and finding one's place in the world.  Like Neil Gaiman's Stardust, it is a fairy tale for both children and adults, and it is a story that is as magical today as when it was first publishd over 40 years ago.

So when I learned that it had been adapted as a graphic novel, I immediately found a copy and read it.

It was beautiful.  Astonishingly beautiful.

The CapeThe first thing you should do is mark your calendar for tomorrow. Tomorrow is when the legacy edition of Issue #1 of "The Cape" will be published. This is exciting not only because the stand-alone issue was so good it got turned into a series and nominated for an Eisner, but also because tomorrow, the writer of "The Cape," Jason Ciaramella, is going to be stopping by Fantasy Matters to talk about writing comics. So after you visit your local comic shop and pick up your copy of the issue, come back here and see what Jason has to say.

For what I think, here's a reprint of my review that originally ran at Strange Ink in January:
