Commando artist Keith Page, who’s also working on a new steampunk comic, Iron Moon, for Spaceship Away, has just started a new web comic, Dennis the Donkey on a dedicated blog entitled “Witchcraft Street”.
This is the backstory to his mobile comic strip, Charlotte Corday, published on ROK Comics, revealing just how French resistance fighter, Parisian gangster and occult enthusiast Jean Corday got turned into an invisible crime fighter that looks like a donkey.
“I’ve drawn the first phase of the story already (54 strips) and will be posting regularly up to around 150 in total,” he told downthetubes. “Each strip is one-third of a standard art size.”
