The Silmarillion Project

Unfortunately due to a poorly-timed illness, I’ve had to push back the next comic to the end of this week. In the meantime, I thought I’d share an ongoing Tumblr project I’ve been doing on the side, where I’ve been creating illustrations to go along with each chapter of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Silmarillion! I hope you like them!

  1. Ainulindalë - The Music of the Ainur
  2. Valaquenta - Account of the Valar and Maiar in according to the lore of the Eldar
  3. The Monsters of Middle-Earth
  4. The Free Peoples of the First Age
  5. Silmarillion Chapter 1 - Of the Beginning of Days
  6. Silmarillion Chapter 2 - Of Aulë and Yavanna

Just a reminder, if you want to get any merchandise from the Dresden Codak store (like the new B9 Kingdom books or Department of Awareness posters), Christmas delivery deadlines are fast approaching!

Dark Science #22 - Caspar

New to Dark Science? Read from the beginning!

Apologies for this comic being a couple days late. Hurricane Sandy has caused a lot of trouble up here in Brooklyn, and things are only now beginning to enter any state of normalcy. All things considered, I made it out pretty well compared to my fellow East-Coasters. Hats off to the fine people who’ve been selflessly reassembling civilization on this coast.

Small Press Expo THIS WEEKEND in Bethesda, MD

Guys! I’ll be at the Small Press Expo this weekend, in Bethesda, MD (right outside DC)! I’ll be bringing along some cool new stuff like my B9 Kingdom Art Book (never before seen by humans), so don’t miss your chance to get one signed in person!

You can find me at tables W13-W20, with all the Topatoco guys!

Unfortunately preparing for SPX took longer than expected, so I’ve been forced to push the next page of Dark Science to next week. But it’s a good one, I promise!
