Ed Brubaker And Sean Phillips Join ‘Tales From The Quarantine’
by James Ferguson
The upcoming charity comic anthology Tales from the Quarantine from Red Cabin Comics continues to expand. Creator Frazer Brown was already joined by Charlie Adlard, Declan Shalvey, and Alex Segura. Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips have just joined the project as well, creating a one-page story for the collection.
Frazer Brown says:
I’m sure I’m not alone in suggesting that Sean Phillips and Ed Brubaker are one of the most talented, respected and innovative creative teams and individual creatives to emerge from the storied history of the comic- book medium. Their genre-defining work on Fatale, The Fade Out and more, has inspired the look and writing style of hundreds of creatives, across the world. I’m especially fond of their Noir work which has created it’s own legacy amongst creatives, and serves as a natural successor in my eyes to the works of Raymond Chandler, Elmore Leonard, Mickey Spillane, and in Comics the work of Noir master, Alex Toth, and they have the accolades to prove it. Their work outside of the comic book field is of course equally awe-inspiring, I am humbled and honoured that they will be taking part in Tales from the Quarantine, I await with eagerness to see what they create.
All profits from the project will be distributed evenly between Last Years Rent, CBLDF, and NHS helping to ease financial hardship for those working creatively in the comics industry due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Tales from the Quarantine is expected to be released digitally in August 2020. When all is said and done, it will feature over 100 creators from 60 different countries. The full list of those involved has not yet been released. It will first be published as a 22-page edited version with an oversized omnibus coming later in the year with variant covers and additional features to be announced.
