The Mire: 5/5 on Comics Bulletin!


The Mire gets 5/5 stars over at Comics Bulletin!


Ideas of love and loss are a frequent sight in Cloonan's output, but The Mire takes a different approach towards the themes, and the result is a richly rewarding, dense and compressed story which feels light, open and dreamlike. It's a romantic story which plays like a gothic take on classic British folklore. It is, in short, a complete delight. -Steve Morris

Hi Becky,
I was wondering the same thing. Any news on preorder shipping?

Usually when I'm working I have a blank paper next to me that gets filled up with doodles and ink tests or thumbnails to prepare myself for drawing a page. These are mainly done in straight ink, so like...forgive the bad anatomy. This is the latest one I filled up, which shows some process of developing Zila and the new look of Cygnus and Bizo. I've always grappled with giving Zi wings, but...I mean, I think it's better to make her more feline-ish in how she moves, as if she is running among the clouds!this site
