WYRDHOPE – Chapter Two Begins!

It’s been almost five months now since my webcomic, Wyrdhope, started, and I’ve been enjoying every second of working on it. Well, that’s a lie, I don’t enjoy every second, but at least like, every third second. Yeah, that’s probably right. Anyway, this post is the exciting announcement that Chapter Two of Wyrdhope will be starting up on APRIL 10TH, and also a sneaky early peek at the cover. These are the bonuses you get by following this blog. Mark your calenders, people APRIL 10TH, for the next part of the story that is Marti Gryffin’s boundless curiosity and lack of social skills.

In the new chapter there’s going to be magic! Weirdness! Jokes that I think are funny that maybe three other people also find funny! I’m excited, are you excited? You should be excited, it’s going to be great.

All else aside, working on this comic has already had me seeing improvement in my ability to draw comics, and I’m so hyped to see how much more I can improve as the story continues. So check in on APRIL 10TH to follow along, and between now and then you’ve absolutely got time to read (or re-read, refresh your memory and such) all of Chapter One.


Wyrdhope Launches!

It’s here at last! Wyrdhope officially launches today, so head over to the site HERE and check it out! The cover and first page are up today, and the comic will update once a week every Tuesday. And since comic days will now be Tuesdays, posts here on the blog will be switching to Thursdays, so this week you get two posts. I’m so generous.

If you want to know when a page is up you can follow me on all the social media, or subscribe to the comic feed on the site.

I’m so excited to finally start telling this story – though forgive me the first few pages of art, they are by this point slightly old art, but such is the case with making something like this. Ah! I’m excited! This story is so fun – in my totally unbiased opinion – so I hope you all enjoy reading it as I tell it.

Something Wyrd This Way Comes

I hate to drag out the suspense, so I’m going to cut right to the chase: I’m launching a webcomic!  

As you can probably guess, it’s called Wyrdhope and it will officially be starting on October 31s because I love Halloween and it’s also got some vaguely spooky themes going on. Even though the story is set…in the summer….BUT NEVER MIND THAT.

You guys, I am so excited to share this with you. I’ve been working on Wyrdhope in one form or another for the past couple of years, and while I’ve posted the odd sketch or two of characters and things here and there, I’ve never really shown anything from it. It’s a story I’m really excited to tell, and I finally took the plunge this year to start making it. But Sam, what the heck is this oddly named project even about? I hear at least one person asking. Well, I’m glad you asked, single interested party!

Wyrdhope is about a girl called Marti Gryffin, who is not the happiest girl in the world when she finds out she has to spend her summer in a remote seaside town with her eccentric Aunt Beatrice. But Wyrdhope is not as sleepy as it seems – there’s a wolf-girl in the woods, goblins in the cliffs and Marti is pretty sure Aunt Bea might be an actual witch. There are spooky goings-on, fun adventures, a touch of summer romance, a sprinkling of magic and the world-famous, one-of-a-kind Dice Museum all waiting in this little seaside town.

All being well, the cover and first page will launch on October 31st, and then the comic will update once a week, every Tuesday, until…well, until I finish telling the story, I guess! Updates may go up and down or pause depending on my schedule but I’m working on having a decent buffer ready for launch so things should start off pretty smoothly.

For now, you can find the comic HERE. There’s not an awful lot there at the moment, but feel free to bookmark it and start counting down the days with me.
