i'm a little hesitant in posting this. i'm not entirely happy with the cover, but i've sort of run out of time because i need to get copies ordered in time for MCM expo >_< then again doing this webcomic has, oddly, turned me into a massive perfectionist, so i don't even know anymore. opinions are welcomed.

the colours are a lot more like the design at the top, the photos came out kind of dark. the lights in my house aren't great haha! these will be on sale online soon within the next few days, so keep checking back if you'd like one :D

Hemlock #1 is now available to buy online!

the first issue is priced at £6 plus postage and packing. it can be bought through lulu.com at my storefront here: http://stores.lulu.com/mildtarantula lulu accepts both card and paypal.

since they go straight from lulu to you, they will not be signed or anything like that. if you want a signed copy, i will be making a limited run of "artist's edition" copies in november to be sold on etsy. these will be signed and include a character sketch inside, plus a postcard set and a special lace obi (tbc). they will be more expensive.

if you happen to see me at one of the conventions i will be attending this autumn, i will be selling them for £5 each and i'll be happy to sign them and do a little sketch for you if you like. i will also be selling some postcards seperately.

I think the cover is really pretty! I love how the beads come around to the back of the book. Good luck at the MCM, I'm devastated to be missing it!

Wonderful ending, I really enjoyed this chapter! The desing of Mother's character is very good, she's like that strong woman who never has time to smile.

And I really like the cover.There's that little thing : The number "#1" it's a bit hard to see, but maybe that's because of the not-so-good photo.
Maybe this cover's not the perfect one, but it definitely provoke's interest and it fits with Hemlock atmosphere so far. :)
I wish you luck!

October 8th, 2010, 4:25 am

In what language is the printed comic in? Is it in english or in Swedish? I'm kind of hoping it's in Swedish XD Original language is always better and I would actually be able to read it too, haha.

Well if the original language is english, it's just great! I just really don't like translations, they are mostly pretty bad if they're not made by a professional. XD;;

I actually drew you a small fanart on my sketchbook and scanned it amongst the other stuff... I thought I'd show it if you'd want to see. It's not much but still... http://hanna-pirita.deviantart.com/art/What-a-dump-182187750

October 22nd, 2010, 11:56 am

January 21st, 2012, 11:54 pm

the cover is a beauty! And the drawing style is out of this world!

January 27th, 2013, 5:26 pm

I absolutely love the way you used the tree in the middle of the photo to go along the spine.
