Tue, 17 June 2014 Background and Review

Tomorrow is publication day for issue 1 of Witchfinder: The Mysteries of Unland, and it seems almost unreal.

Suddenly, it feels like someone is [...]

Mon, 16 June 2014 Preview of Unland 1

The first three pages of issue 1 of Witchfinder: The Mysteries of Unland have been posted online, and on the Tumblr of our artist Tyler Crook (follow him!).
