Clive Nolan is working with a famous comic book and graphic novel artist Mark Buckingham to develop imagery for the CD/DVD and for the show, as well as a graphic novel version of the story, as part of the 'Alchemy' project. The images of the graphic characters will be based on the actual 'Alchemy' cast.
Mark Buckingham has been working in comics for almost 25 years, on numerous titles, including 'Miracleman', 'Sandman' and 'Death', all with writer Neil Gaiman, as well as significant runs on other key comics such as 'Batman', 'Spider-man' and 'Hellblazer'. For the past ten years Mark has been the regular artist on Fables for DC Comics, working with its writer and creator Bill Willingham, for which they have earned numerous comic industry awards. He has also illustrated 'Willingham's Down the Mysterly River' prose novel released last summer by Tor books. In addition Mark is also the regular cover artist on IDW's 'Doctor Who' comic and is recently worked with Neil Gaiman on a comic strip for 'The Brilliant Book of Doctor Who 2012' for BBC Books.
Clive Nolan: “It is a very exciting new development to have Mark Buckingham involved with the 'Alchemy' show. He will certainly add a whole new dimension to the story. Actually the great thing is that he can make any visual idea possible... this opens up all sorts of new paths! The fact that he is using the likenesses of the cast makes it even more personal, and unique! We have many ideas, it's just a question of choosing the best ones.”
More details will be revealed soon...
