Launch Day – Boudi’s Bounty

Cover art by Alexis E. Fajardo, colors by Jose Mari Flores.

The newest Kid Beowulf short story, Boudi’s Bounty launches today, right here on the website!

After many adventures on the road, Beowulf and Grendel are finally going home. It’s a bittersweet goodbye when Beowulf says farewell to his traveling companion, friend, (and sweetheart?) Boudi. But Beowulf isn’t the only person whose sights are set on the charming girl – a band of bounty hunters are on her trail and the mysterious secret she carries!

If you’ve been a patron then you’ve seen this story take shape over the last year or so and now it’s finally ready to share. This story is exclusive to patreon backers, all you need to do is login to this website (in the top menu bar) and Episode 1 “Odes & Openings” (pages 1-5) will be available to read. New episodes will drop here on the website every Saturday.

If you are coming to Kid Beowulf for the first time, welcome! I’m glad you’re here. Take a look around the site and enjoy some free stories from the Archive. Now is the perfect time to join the fun on patreon! Being a patron gets you access to exclusive comics like Boudi’s Bounty, brand new monthly comics, behind-the-scenes process material, and it gives you a place to share your love of comics, adventure, mythology, and history – the core ingredients to any Kid Beowulf story!

Interlude

Pencil and Ink detail from Boudi’s Bounty.

Hey gang, I wanted you to know that I’m hard at work wrapping up production on the newest short story Boudi’s Bounty! While my colorist wraps up the coloring on the last half of the story, I’ve been lettering the first half. It’s coming along nicely and if all goes according to plan I’ll be ready to begin posting the story to patrons at the end of September. In the meantime, I’ll be taking a break from regular posts to focus on finishing the story. Thanks for your patience!
