Webcomic Profile: Hemlock


Hemlock #1 and #2 are now available to buy online!

each issue is priced at £6 plus postage and packing. they can be bought through lulu.com at my storefront here: http://stores.lulu.com/mildtarantula lulu accepts both card and paypal.

since they go straight from lulu to you, they will not be signed or anything like that. if you happen to see me at one of the conventions i will be attending, i will be selling them for £5 each and i'll be happy to sign them and do a little sketch for you if you like.

some of you may have seen me talking about this on my tumblr, and here it is!

the first hemlock sketchbook is now up for sale on etsy! it's limited to 200 copies, signed and numbered and with a free postcard, and the covers are hand-embellished. it includes a mix of original drawings, sketches, illustrations i haven’t printed before, and 6 pages of trivia/commentary. it’s loosely on the theme of “past and future” and includes a look at what all the hemlock characters looked like as kids ;o

there will also be a digital pdf version for sale at £2, but because my hard drive had a total failure meltdown just before i left for spx i need to remake the pdf, so that won’t be up for another few days.

i’ve put 30 up for now, there will be ~50 with me at mcm expo in october and the rest will be divided between etsy and thought bubble in november.

i’m so excited for small press expo!!
i’ll be at table W36A, right next to Nobrow’s tables.

please come and say hello! i’ll be bringing 33kg worth of hemlocks #1 to #4, hemlock sketchbooks, tristan phone charms and some postcards. if you find a bewildered looking englishman at my table instead of my frizzy haired self, that'll be my dad, go easy on him haha!

did you know i've been doing some of the back up features in boom's "Steven Universe" comic? i didn't manage to get a page of hemlock done after all because i've been hurrying to finish a third short before i leave this monday. have a look for the two issues that are out in your local comic shop ^^

Interesting! Soul within soul? (maybe?)
Love this page! It's well done and I really feel as if this was animated. The way things are paneled makes me feel as if it's a soul within a soul type of set up. Or of things coming full circle. It does raise a few questions though. Tristan is in the same body as Sull, but the appearance of Sindri's deceased familiar, Hrimfaxi,(that is whom I assume the horse skull is to represent. I remember someone saying he killed him to gain more power or sum such.) does change things up. Thus I can only think of two things 1) Hrimfaxi somehow is a previous incarnation of Tristan, or 2)Seeing Traistan's soul somehow reminded him of his familiar or the relationship/situation that Tristan and Lumi have, does remind him of Hrimfaxi.

What ever it is, this page is one of my favorites so far in this story! Great job!
