Minneapolis-based comics micropublisher, 2D Cloud, announces their second release of 2013, Deep in the Woods, a double-feature from Noah Van Sciver and Nicholas Breutzman. Debuting at the Chicago Alternative Comics Expo June 15th & 16th and at finer independent bookstores and comic shops in June 2013.
Deep in the Woods by Nicholas Breutzman and Noah Van Sciver. 30 pages, 11”x17.5”, newsprint, $6.00.
Levitating disembodied cow heads, crack witches, mutant children, urban myths, half-remembered folklore: from the minds of Noah Van Sciver and Nic Breutzman comes Deep in the Woods, a double feature that pairs two of 2D Cloud’s favorite cartoonists in one oversized newsprint.
Robin, the dutiful daughter of a drunk runs away from her home, an evil step-family, deeper into the haunted woods. Who knows what she’ll find? Whiskey's solace? A floating cow head's kiss? Find out in Noah Van Sciver’s “The Cow’s Head”.
Heartbroken Sammy must convince her grandfather to crawl out of the well he’s holed himself up in. But first, it’s a walk through the woods with googly eyed mutant brothers and a stop at the crack witches hut for a ssssmoke. Take a toke with Nicholas Breutzman’s “The Mayfly”.
