NONPLAYER is back and Juliette’s excited!

Nonplayer1Fantastic Comics readers, I’m having a lot of feelings about NONPLAYER being back!

Do you all remember NONPLAYER #1? It’s a gorgeous scifi and fantasy comic written and illustrated by Nate Simpson, published by Image Comics. The first issue came out in 2011 and everyone went nuts for it. Simpson won an Eisner, it was a critical hit, and I remember we were all really excited. The different levels of world building alone made it utterly unique and worth the price of admission.

It is still one of the best and most beautiful single issues of a comic I have ever read! Continue reading
