A Departure From Traditional Comic Art – GhostBlade Volume One

Richard Hoverman writes for Bleeding Cool:

GhostBlade Volume One is the first ever printing of the popular webcomic created by Wlop.  It's Illustrated in such a way that every page is like an art gallery of beautiful paintings.

What really makes GhostBlade stand out from other comics is the unique style of art. Wlop's painted style is a departure from traditional comic art. Take a look at the gallery of panel art below to see for yourself.

K1The Story: Ghostblade is a full color webcomic created by WLOP. The comic follows the adventures of Ghostblade, a mysterious warrior warped in bandages, and Yan the ice princess, found 20 years ago as a baby encased in ice.

The story is set in the world of Neraland, 200 years after a war between humans and a feathered race from another world. King Ostin demands the ice princess be handed over to his Kingdom, seeing her as a bringer of destruction like the feathered race from ages past.

K2About Volume 1: This will be the first time Ghostblade is collected in print format, with both a softcover and Kickstarter exclusive hardcover versions. In large size 8.5" by 11". Collecting the first 3 chapters of the epic story, over 40 full-color pages. Beautifully illustrated by WLOP's speed painted style.

Volume 1 will also have two variant covers done by the vary talented Chasing Artwork and Melissa Pagluica.

K3Check out GhostBlade Volume 1 on Kickstarter.com and you might be among the first in the world to own a copy of Wlop's beautifully done comic. If you're a backer from Bleeding Cool this weekend, send us a message after you pledge and we will add a free poster print to your chosen reward!
