There is a long and rich history of animal comics, especially in the underground comix scene of the 60s and 70s, and they can take on all forms: innocent, raunchy, or somewhere in between. “Korgi: Shrot Tales” is of the beautifully illustrated, sweet side of animal comics. Seven of these stories were part of Free Comic Book Day releases in the past, and this represents the first time that the stories have been collected together. We are thrilled to share an exclusive first look at not only the collection, but also of a new story for the one-shot, “Cloud Cat.” The book drops on July 19th.
Written and Illustrated by Christian Slade
Korgi: Short Tails is a 48-page comic book collecting all seven Korgi stories from Free Comic Book Day, together with a brand-new adventure called “Cloud Cat.” A robot loses its head, finger-puppets battle, a dragon learns to breathe fire, and Sprout the Korgi (of course) stuffs himself with delicious treats! Slade’s lovingly detailed pen-and-ink drawings bring his fantasy world to life in small slices, all bound up within a new fully-painted cover.
