So in case you didn't know, my name is Matthew Childers. I am a comic book writer and illustrator and I am creating a book called Moon Hunters. Now before we begin, I'm just about finished with the entirety of issue two of this book and am close to starting issue...
Art is being wrapped up on issue two. Here are the latest inked pages for your viewing pleasure.
Read The Issue One Preview
It’s the world building that is important here, and Childers has created a world that already seems bigger than this issue can contain. It’s a living, breathing thing that gives us the impression that, much like his protagonist, we’ve got a lot to learn about it. That’s one of the things that I like about this kind of tale. It lets us experience the world in the same way as the character. Even though they’ve lived in it for much longer than we have, they still have much to learn about “how things work.” This is all accomplished with a genuine subtlety: a stray comment here, a dodged assumption there – it’s really quite well done.Erik Cheski
ABOUT THE CREATOR
Hi. I’m Matthew Childers. I created Moon Hunters because I love fantasy and wanted to create a book that I thought you’d enjoy. I love to draw action, adventure, cool weird characters and monsters and creatures. So Moon Hunters is a dream come true. The main character of Lyria Two-Horns was modeled after my daughter, Lauren, who like Lyria is a bit of a spitfire. I also have an amazing wife named Christy and a son named Christopher, without whose support this book probably wouldn’t exist. In the past I have illustrated for Dynamite Comics, deCoubertin Books, and also illustrated books for an imprint I co-created called Adventures In Pulp.
