Glass Flowers makes its debut!
Part 1 of Spera-Comic.com's ongoing webcomic is now online, featuring art from Volume I's Hwei.
Glass Flowers follows Pira, Lono, Yonder and Chobo as they head to the Island of the Festival Prince for a much-desired vacation --
only to fall into what might be one of their biggest adventures yet.
The new webcomic will be serialised weekly in 5-page parts, with each part illustrated by a different artist.
It is written by Josh Tierney, features character designs by Afu Chan, Olivier Pichard and the comic artists,
and is produced online with the help of Olivier.
GF will switch to a bi-weekly schedule upon the release of Volume II in February from Archaia.
