Background and Review

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

Publishing can be a strange business: you work on a project for a long time and well ahead of its release into the world, and occasionally it feels like a Sisyphean task.

Suddenly, it feels like someone is collapsing a telescope and publication day zooms in!

For those of you who are unfamiliar with Sir Edward Grey, the protagonist of the Witchfinder series, here’s his entry in the Hellboy Wiki. For the Mignolaverse scholars among you, check out the incredibly detailed and comprehensive Hell Notes column that Mark Tweedale recently dedicated to his favourite supernatural investigator.

Also, David Ferguson at Irish Comic News was kind enough to interview me about my writing so far, and my work on Witchfinder with Kim Newman, Tyler Crook, and the team.

Finally, I was delighted to read the first review of the comic on All-Comic by Joey Caswell. He’s very pleased with the work we’ve done, which is immensely gratifying.
