Having impressed many with his work on the likes of Sparks and the Fallen Star, The Mind of James Svengal, and Hellbound Media’s Mandy the Monster Hunter, Lyndon White has now launched a crowdfunding campaign for his next project, Candles.
A full-colour, self-contained fantasy graphic novel about a young girl who sets out to steal magic from an evil witch in order to try and save her dying village, Candles looks all kinds of impressive from what we’ve seen so far.
Lyndon has already established an otherworldly quality to so much of his work to date, and Candles again seems to capture that essence perfectly. You can see for yourself by clicking on the below images for a closer look at some of the early pages of this intriguing tale:
The official word on Candles reads:
Generation after generation, people are taught one thing: never use magic. The evil Witch has cast a plague known as Dark-bark over the land and, one by one, infected villagers are lured into the enchanted forest never to be seen again. As a last resort to save her family, Grace embarks on a quest to steal the Witch’s magic and use it to save her dying village.
Meanwhile, Idris, a flamboyant sorcerer, and his talented apprentice Ava, are outcasted from their town and begin to track the source of the Dark-bark. Wolves howl at the night sky and candles begin to glow. The Witch must be stopped at all costs. However, everything is not as it seems.
Candles is a full colour fantasy graphic novel, written and illustrated by Lyndon White.
