The Abominable Charles Christopher is one of those rare comics that I recommend to absolutely everyone regardless of their age, genre preferences or comic reading habits. It’s also one of the hardest comics to describe in a way that fully conveys the beauty and genius inside, as it is essentially the tale of a Yeti […]
For over four years Karl Kerschl has been writing and drawing his award-winning The Abominable Charles Christopher, releasing a new strip every Wednesday.
