Review: Welderkin #1

Some thoughts on the first issue of Welderkin from Comicker Digital

WELDERKIN Chapter 1

by Jordan Alsaqa & Joni Miller

Burtonwood is full of strange occurrences: intense fires, odd metallic structures, and a long history of women going missing. When Jessica moves to the small town, she begins to investigate the myths about the demonic creatures allegedly behind it all. Before she knows it, though, the fires begin to close in, and the clanging of hammers grows louder…
Jessica and Evan move into their new home, unaware of the tragedy that occurred there five years earlier. As Jessica explores her new surroundings, she begins to learn about the mysterious creatures that call the forest home.
That is a really intense introduction to the story. 27 pages and we get a really large chunk of what to expect from this series! We get introduced to Jessica and Evan (after a brief, but creepy flashback) and they are soon thrust into the world of the Welderkin! I really like the story telling in this issue, we get some mythology, linked in with strange figures and goings on in the forest. They could be normal forest fires?
Nope!
I really like the art style- it goes really well with the storytelling and the approach of the whole comic. Think Lumberjanes.
This looks like we are going to get more mysteries before the end, some I’m looking forward to reading more of this one!
Recommended for those who like Lumberjanes or Gotham Academy!
