Way back in 2020 when I was putting together the pitch for Punycorn, I figured I needed a piece of eye candy to sweeten the pot. I thought I'd throw in an epic battle scene to show our humble heroes facing outrageous odds. There's no possible way they could defeat an evil army on this scale, is there? Spoiler Alert, they aren't chopped down by Sir Ogre's army. This is a middle grade funny fantasy, for flip's sake. No swears, this is a kid-friendly book. However, no kids were present when I effed and jeffed my way through this rod for my own back.
Allow me to share the slow process of completing this RSI inducing double page spread.
As a matter of fact it would. Check out my InPrnt store for this and other wonderful gifts. And I should probably mention that the graphic novel these pages are from is out now. End of November in Australia. January in the UK.
Read the first two chapters.
