Land of Hof
Land of Hof is now live. First issue "Winter" is up for your comic reading pleasure.
There are some rough edges to it all. The site is far from complete, but the comic is there and ready to go. Still a few spots that need smoothed over, including some lettering stuff but I hope it's nothing that will send you screaming in the other direction.
I've been building up to this project for a long time. It's very personal to me and I hope some folks out there will find something in it they can fall in love with over time.
All the comics I have planned for the site are created as "mini comics", which means they were meant to be printed at 4.25" x 5.5". I'm sure for a lot of people that doesn't really mean anything, but for some of us it brings back memories of small press glory days that are quickly becoming rare in this digital age. My hope is that the comic can be enjoyed as a webcomic as well as a printed mini comic. We'll see how that plays out. Whatever may happen, it's fun for me and I hope that shows through in the work.
Those familiar with Pan-Gea will notice some common names being used. Black Wing is mentioned in "Winter" and, as a few of you know, Black Wing is the name of death in the Pan-Gea mythos. More on that later.
Thanks for looking!
