A New Year of Comics and Monster Balls

Happy New Year, everyone!

Every time the holidays roll around I get this itchy desire to draw that tried and true image of people sitting by windows, peering out at twilit snowscapes. Every. Year. I can't escape it. So this year I indulged myself with a painting for holiday cards. Wait, I mean last year. The full painting is under the cut!

And at long last:

Vol. I
is in now in stores!
Please check it out!

A couple of panels from my comic. Pira is not hitting things with swords? What on earth.

You can preview the first chapter here on Archaia's site (that one's drawn by me). I also posted the artist line-up and some preview panels a few months back, and you can see one of Emily's pages on Josh's tumblr (which you should follow for more Spera tidbits)!

There have also been lots of new short comics posted on spera-comic.com over the past few months (and a new design, if you haven't checked back recently). Behold the amazing work of Anna Wieszczyk, Julia Scott and Roman Muradov under the Online Comics section.

I hope everyone enjoys Vol. I! If you're in Toronto, The Beguiling has a nice stack of the books waiting for homes!
