Jennifer Tong has put the contents of her limited edition book online for all to enjoy. Only 75 copies have been made.
There seems to be a whole sub-genre of indie comics about mystical forest creatures, usually told as a fairy tale, many by women. SALAMANDER DREAM by Hope Larson.BLACK LAGOON by Lilli Carré. Much of the work of Anders Nilsen. FLESH AND BONE by Julia Gfrörer. That’s just off the top of my head.
I’m a sucker for it every time.
