Keith Page Launches New Web Comic

Witchcraft Street by Keith Page

Witchcraft Street by Keith Page

Commando artist Keith Page, who's also working on a new steampunk comic, Iron Moon, for Spaceship Away, has just started a new web comic, Dennis the Donkey on a dedicated blog entitled "Witchcraft Street".

This is the backstory to his mobile comic strip, Charlotte Corday, published on ROK Comics, revealing just how French resistance fighter, Parisian gangster and occult enthusiast Jean Corday got turned into an invisible crime fighter that looks like a donkey.

"I've drawn the first phase of the story already (54 strips) and will be posting regularly up to around 150 in total," he told downthetubes. "Each strip is one-third of a standard art size."

hmmm... It's old style black and white comic. Looks like Alcopone era of cops and robbers. I suggest some heavy promotion for this comic or post it some web comic sites like drunk duck. If you do that you never know...

Yep, it's very 'tradtional': I'd argue the level of detail wouldn't look out of place in a European comic. Love the faces.
