Coming deceptively soon to Kickstarter – new me-written comics one-shot Worrywart, a fantasy-goblin-orc action story about the struggles of living up to your supervillain mother’s expectations and getting by in a hellish dystopia.
I first dropped news of this comic’s existence a couple of weeks back, along with some spiky demon designs by artist Ryan Foust.
Ryan’s pressing on with the drawing, so seemed a good time to introduce our next member of the team – Lettersquids on, well, letters.
Very excited by this – he’s worked on a lot of the one-pagers I wrote for The Comic Jam, including this early team-up with Ryan, along with classics such as the weird horse-cowboy one, the elderly Batman one, the cute-yet-disgusting Halloween special and this dead-serious Roman conspiracy theory.
As you can see just from those, Lettersquids always brings a lot to the words and I’m looking forward to seeing what he does for the demons of Worrywart.
For a small preview, here’s the excellent logo he’s designed for the project, with all the orc-tastic flourishes you’d want – plus a few panels of Ryan Foust’s uncoloured art from the first page.
So far, we’re at the cute early stages of demonic development. Adulthood will come all too quickly.
But for now, since Ryan posted it on Twitter, here’s another art preview, just as adorable as the last.
