This second collection of my award-winning, Eisner-nominated webcomic Isle of Elsi contains the fourth, fifth, and sixth storylines. These were originally serialized online from 2018-2022 and were reprinted in Isle of Elsi Adventures #1-5. If this sounds confusing, check out the new Isle of Elsi Continuity Chart that I set up to help people understand where stories have been printed before.
There were so many Isle of Elsi comics available, I decided to set up a Big Cartel online shop, to help simplify the online shopping experience. You can easily add activity books, or copies of Book One to your order. Check it out!
The Isle of Elsi Book Two Kickstarter just wrapped up, at 122% of its funding goal! THANK YOU to the 180 backers who made this possible, and to all the folks who helped me spread the word about the campaign!
Last week the Isle of Elsi Book Two Kickstarter reached 100% of its funding goal! The campaign continues until July 7 and any extra funds will help cover additional costs and allow me to order more copies of the book! Thanks to everyone who backed the project, or helped me spread the word about it!
“In a world full of fantastical worlds for children, there is nothing exactly like Isle of Elsi. It’s on one hand a world of friendly faces and bright colours, making it an immediately welcoming comic for young readers to explore on their own. On the other hand, the wordplay, attention to detail and refusal to oversimplify make it an ideal world for kids and adults to explore together. Presenting everything in crystal clear cartooning with a satisfying indie comic charm, Alec Longstreth has crafted a timeless children’s saga; a world of sincerity and community as well as dragons and adventure. And it’s a world I believe readers will want to revisit time and time again.” – Luke Pearson,Hilda and the Mountain King
Luke is one of my favorite creators, so it really means a lot to me to receive this thoughtful quote about my work from him. If you have never read any of his Hilda books, you should check them out! They are some of my favorite comics ever, and it has been such a joy sharing them with my kids.
The goal for this project is to print the second book collection of my award-winning, Eisner-nominated webcomic, Isle of Elsi! It’s a fun, all-ages, fantasy comic with dragons, wizards, talking wolves and lots of silly wordplay. They are the best comics I’ve ever made!
I’m offering lots of print reward tiers including copies of Book One, an activity book, and comic books!
My amazingly talented wife, Claire Sanders, has created some incredible 9″ plush toys of the “ite” characters, as well as two 13″ Nogard the Dragon plush toys!
Please check out the Kickstarter page for more info, and I would appreciate it so much if you could help me spread the word about this campaign! Below are social media posts that can be easily shared!
And all of the images above can be downloaded in this google drive folder, if you would like to share any of them with your friends and family. Thanks so much for your help! Together we can make this book a reality!
