Sometimes it takes a publishing deal for a comic freely available on the web to get on my radar…
This short comic from Sam Alden of Portland, OR, will be published next year by Uncivilized Books, paired with a new flip book style story (source).
Despite the rough pencils, it’s pretty masterful, with some impressive shadow play… I had actually blogged about Alden before, but did not recognize this style at all, very different.
There are other full samples of his work, in both rough pencil & more fleshed out black & white. Household, another flip book story, is very dark, so those shadows come in to play in great form once again.
