This is a character for a story I’ve been working on. My scanner isn’t working so I used my phone camera.

Taking the plunge!


I’m thinking of finally putting my money were my mouth is and creating my own webcomic.  GASP!  A critic doing something rather than carping on about others work.  I’m slightly worried as I’ve got the feeling I’ll get slammed.

Witch Knots


Ira Marcks has created a fascinating little town of Saint Forget in Witch Knots.  His mastery of the clear line style is such that he can convey complex emotions with a few strokes.   The three panels are highly addictive as they are never enough as each page adds to the mystery of the town.  The characters are intriguing and each one is well executed.  This is a story in which I find myslef lost and a little confused, something that hasn’t happened to me in a long time.

Ira recently released the first book nad I immediately snapped up a copy.  It is great to have Ira’s wonderful art in your hands.  My only grumble is that he chose to replace his hand written dialogue with a printed font.  He seems to see this as an improvement but I liked the handwritten approach.

This is a story that I avidly follow and I haven’t been this intrigued by a webcomic since Gunnerkig Court started.
