I have been meaning to mention this wonderful comic for some time now and just haven’t gotten around to it. THE WORMWORLD SAGA, by Daniel Lieske is a gorgeous webcomic about a boy named Jonas and the start of his adventure into a fantastic world where adventure and intrigue are sure to abound.
This comic hit me like a ton of bricks, like it did so many folks. It was like lightning from the sky and no single piece of comics work spurned a change in my art than this piece. I had long thought of the idea of painting a comic, rather than “illustrating” one. What it really did was get me into pursing digital painting. The fruits of that labor you can see in my recent painting experiments.
It’s a rare thing indeed when something comes out with such velocity that it catches the attention of an entire industry like this. i have never seen a comic go viral so quickly. But what is most exciting is that this amazing book is an ALL-AGEs epic. Something this here fine comic I try and make for you guys weekly is aiming for. This is not only an amazing piece of work, but a great example of the power of the comics medium and a fantastic read for those who love a story about a boy who enters a fantastic world where his destiny awaits…. Go check it out!
