Earthsong, an Online Graphic Novel by Crystal Yates

EarthsongAs I alluded to in my post last Tuesday, Quantum Fairy Tales is partnering up with an incredibly talented artist/writer named Crystal Yates so that we can feature her web comic, Earthsong, as it comes out every Monday.

Crystal has her own website where she posts new pages every week, so basically we’re just here to spread the word of her awesomeness and remind all of you to keep up with the story as it comes out. With an intriguing and exciting story like Earthsong, I’m sure we’ll hardly need to remind you of when the new page gets posted—I just read this week’s post and I’m already pawing at my computer screen, crying, “When will seven days end, father?” (For those of you who like obscure silent film references, yes that was a play on a line from Metropolis).

If you want to know more about the comic, visit her website. Click on the “about” tab at the top of the page to learn more about her comic; there you’ll find an extensive description of the world of Earthsong along with a little background from the author.

Here’s a link to the first chapter (which you can also find by clicking on the “archives” tab): http://earthsongsaga.com/vol1/vol1cover.html.

In case you’re wondering why the art style seems to change abruptly the first volume, Crystal recently revamped the first chapter by redrawing the panels and cutting back on some unnecessary dialogue. By doing so, she really displayed how her drawing style has changed so much from when she first started writing. I’ve followed her work for a few years now, and I am so amazed at her development as an artist and as a graphic novel writer/designer.

So without further ado, I am proud to introduce Crystal Yates and her super incredibly awesome work, Earthsong! I highly recommend you check it out. We’ll be shamelessly plugging it every week until you do! Just start reading now; you know it’s inevitable.

For those of you new to the comic, and those who already know about it, feel free to share your thoughts and opinions on it in the comments below.
