Ed Choy Moorman - Dark Cloud Comin'

This is a kind of fable like a very old fairy tale, one of the ones that's old and dark and scary. A young girl lives in a little village and the priest comes and takes her baby brother away in order to give him to the giant that lives in the mountains and protects the village in return for infants. She goes off into the mountain to try and rescue her brother. I really like the drawing, all skinny people with big heads, they remind me a bit of Chester Brown's people in 'I Never Liked You'. The mountain giant is particularly well drawn, that's him on the cover above. He also uses big patches of black ink really well. You can buy it here.
