Newsbyte: Thomas Yeates, King Arthur and Excalibur

I found the following note from Tom Yeates in my inbox this morning:

"Hey Bill,

"Here's some news for you.

"For the last year and a half I've been illustrating a series of graphic novels for the kid's book publisher Lerner. The first set in the series is now out, and I believe you can order them on Amazon. King Arthur: Excalibur Unsheathed illustrated by me, and Thor and Loki: In the Land of Giants, illustrated by Ron Randall, are in the first set, I'm not sure what else they've released. These are color, hardback, forty pagers, and Lerner distributes them to schools and Libraries. I've also finished three others and have two in the works.


Both Tom and Ron are not just two of the better illustrators in the biz, they're also great folks and their work deserves every bit of notice and filthy lucre you might want to give them. And to add a bit of additional coolness, Jeff Limke, who's done some fine work for Arrow Comics and other indy publishers, wrote both volumes.

You'll find King Arthur: Excalibur Unsheathed on Amazon at:

While Thor and Loki: In the Land of Giants is at:

Go. Buy. Read.
