Isle of Elsi Adventures!

Isle of Elsi Adventures #1Alec Longstreth’s award-winning, Eisner-nominated webcomic for kids is now being published as an ongoing comic book!

I’m proud to announce the launch of Isle of Elsi Adventures! Issue #1 picks up right where Book One left off, with the first 36 pages of Sally Sanders in The Egalliv Examiner. You can see a video preview of the comic book on the ordering page.

Since I have not been able to exhibit at comics shows because of the pandemic, it has been hard to get my comics into the hands of young readers. New stories have been released online as webcomics, but with kids maxing out their screen time during the pandemic, I thought it would be nice to get these comics into print while I work towards the second book collection. I’m excited to send them out through the mail, like I have done with my minicomic Phase 7 for the last 19 years!

Here is my publishing plan:

Issue #1Currently Available! – Pages 1-36 of Sally Sanders in the Egalliv Examiner
• Issue #2 – December 2021 – Pages 37-72 of Sally Sanders in the Egalliv Examiner
• Issue #3 – March 2022 – Pages 73-106 of Sally Sanders in the Egalliv Examiner
• Issue #4 – June 2022 – Pages 1-29 of Liz Tekcar in The Contested Contest
• Issue #5 – September 2022 – Pages 1-29 of Randy Remarf in The Door Dilemma

If you would like to preorder all five issues and have them mailed to you as they are published, I’m offering an Isle of Elsi Adventures Issues #1-5  Preorder Pack!

Isle of Elsi Writing Hiatus!

After wrapping up IOE 5 I jumped right into writing IOE 6. It is another 29-page story, which went through three drafts incorporating feedback from my team of early readers. I am happy to report that I am currently drawing a small buffer of pages, which will begin posting on July 1st, 2021. The next story is called Randy Remarf in The Door Dilemma!

Thanks, everyone, for your patience while I get this next story up and running!

Back at the Drawing Board!

Liz Tekcar in The Contested Contest

I’m pleased to announce that the next Isle of Elsi story, “Liz Tekcar in The Contested Contest” will begin posting on September 3rd, 2020! Thanks for your patience while I wrote and revised this story (it went through three drafts!).

While you’re waiting for new comics, you can check out this “Draw a Dragon” video that I created for A2CAF 2020.

I was supposed to be a special guest at A2CAF in June, where I would have led this activity in person with real kids. Since the event was canceled because of the global pandemic, I instead recorded a video version, which was paid for by the Ann Arbor District Library. I hope to make it back to A2CAF in future years!

Okay, I better get back to the drawing board – I’m trying to build up a little buffer of finished pages before I get back into the swing of my weekly posting schedule. See you in September!
