For the last several weeks on social media I have been counting down to the launch of the seventh Isle of Elsi story, “R.J. Jr. in The Underground Underground” using my “ite” characters (one for each week remaining).
I’m happy to announce that the story has finally begun! A new page is posted every Thursday which you can read for free here on the Isle of Elsi website. This story is 113 pages, so I’ll be posting it for the next two years!
If you would like to support the creation of this webcomic, please consider signing up for my Patreon which is only $1/month, and gives you access to behind the scenes process posts, a podcast where I interview other cartoonists, and all kinds of other fun stuff!
Isle of Elsi Adventures #5 is now available for online ordering! This issue collects the entire Eisner-nominated storyline “Randy Remarf in The Door Dilemma.” It’s a story about father-son relationships, carpentry, change, and designing doors!
Now that issues #1-5 of Isle of Elsi Adventures are all complete, I am offering them as a discounted bundle. Save $1 on the cover price of each issue and get them in one package sent out immediately. 172 pages of full-color comic book fun delivered to your doorstep!
Isle of Elsi will now be posting on Fridays on Webtoon Canvas! If you read webcomics on the Webtoon platform, you can find it under the Fantasy and All Ages categories. Each post will have four pages from the webcomic, and the first three episodes are already up!
Isle of Elsi Adventures #4 is now available for online ordering! This issue collects the entire Eisner-nominated storyline “Liz Tekcar in The Contested Contest.” It’s a story about art contests, paying artists properly, and a pre-industrial noise band called Racket!
Issue #4 has been added to the Isle of Elsi Adventures #1-5 Preorder Pack. Preorder copies have already shipped and new preorders will be sent issues #1-4 immediately, then issue #5 will ship in September.
For the second year in a row, Isle of Elsi has been nominated for the Best Webcomic Eisner Award! I’m so honored that a new panel of judges once again found my webcomic worthy of nominating. Check out the full list of nominees, and if you are a comics professional, keep an eye out for your electronic ballot, and please consider voting for Isle of Elsi!
If you are not registered, you have until June 1st to do so, using this form. The voting deadline is June 8th.
You can read the nominated story, Randy Remarf in The Door Dilemma online, in its entirety, for free!
I came up with the initial idea for this story in 2008, during my first trip to the Angoulême comics festival in France. It was my first time ever visiting Europe, and I was blown away by the wide variety of beautiful, unique, handmade doors.
I’d like to thank my Patreon supporters, who helped subsidize the creation of this story, and my friends who provided feedback on early outlines and thumbnails: Gabe Carleton-Barnes, Ezra Claytan Daniels, Max de Radiguès, and Greg Means.
