Ever walked home at night in the snow, long past the last bus, wrapped up in cold and loneliness? Staring up at the sky, wishing you'd gone home earlier as you trudge your way through slush?
Sam and her brother Luke are out too late in London, caught between a rock and a cold place. On one side, a loan shark demanding they repay their debt by stealing a magical artefact. On the other, the icy fury of its original owner - Jack Frost himself.
Scrambling away into the night, they find themselves prey in a desperate chase, caught in a hellish supernatural snowstorm.
A chill hit the air, a hulking figure emerged --
AND IT SNOWED.
This is the third and (for now) final entry in my Monochrome Trilogy of black and white one-shots, with Little Deaths of Watson Tower and Moonframe. It's drawn in stark inks by Robert Ahmad (The Catalyst, Headless, Cut-Man) and lettered by DC Hopkins (Star Trek, Ghosted in LA). We funded on Kickstarter in September, hitting nearly 200% of our goal.
I had two main goals with And It Snowed - first, to capture my own experiences trudging across London on a snowy night - the endless, sometimes unsettling loneliness of it. Secondly, to play to Robert’s amazing ability to draw haunting noir-ish storybook cityscapes. I’m thrilled with the outcome on both counts, and I think it’s a fitting, fast-paced, emotional end to this phase of my comics self-publishing.
