Marvel Comics announced that they will partner with Dabel Brothers Production

Popular indie fantasy publisher acquired by Marvel Comics

Posted September 11, 2006 8:33 PM

During today's Retailer Summit in Baltimore, MD, Marvel Comics announced that they will partner with Dabel Brothers Productions, an independent comic book publisher/production team most noted for adapting fantasy novels into comics written by a collection of best-selling authors"We chose to work with each other because we saw that we had mutually beneficial goals, and that we could both improve our businesses by working together," said Dan Buckley, Publisher of Marvel Comics.

David Gabriel, Vice President of Sales for Marvel Comics, explained the direction Marvel aims to go with Dabel Bros.
"We hope to bring new readers into stores by leveraging these best-selling authors, and reaching a wider-audience than we already are with Marvel's best-selling super-hero comic books," said Gabriel.

Les Dabel, one of the founders of Dabel Brothers Prod. Said the biggest benefit of working with Marvel will be "access to Marvel's artists and writers.'

Creatively, Dabel said Dabel Bros. Will retain its consistency.
"We plan to continue the same way have, only now with Marvel's editorial support," said Dabel.

Headlining first from Marvel and Dabel Bros. Is fan-favourite, Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter, written by Laurell K. Hamilton. As a way to cement the publishers' partnership, the comic will feature a cover by superstar artist Greg Horn.

The tale chronicles Blake's alternate-universe battle against vampires, zombies, and werewolves who have been declared "legal beings" by the U.S. government.

While Marvel confirms there are no immediate plans for crossovers between Marvel and Dabel Brothers' respective universes, Buckley leaves fans hopeful.

"We have no plans to do any crossovers at this time, but who knows, anything is possible," said Buckley.

Publications on the horizon from Marvel and Dabel Bros. Include Orson Scott Card's Red Prophet: Tales of Alvin Maker, Raymond Feist's The Magician: Apprentice, Ptolus: City by the Spire, and The Hedge Knight.

Future Writings

Ray posted to the Feistfans-L Mailing list the following in response to a question about future writings (Edited)

I have plans at this point to do one thing only, finish the entire Riftwar Cycle. If I don't screw up and come up with an idea that takes me off on some mad tangent, it'll go like this:
Riftwar (3 novels)
Krondor's Heirs (2 novels)
Empire (3 novels)
Serpentwar (4 novels)
Conclave (3 novels)
Darkwar (3 novels)
Unnamed 4th Riftwar novel (1 book)
Demonwar (3 novels)
That's 22 novels to make up the entire 5 Riftwars. The Legacy and Legends books are not, to my thinking, really a structural part of the cycle, but rather tangential story arcs. I might get to squeeze in the last Legacy story (if we ever get the issues with Sierra resolved), or not--hell, I've given away enough about Sidi/Varen in the last two books, it might even be kind of pointless to write The Dark Mage.
If you toss in the six Krondor and Legends books, that's 28 Midkemian novels in total over about 30 years.
I may take a break.
I may start up an entire new world.
I may go back and write Midkemian stories totally unrelated to the Riftwar, perhaps down in Kesh, or Novindus, or who knows where.
So, the answer to your question is I'll probably not do any prequels, but anything else is certainly possible.
Best, R.E.F.

Online Games

Ray posted to the Feistfans-l the following

It's two days early, but I might as well tell you know. The text game is going forward, but the graphic on-line project is now cancelled. Iron Realm had a great idea, but the economies of the market made it almost impossible for them to find the partner necessary to achieve that vision.
So, for the time being, the Massive Multi-Player, Online, Game is done.
Best, R.E.F.

Agent of Madness

Ray posted the following to the feistfans-l

Currently I'm working on Agent of Madness (working title, almost certain to change), book one in the Darkwar Saga. To be followed by Into A Dark Realm, and Wrath of a Mad God.
These are going to be larger, more sprawling books, akin to Sethanon and Rage, as opposed to the more recent, more personal stories.
