Surreal fantasy - Rice Boy and Order of Tales

Postby sixtem » Sat Nov 14, 2009 4:19 am

Evan Dahm, fantastic gentlemen and comic artist, has some pretty great fantasy comics that you can read online (though I urge you to purchase a hard copy if you enjoy his work).

His two online comics, Rice Boy and Order of Tales can be read on his website: http://www.rice-boy.com/

The former is the story of the completely innocent and unwilling pawn of an ancient prophecy, Rice Boy, and his quest throughout the fantastical world of Overside. The latter is the story of Koark, the last of the tellers of tales, and his search for the greatest story never told, "The Ascent of the Bone Ziggurat."

He's a fantastic artist and writer and his comics have a very unique, fairy tale quality to them, in both story and art. I highly recommend it if you're a fan of fantasy and/or classic styles of story telling. I felt I should do my part in spreading awareness of lesser known comic artists.

I think someone once described it as LOTR on LSD.
