The long wait is over- today, Wednesday April 3rd, you can march into your friendly local comics shop and purchase your copy of my very first 32-page comic book, SNOW ANGEL!
David Chelsea is reading:
The Signal and the Noise: Why So Many Predictions Fail But Some Don’t
by Nate Silver
Here are some of the nice things the critics said about SNOW ANGEL when it was serialized in Dark Horse Presents:
“I’m not even sure I know how to properly talk about this comic. I probably can’t convey how and why I like it so much. This tale stands out from the rest because the art style, and narrative tone, is so drastically different. This is a child’s fantasy as thought by the child, or at least that is my very liberal interpretation. It is a picture book wrought to life through comic pages. It is the glee of imagination.
Snow Angel is about a girl who can do a snow angel and become a snow angel. She then does good deeds. It’s amazingly simple, almost too much so, and it’s so sweet you won’t need a snack for the rest of the day.”
-Ryan K Lindsay, The Weekly Crisis
“It’s a fun all-ages story with really enchanting and colourful artwork.”
-Edward Kaye, Hypergeek
“I love the almost wordless approach to storytelling he takes here; no dialogue is needed to carry the story to its final page, and it has such a mix of joy and wonder as we watch Snow Angel make her imprint in the snow and chase after a bicycle thief. It’s quite different from anything else I’ve seen from Chelsea, and I’m dying for the next chapter.”
-Greg McElhatton, Comic Book Resources
-Danny Djeljosevic, Comics Bulletin
David Chelsea’s “Snow Angel” is probably the most memorable contribution; it’s a largely silent, brightly coloured piece about a girl who literally turns into a snow angel, and it hovers somewhere in a grey area between dreamily peaceful and gentle superhero pastiche.
-Paul O’Brien, House To Astonish
Snow Angel, de David Chelsea, parece tener los elementos suficientes como para convertirse en un comic atractivo para todas las edades. Lamentablemente ese es un mercado cada vez más reducido en el medio, pero creo que habrá que estar pendientes del desarrollo de la historia y de su creador.
-Alberto Calvo, Comic Verso
And don’t forget THE KIDS MOVIE, a four-page, all-rhyming backup story, never seen anywhere before:
Just in case your local comics stop doesn’t carry SNOW ANGEL, you can order it online from the Things From Another World website.
And if you’re in Portland, you can see a one-man show of original art from SNOW ANGEL and THE KIDS MOVIE at Fotoeffect Gallery, opening tomorrow and remaining up through April.
