IN MAPS & LEGENDS Issue 1 is Live!

The moment we’ve been waiting for has finally arrived — Issue 1 of IN MAPS & LEGENDS, our digital comic set on at least two different worlds, is live!

Kaitlin Grayson considers herself just an artist until she gets recruited by a strange man named Bartamus, who shows up at her place and demands she use her skills to save his dying world. Soon she’s caught between two worlds, and if Bartamus’ world falls, Earth is next — along with untold other worlds.

    How can something be ‘in’ a map?

    That sort of cognitive dissonance doesn’t bode well for the writing in the book.

    • Hey Pete — thanks for leaving a comment! As for cognitive dissonance, well, this story is all about that, and then some. Hope you enjoy the ride.

    • Something can be ‘in’ a map, just like something can be ‘in’ a book or ‘in’ an illustration. I think it makes total sense and is not dissonant at all.

      After reading the first issue, I can attest that the writing is above par so far.

    Got it! It looks great!

  3. Hello,

    Just wanted to say that I saw you at TCAF today, and have now bought and read the first issue. Very cool, and I’m glad that I did. :)

    Kind of wish I’d bough a hard copy to show other people, now… ;)
