Spark-Tower Wilson’s Silent Song

Go read Spark-Tower Wilson’s Silent Song. The creators, Jeff Coleman and Stephen Greenwood-Hyde, describe it as “an outerspace blues fable”.

I think it’s absolutely lovely with a gorgeous color palette, and it’s cool that they’ve captured the texture of paper underneath the art even though they designed it to make “full use of the colour and light that’s an integral part of onscreen comics.” Here, for example is what a punch looks like from the receiving end. Amazing!

    Johanna, that was a great story. I love the paper texture effect and the colors too. However, I’m a little unclear on what makes this an “outspace” story. I must have missed a detail in reading it. I wish that all blues legends had such a happy ending to their stories. I’ll be interested in seeing the printed version.

  2. Johanna Says:

    I’m not sure there will be a printed version — certainly it would be expensive to do something as beautiful as what’s on the screen.

  3. Ed Sizemore Says:

    Johanna, as much as I like reading it on the computer. I still can’t rid myself of the desire to have it in book form.

  4. Johanna Says:

    Oh, I definitely agree — I’d buy a paper copy, too. I just didn’t want to give the impression that there would necessarily BE one.

    I should see if I can get more information from the creators on their plans.

    Thanks for the comments!

    Although it’s fairly subtle about it, “Spark Tower Wilson’s Silent Song” is set on the planet Minerva, which is fourth from the Sun in the alternate solar system of Progressions.

    There aren’t any plans to publish “Spark Tower Wilson” at the moment, although both Stephen and I would love to see it happen, perhaps on a paper that’s actually textured.

    Thanks again,

    Jeff, Thanks for clearing that up. I would definitely pick up a book copy of the story.
