Cornell + Yeowell combine fantasy with rom com in ‘Three Little Wishes’

Legendary Comics announces a new project about fairies, wishes and winning back your ex.

Legendary Comics revealed a new graphic novel during a panel at C2E2 today — Three Little Wishes, by writer Paul Cornell (who also revealed the news on his blog) and artist Steven Yeowell. They’ll be joined by Pippa Bowland on colors and Simon Bowland on letters.

According to the description, the fantasy rom com original graphic novel, scheduled to arrive next summer, “follows a contract lawyer, who upon discovering a fairy that grants three wishes, attempts to fix the world.”

“It’s been a delight to work with this incredibly talented team on a proper magical rom com that asks some big questions about the modern world,” said Cornell.

Here’s the description from Legendary:

Of course on the day Kelly Castleton decides to be spontaneous on ONE LITTLE THING, she stumbles upon an ancient magic with the power to change everything! What to do – world peace? Win back her oh-so-perfect ex? Well, if underthinking got her into this mess, her habitual overthinking should be able to get her out of it! When the fairy king Oberon is released from his enchanted imprisonment, he offers Kelly the simplest of gifts: THREE LITTLE WISHES. That’s all, no need to think too hard about it. Just wish for what you’ve always wanted, and he’ll give you exactly that. Exactly, to the T… what could possibly go wrong?

“I’ve been a fan of Paul since Doctor Who, and I jumped at the chance to work with him,” said Nikita Kannekanti, Senior Editor at Legendary Comics. “When I first heard the pitch for Three Little Wishes, I loved his snappy dialogue and Kelly’s desire to change the world for the better. It’s been a blast working with this creative team and bringing the story to life, and I hope readers enjoy following Kelly, Oberon, and Annie on their hilarious chaotic adventures!”

The graphic novel will arrive in stores on July 12. the C2E2 comics convention continues through this weekend in Chicago.
