30 Days of TAH, Day 16 - Fan Stuff!
One of the great things about being a fan of something is doing stuff to show how big of a fan you are.  So today, let’s talk about fan stuff.
There’s a lot of ways to show your love as a fan.  There’s fanfic, recording cover songs. making some cool crafts, cosplaying, fan art, writing some meta… just to name a few.
Today, repost or link to your own fan work(s) and show off what you’ve done!  Don’t be shy — today is the day to let the world see your work!
Doing fan stuff not your thing?  That’s cool, too!  How about pointing out some of your favorite things from other people’s work?  Please do us a favor and link to their work.  Please don’t repost any work without the artist’s explicit permission.  If you need help finding something you’ve seen on FYTAH, check the tags page!
Huge thanks to those who have allowed us to use their work in today’s graphic.  bunan-tsokolatte and her cover song video! jmebressler's Croach Puppet! enjolrate and her pic of herself as Sadie Doyle and danigi as Donna Henderson!  And calebcleveland and his drawing of Sparks Nevada!

The Black Bull of Norroway is a graphic novel based off of a classic fairy tale. It features a strong heroine, Sibylla, and a diverse cast of characters that, we hope, will offer representation to a variety of groups. The comic is a collaborative work from artist-writer-sister team, Kit and Cat Seaton, who have finally come together for the sake of this work.

ABOUT THE STORY

Sibylla is just nine years old when the forest witch changes her life forever. A prophecy: she will be the bride the Black Bull of Norroway. In some ways, this is a blessing. As Sibylla grows she can avoid the advances of other boys, claiming a betrothal to a creature who may or may not exist. Sure, her life may be a life of waiting, but it is her own. Until the Bull comes to collect his due, and Sibylla discovers the prophecy wasn’t simply mincing words. The Bull is, quite literally, a bull.
This story follows Sibylla as she struggles to come to terms with her fate, a fate she’s not sure that she wants. Along the way, she must question the very nature of humanity itself. What makes a man? Is it blood and bone? Is it mercy, compassion? Or is it something else?
A tale of expectations and crushing reality, truth and illusion, The Black Bull of Norroway is more than just another fairy tale adaptation. It is a beautifully illustrated glimpse into the human condition.

ABOUT THE CREATORS

Kit and Cat Seaton are a team of sisters who strive to tell stories to illuminate the dark. Both have been devoted to their respective crafts from childhood, always harboring the ambition to draw, to write, to create art that possesses a breath of life.
At eight years age difference, it wasn’t until Kit returned from her first year of college that the two began to combine their talents. Cat writes the script, and Kit transforms words into images. They have tossed around many projects and now, after years of striving to find the right story, Kit and Cat are ready to begin sharing their vision with the world.

Our fundraising campaign will launch on Patreon on Oct. 1st. The webcomic will go live on Oct. 31st, update weekly, and be free to the public to read. Please follow us on Tumblr, Facebook, and Twitter @petramagpie to receive updates! We’re so excited to show you what we’ve made, and there is so more to come!

Kit & Cat

Un Grand Talent!

Today’s post showcases the extremely talented French artist Pierre Alary. His compositions and storytelling are so well constructed that one need not understand the French language to enjoy his work. With an animated flare to his line, the characters he pens move across the page with a fluid grace. The way he moves the camera around keeps each page exciting even in the simple moments. Look up this fantastic storyteller if you haven’t already.

REVIVAL, REINVENTION, RESURRECTION: THE POWER OF GREAT SUPERHERO COSTUME DESIGN
By Andrew Wheeler
We live in a time of awesome superhero costumes in comics. The rise and rise of cosplay culture, the emergence of comic artists with a savvy understanding of fashion, and the slow diversification that’s making heroes palatable to a broader audience, have all contributed to a costuming culture with more to offer than capes and pants.
Superhero costumes have always been an asset to the industry, because iconography helps establish character and create a brand. But the value of costumes in reaching audiences and reinventing characters seems to be recognized now as never before, leading to the rise of artist-designers like Jamie McKelvie and Kris Anka, who don’t even need to be on a particular book in order to be called in to make-over the characters. This is a great leap forward in understanding just what a good costume can do — and the special skills required to do it.
