At Musomic we are proud to present this very special pack of images brought to you by creator/illustrator Tom Digby-Rogers. Here are some words from this most talented of folk.
“Watercolour comics are definitely the way forward! I’m Tom, foremost champion of the watercolour comic, albeit in a self-taught, quiet fashion. I’ve been working on “the Jabbercrow” for more years than I’d care to reveal, but have only recently started to publish it! The plot centres around 12 cities who are forced to fight each other in ritual war every half-century, all in the name of their gods. Victory brings wealth, prestige and divine favour while the defeated are forced to languish in poverty. With the next war fast approaching, the imprisoned Badger King struggles to escape, hoping to disprove the allegations of madness made against him in order to reclaim his throne from the treacherous regent. With only a scarecrow as an ally, the two must confront a world filled with monsters and magic in an epic tale!
The real inspiration for this was Wind in the Willows, mixed with a bit of Trouble for Trumpets, Final Fantasy 9, and Hellboy, but really it is a pure reflection of all the things I’ve loved as I’ve grown up, distilled in one chaotic comic that is desperately trying to manage too many influences while remaining coherent…
I am really pleased to be working with Musomic ever since they introduced themselves to me at the October 2014 London MCM Expo – I really admire the project and am so glad someone is creating something so innovative and creative to help artists as well as opening up existing work to others to manipulate in ever more dynamic ways – simply fantastic!”
As ever we’ll be looking for the absolute best comics created to live in our Hall of Fame. We know you’ll enjoy this as much as we have!!
