5 Reasons to Read Madhouse
Madhouse is my new webcomic debuting October 4th! Here are some reasons you might like it.
1) The clothes. Everyone dresses like fantasy royalty 100% of the time.
2) The colours. I want to make art that feels like you’ve wandered into a fairy tale.
3) The history. Madhouse is based on an 18th-century novella by Eliza Haywood, one of England’s proto-feminists (this reason might only apply to literature geeks like me, but that’s okay).
4) The characters. Annilia and Marathon, the star-crossed lovers—she, young and optimistic; he, a bit of a drama queen:
Osepha, Annilia’s trusted servant who works to bring them together:
Giraldo, Annilia’s uncle, conspiring to steal her inheritance:
And Horatio, Annilia’s hapless cousin:
And finally 5) The love story. Annilia is willing to risk everything for the right to love the man of her choosing. Marathon is willing to do anything to give her the life she wants.
The first five pages go live Wednesday, October 4th.
