Heart of Ice (9-ish Pages)

Though I've been working on this off and on over the last six months or so, a point was reached where I had to post this guy, learn from any mistakes and move on to the next project. Thanks kindly to Blambot for the font.



I went down some bizarre internet rabbit holes while looking into the wendigo/windigo mythology, but wendigo psychosis, and in particular this report is an upsetting avenue to look into, while at the same time being completely fascinating.

Also, Kenora Ontario is mentioned in a few articles as being the wendigo capital of the world. All's fair in love and cryptozoology, Kenora.

Ossuary and Float are two other comics that have been bumping around sketchbooks for awhile now, so those will likely show up in a few months. Hopefully not in another six though, oh my goodness.

Also, if you're not familiar with Brandon Graham you're missing out! Here's an interview with him that was hanging around Twitter this afternoon, and it's amazing.

  4. I really dug this short! The art is simplified, confident and beautiful. The story is very well-paced and haunting. Kind of makes you wonder if he was just going nuts and eating the lot of them?

    There is a pretty good episode of "Fear Itself" (a short-lived horror anthology show that ran on NBC a few summers ago) about the Wendigo starring Doug Jones. The story is just okay, but Doug's performance is AMAZING!!! Check it out on Netflix Instant if you get a chance. (The episode is called "Skin & Bones")

    Well done!

  5. Thanks for the lovely comments, everyone! Oh my goodness.

    Re: Matthew, I'll for sure do that. Hopefully they have it on Canadian Netflix, but either way, thanks kindly for the tip.

  9. AMAZING. I love your work!

    (By the way just an aside - you might want to change 'phase' to 'faze'?) Not trying to be nit-picky just trying to help! :)

    Nicely done :D

  10. No no, I love it when spelling issues are mentioned. Better they get fixed early on then hang out and make themselves at home.

    Thanks very much!

  11. Hi Kate,
    I'm new to the site, but I read this comic to the end and thought it was great. I finished a minicomic myself (got the final copies printed today, actually). The whole thing will be on my site this week. If you check it out, please let me know what you think.
    Keep up the good work,
    Josh
