Maelstrom the Green Dwarf #1, 1982

Follows Maelstrom the Dwarf of Bramthorn.

This comic follows the adventures of Maelstrom and Theow. Issue 2 was completed soon after #1, but never saw publication (due to financial considerations). Their adventures continued in the pages of Reverie, from issues #4 to #7 (when it ceased), though that story is actually a prequel to Maelstrom #1.

Originally it was conceived as a loooong series, but later whittled down to one basic, six issue story arc. Most of the issues are close to completion, other than #6. If interest is generated, I'd consider publishing/republishing it as a limited run (renumbered) six issue series, or maybe as two graphic novels. There are technical problems though, as I used a lot of Letratone (even on reworking the early artwork), and that's a problem for digital reproduction! Also, I feel it is now very dated in many respects. For now, I have many other projects to work on...
