Huzzah! The third issue of ELFWORLD has arrived!
This issue is just jam-packed with genre goodness! This is the biggest single issue yet, clocking in at 48 pages (does that count as "Gargantuan" or just "Large?") of crazy fantasy comics from your fave indie-cartoonists. We've got Ed Luce (Wuvable Oaf), Malachi Ward (Expansion), Tom Biby (Two Fine Chaps), Jesse Reklaw (Slowwave), Maris Wicks (Project: Romantic), Julia Gfrörer (Too Dark To See), Ryland Thomas, Jess Smart Smiley (Upside Down: A Vampire Tale), and Eve Engelos & Josh Moutray (icecreamlandia), and endpapers by Anna Branning (Dutch Door Press). All wrapped up in a lovely letterpress-printed cover with artwork from EW founder Jeffrey Brown, hand-printed with the aid of Julia Gfrörer!
All in all this is bang-up issue, with everything from delusional ant warriors and role-playing owl bears to kindly witches and vengeance-seeking shapeshifters. Also, I designed the craziest table of contents yet for this issue, with heraldic shields for all the stories AND a full on miniature battle scene! Check out a bevy of preview images below, if you are doubting the majesty of this tome!
Available now for orders online and also making its premiere at the first-ever Image Comics Expo in Oakland this weekend!
