Book – Season of the Dead Hours

I just finished reading Season of the Dead Hours, an independent graphic novel by Merk (find him at merkasylum.ca).

I enjoyed it. Lots of walking and talking but it’s broken up frequently by little events, and it would probably need to be a much longer book to avoid all the exposition. The dead and undead seem much more comfortable in their skin than the living, but the art was solid and consistent throughout. The dragon made me think of Smith’s Bone, rounder than many and with a simplicity of shape and line that I appreciated. It felt like the artist really made it his own. 

If long-dead druids seeking to change the nature of their place in the void through magical and mythical interactions with the present seems like something that interests you even a little bit, you should probably check it out.
