Drawn in 2012, ink/digital

The classic hero’s journey…sort of. Struggling actor/burglar Jack Leverett’s mouth runs away with him when he’s cornered by Pan and Morgan, and in a moment of desperation he tells them he’s on a holy pilgrimage in the name of their sister Artemis. Unfortunately, they believe him and resolve to help him complete his quest. Suddenly his world of fiction and fantasy is all too real.

Long, long, long, long ago — no, longer than that — humans were not the first to keep gods. And gods were not the first creatures to be revered by mortals. In the dying days between the old order and the rise of the new, a pack of wild wolves search for a way to preserve their fading ways of life. It falls to wise Yellow Eyes and bold Char-Foot to look into the encroaching wilderness for a solution.
