About Abadazad by the AUTHOR:
John Marc DeMatteis
(born December 15, 1953) is an American writer of comic books. A follower of the Indian guru Meher Baba
, DeMatteis is known both for infusing superhero comics with spiritual concerns, and for his humorous touch.
There are few comic fans who have not heard the name JM DeMatteis. Between his work with DC, Vertigo and Marvel (and now Cartoon Network), DeMatteis has made his mark on every genre from fantasy to super hero to supernatural thriller. Now hard at work on a number of new projects — including an Abadazad series from Hyperion/Disney and a sequel to formerly known as the Justice League — DeMatteis is one exhausted man! This is what he says about his comic:
Abadazad pays homage to many classic fantasy stories, such as The Chronicles of Narnia and Alice in Wonderland. Oz and Narnia probably hover over Abadazad more than any other influences, but the fun here has been creating my own unique spin on those magical worlds; and, even more important, creating a lead character who is very much a girl of today. Not some Kansas-Dorothy or British-Alice from another era, but a tough-skinned Brooklyn-Kate. A contemporary girl from a dysfunctional family who's struggling with real pain and real anger.
The Abadazad books are credited to Franklin O. Barrie
, a reference to James Barrie (Peter Pan) and L. Frank Baum (The Wizard of Oz). The art, though, is credited to Arthur N. Pierson.
The Arthur comes from the great illustrator Arthur Rackham. I have no clue where the Pierson part came from. Some little bubble, drifting through the lower reaches of my imagination.
