This is the story of a seaside town called St. Forget.

WITCH KNOTS is a loving tribute to classic sci-fi, fantasy clichés and the great young adult fiction of the 60s & 70s...  All the magical books from my childhood. THINK: an S.E. Hinton coming of age tale, stuck inside a dystopian world of Ray Bradbury's, with a dash of H.P. Lovecraft mythos.

THE STORY SO FAR:

The WITCH KNOTS book is based on a collection of web comics I made from 2009-10. After 200+ comics, I realized the story was meant to be more than just a web comic. In 2011 I focused on revisions and peer editing. Finally I have arrived at a full-color graphic novel that is ready for the printers!

 full-color | 138pgs | 8.25"x7.25" | laminated cover | perfect bound | nice pages
