Rex Jargon Junior is a boy who loves to play with words. He likes his eggs punny side up, he is an active author of alliterations and you've never met a sublimer rhymer. While not a great student, he sure has read a lot of books!
Sally is an energetic lass who lives on the edge of Egalliv with her little brother, Brad, and her dad, Saul. Sally likes to climb trees and to skip stones in the river and to go fishing. She is one of the fastest kids in town!
Draziw the Wizard
Draziw the Wizard comes from a distinguished family of witches and wizards and, for mysterious reasons, lives in the woods above the tiny town of Egalliv.... In his spare time, he enjoys teaching the local wolves to speak English.
Nogard the Dragon
Nogard the Dragon lives in a dark cave at the edge of the woods above Egalliv. Like most dragons, Nogard gets bored easily and must be kept busy. Unlike most dragons, Nogard enjoys reading a good book!
Last week the fourth Isle of Elsi story, Sally Sanders in The Egalliv Examiner, finished up! You can read all 106 pages of it online for free (here’s a link to the first page).
Unfortunately, because of the way the global COVID-19 pandemic has effected my work-life balance, I do not have the fifth Isle of Elsi story ready to post, despite my best efforts. I am going to take a brief hiatus so that I can finish writing the story, gather feedback, make edits and begin drawing it. I hope to begin posting new pages again some time in July. I’ll keep you updated here if that timeline changes.
I also forgot to previously mention that Isle of Elsi has been nominated for best Online Comics – Long Form by the National Cartoonists Society for the 2019 NCS Divisional Awards. The in-person Rueben Award ceremony has been canceled this year, but I understand there will be some sort of virtual ceremony, and the winners should be announced later this month. Wish me luck!
I found out today that Isle of Elsi has been nominated for the 2019 Ignatz Awards in the Oustanding Online Comic category!!?! It is a huge honor to be nominated, especially with so many other great cartoonists recognized in the category.
Sadly, I will not be able to attend SPX this year, but if you will be there on Saturday September 14th, please consider voting for Isle of Elsi.
You can read the nominated story right here for FREE!
