Wanted to check out this lovely Namesake comic you’re working on, and wow! Love this prologue, so spooky and rather steampunk.
Don’t even know what’s the creepier, that snake thing, the cat, or the little girl on the throne. Love the style.
That is very obviously Alice Liddell, crowned as the White Queen.
My favorite segment of the original books.
Alice, yes, and my bet is thus Lewis Carroll over Lovecraft.
Said notion being confirmed by the list of characters up there next to the title, the notion is carried.
That is very obviously a Cheshire Cat, as well, which makes perfect sense in a pic with Alice & Lewis.
My bet is also on the ‘serpent’ being a Jabberwock tail, since that meshes nicely with a vorpal sword she has in hand.
Very nice cover – I like the way the mirror is oozing…
The Reverend could have a doozy of a nightmare when the mood took him, but he was never the hopeless fool that Lovecraft always was. Have you read any of Carroll’s prayers or sermons? They were beautieful displays of a deep love for Christ, and hope of the resurrection. By the way, since this story is stickeling for accuracy, I have to ask how the Reverend juggles his time with Colliape with his duties as an Anglican Priest. It also occurs to me that the rite of exorcism might be a useful weapon against some monsters. The Jabberwok was a kind of Dragon, after all, and exorcism is said to have been an effective weapon against them in some cases.
For St. George, and merry England!
So why are you making a comic about the Book “The Looking Glass Wars” by Frank Beddor. I just finished reading it last week.
I have heard of but never read “The Looking Glass Wars.” I specifically did not want that series influencing the writing on “Namesake.” Please try the story out, you’ll see that the tales are vastly different.
Or, you know, you could literally not judge a book by it’s cover?
As a web-comic creator, I am trying to find the players in the webcomic community who take their work seriously. You are definitely one of them.
Hey, love the detail work, your color choices in your flats really work to make the page pop in a cool volumetric way.
Aw, thanks! As the art side of the work, I’m loving this complement to bits!
Hey, just came across this. First impressions: lovely artwork and looks pretty intriguing! Quite reminiscent of “Ballad” by deadmouse, which I adored. I’ll give it a wee read, sure cheers!
Thank you! We hope you enjoy it!
Looks like this one has some actual literary reference background stuff to it…
… While I don’t feel such things generally make or break comics, they do tend to make a difference to the commentary (i.e. the comments by the readers). Better that people feel they have something proper to say about a comic rather than just vomiting up compliments as usual.
…… Hmm… strange sword.
You should take part in a contest for one of the most useful blogs on the internet.
I am going to highly recommend this site!
huh…i don’t remember this part…hmm…
This is my favorite ever.
Can’t Edward Lear be a member of colliape? It would be a lot of fun to go sailing in a sieve with pink paper on your feet!
