Halloweek – False Positive Season 2

Do you want to know the terrible thing about fear? Even when you think you’ve gotten over it, when you think you’ve gotten rid of it for good, it always comes back.

Or more accurately, it never left…

And neither did we.

Fledgling Friday: Blindsprings

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!

– from the About page.

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.

Shattered With Curve of Horn

Hello, reader! Come, sit a spell and let us talk.

With the exception of short-form comics, I typically have a rule about only reviewing works with at least a hundred pages under their belt. However, due to a number of factors, such as an upcoming Kickstarter for this comic, my own appreciation of the work, some schedule juggling, and because the author said “please”, I have decided to make a small exception to that rule. I suppose you could say that resolution was…
