Welcome back to Fledgling Friday!
I know it’s been a while, but I thought it was high time we shined the spotlight on another promising comic. So, for the first Fledgling Friday of the year – and to celebrate the arrival of Spring – let’s take a look at…
Blindsprings, by Kadi Fedoruk.
Blindsprings is an all ages comic, featuring magic, secret societies and hidden gateways to fantastic places. The comic should appeal to anyone who loves Ghibli or Disney animated movies!

Enchanting artwork and delectable colors are certainly the best way to catch a curious comic-reader’s attention. A subtle story with enigmatic, expressive characters also helps to keep their interest. Thankfully, Blindsprings has ample amounts of both.
A strange girl in the forest, an ambitious young man, and mysterious otherworldly beings are just a few of the elements that make this fairy tale-inspired work so captivating. I love the soft art, the depictions of time passing, and the budding relation/friendship between the two lead characters in the beginning. It can be a little confusing, but, like all the best fairy tales, there are depths of subtlety that are best experienced when read more than once.
Blindsprings updates very regularly every Tuesday and Thursday.
