Across Thin Ice: Page 28 by screwbald Across Thin Ice: Page 28 by screwbald
Here is Page 28 from Across Thin Ice, first of the Nordguard graphic novels.

Across Thin Ice will be 100 or so pages of turn-of-the-20th-century arctic adventure, printed in full color from Sofawolf Press, a PG13 rating for bloody violence and will be released early next year.


At ComicCon San Diego this weekend? Check out Sofawolf Press's booth #1236 (in the Webcomic section) to pick up a short sneak-peek of Across Thin Ice!
Can't make it to SDCC and still want to see it? Don't worry! Go to the Nordguard Blog to get the .PDF!

Your book got delayed! When the guy at Comicon told me I almost cried..... Oh and it's San Diego, not Sand Diego, unless you did that purposefully.

I kinda thought it was pretty funny to see that the dog species would make transportation that would set themselves at labor over something to convenience themselves. Why do they not use a race that is less superior or maybe vehicles?

Well--it's set in 1903, so all-terrain vehicles are a long way off. In the Nordguard universe, mammals are "anthro," so while I suppose one species could enslave another to do it's menial labor, at this point in history in this part of the world, that just isn't happening.

And, a fun fact--early European explorers traveled the arctic pulling their own sledges (before adopting the native style of dogsled), which is what the Nordguard gear is based off of. Also, for an example closer to the correct time period, Scott and his crew reached the South Pole on foot in 1912, pulling their own supplies on sledges (after they ate the six ponies they brought.)

A few distributors overseas picked up my last comic and hopefully, more with pick up Across Thin Ice.
Sofawolf Press ships world wide, so you should be able to get it through them at the very least. :]

Oh really? In Italy too? I've already seen your last comic and it was so awesome, and it would be so awesome if I could buy that comic here. :3 Anyway, I didn't said that your style is beautiful and the details are so well defined.

About a German version--that's not really up to me, it would be up to the publisher. :]

Very cool page. I'm a little confused though. In your notes and drafts, you showed a very complicated harness system which was attached to the Nordguard members in order to pull the sled.

I can't seem to see the harness on any of the characters, except maybe Pi and who I'll assume is London. Does the harness go on under their actual clothing?
