<< < (5/9) > >>

^ one of my older sisters had The Lord of the Rings so I got to read it at an early age -- unfortunately it had no illustrations. Have seen a book just lately with pictures / letters he sent his kids 'from' Father Christmas and Polar Bear:

Must have a look see if the illustrated Hobbit book is affordable...

^ yes, lovely drawing  :-*
page 1 reminds me of some of Tolkien's drawings

Aw man, smack me for not seeing it myself.... Yes, that is VERY Tolkien-ish.  When I was about 12, I got my hands on a hardback copy of The Hobbit with yellowing pulp pages and a forest green cloth cover, and it was full of his wonderful maps and illustrations.  I have no idea where it is now, but I still remember it fondly.  :-*

Ok, I have to confess I've become a web series addict.  I've killed (caught up from the beginning) a few since posting SSSS, so it's only fair I share my latest obsessions.  Don't worry, I'll dole them out one at a time so nobody gets the shakes...

Gunnerkrigg Court
A strange-ish girl with an estranged father/teacher has many mis-adventures at an even stranger private school.  She makes friends, does homework, battles dragons, keeps a demon as a stuffed pet dog, you know... stuff.
My name is Antimony Carver.  I would like to share with you the strange events that took place while I attended school at Gunnerkrigg Court.

Far to the North
A young woman in a fictional medieval-northern-european-ish setting punches a dragon(!), gets wooed by creepy woodland dwellers, and tries to save her family from being taken hostage by a band of foreign invaders by supplying them with dragon scales.

Check back every Sunday and Wednesday to see Kelu run, see Kelu jump, and see Kelu save her captive family (with maybe a little help from a scaly, fire-breathing neighbor or two.)

Mare Internvm
Mars colonist/AI scientist Michael is about to be fired and shipped back to earth, but possible mental health issues (among others) make this an uncomfortable string of events.  So, then this thing happens...

Author Der-shing Helmer is quite adept at setting atmosphere and environment with her artwork and all the characters have amazing depth that can only be handled by a skilled storyteller, whom she obviously is.  The story can be a bit drawn-out at times, but makes up for it when the action hits.  Her warning of "material that may be disturbing" is more related to the development of the main characters rather than any violence or blood or bare skin, so like I said... depth.

Mare Internum is an online science fiction graphic novel about the isolated inhabitants of the planet Mars. The comic updates as many times a week as I can manage, but most likely Monday and Friday.

Please note that this comic contains material that may be disturbing to sensitive viewers, but has been thoroughly researched and will never be used for shock value.

Descende, audax viator!
