Jenkins and Ramos’ FairyQuest finally makes its way to the U.S.

After years of waiting, Humberto Ramos had to take it into his own hands to bring his European graphic novel FairyQuest to America.

After initial plans to go through an un-named publisher fell through, Ramos has decided to self-publish the book in an extremely limited edition of 1000 at this year’s Comic-Con International at San Diego. Created with long-time collaborator Paul Jenkins, FairyQuest was released in Europe almost three years ago, but the duo couldn’t find the right publisher to bring it to the states.

Although best known now for his work on Amazing Spider-Man, Ramos has done numerous creator-owned projects such as Crimson and Out There at DC/Wildstorm, and even an earlier European series called K.

The sneak peeks over the years have kept my motor running, and I’m glad come July I’ll finally be able to get my hands on Ramos’ rarest work.

Hopefully, it will do well enough at Comicon to warrant a publisher to pick it up, or for Ramos and Jenkins to sell another run online, because I’m not gonna be at CCI and I’m sure as heck not gonna pay the exorbitant price that will surely show up on Amazon or eBay. *sigh*

Really?? You’re a publisher who’s been offered a *completed graphic novel* by Paul Jenkins and Humberto Ramos… and you turn it down? And nobody else wants it? Either this is the worst book of all time — which would run contrary to the quality of all their other projects — or there’s something funny in the water at these companies.

I’m surprised no one has collected Ramos’ Crimson or Out There. Finite series about teenage vampires & the supernatural seems like a no-brainer these days.

They also had a three volume series with the publishers of Kookaboora K too, Revelations:

And it looks like he has another book from the publisher of Fairyquest, but I’m drawing a blank on google finding out about it or Fairyquest:

I’m guessing publishers don’t want to pick it up as they don’t think European comics sell, no matter the creators.

The three Revelations albums were collected in English by Dark Horse into one trade paperback & the first three albums of Kookaboora K were collected by Marvel earlier this year.
