Down the Mysterly River
by Bill Willingham
Release date: September 2011

Down the Mysterly River is the children’s book debut of Bill Willingham, the creator of the #1 New York Times bestselling graphic novel series Fables. Complete with illustrations by Fables artist Mark Buckingham, it is a spirited, highly original tale of adventure, suspense, and everlasting friendship.

Max “the Wolf” is a top notch Boy Scout, an expert at orienteering and a master of being prepared. So it is a little odd that he suddenly finds himself, with no recollection of his immediate past, lost in an unfamiliar wood. Even odder still, he encounters a badger named Banderbrock, a black bear named Walden, and McTavish the Monster (who might also be an old barn cat)—all of whom talk—and who are as clueless as Max.

Before long, Max and his friends are on the run from a relentless group of hunters and their deadly hounds. Armed with powerful blue swords and known as the Blue Cutters, these hunters capture and change the very essence of their prey. For what purpose, Max can’t guess. But unless he can solve the mystery of the strange forested world he’s landed in, Max may find himself and his friends changed beyond recognition, lost in a lost world…

  1. Since I am not familiar with the author, it was interesting for me to go through his works

    And I also like his art collection based on his books:

  2. It was so FUN exploring his site!
    I have Fables on my wishlist. *_*
    It is interesting that you can buy Bill's original art collection on his site!*__*

    I can't wait to read Down the Mysterly River!!! Thank you for this awesome giveaway! ^O^

  3. His "Bible hair" childhood story was quite funny. :)

  4. I found out he worked for both Marvel and D.C. comics :)

  5. A great site. I did not realize Bill Willingham had written so many comic series.


  6. That as a child he was scared by tarzan's bible hair, when he met him.

  7. Bill is to attend the San Diego comic Con. That should be cool! Thanks for the giveaway!


  8. I found out that Fables won the Eisner for Best Serialized Story.

  9. He worked for both Marvel and D.C. comics! I never knew he wrote so many comics.

  10. I thought his site was a bit sparse but I did get a good chuckle out of his 'appearances' icon in that it was a rear end with a pair of pink panties. Sorry that I won't be able to make it to Comic Con to meet him.

  11. Hah! Wonder how many of you young pups noticed in his biography, (part one of the early years) his sly reference to the old Cher song "Gypsies, Tramps & Thieves"?!

    I win lol

  12. I think it is interesting how he is an artist AND an author. Where does he find the time? LOL

  13. The interesting part there is how amazing it is that he writes books and still manage to find the time to draw. I can barely do that! And also the fact that he lives in one of the hot places in the American Southwest, if it was me on his place, I won't be able to think for a new idea for a book! I'll most likely be sweating like hell.

    Thanks a lot for this giveaway!
