Beneath The Clouds

A comic of ghosts and gunpowder, set in Heian Japan. Guaranteed to be the best graphic novel about 11th Century Japanese exorcists that you'll read all week.

Beneath The Clouds has been spotlit on Smack Jeeves. I'm not sure who nominated it but it's very much appreciated!

Hello readers! I hope that you're enjoying the comic so far. Who doesn't like a comic with a bibliography?

I printed some new business cards recently and thanks to the reliably wonderful
Moo Cards I decided to make a few Beneath the Clouds designs. They turned out pretty well!

As this is my first webcomic effort for over a decade since my online debut in the Noughties, each and every reader is very much appreciated. To show my appreciation, the first three readers to comment on this news post will receive a free card and a black and white fan art sketch of a character of your choice. I don't care if this contest runs until Christmas and I have to post them to Australia, you guys all rock :)

Happy summer solstice

Surprised I have 30 readers, when I've done nearly no promotion for this comic (Hi, family). Thanks. I hope you are all enjoying it.

There are roughly 20 pages per chapter, so not too long to go until Chapter 2, when our hero/ine will start their journey.

Currently enjoying drawing Chapter 3 fight scene (contains swording! Sneak preview below.)
