A comic series on which I am currently working.
This story takes many elements from the superhero and magical girls genres, mixed according to my taste. Despite its title, it is not that spooky and has an overall light-hearted tone.
The following chapters tell the adventures of Jana, an unlikely superhero who defends Prague and surroundings from a number of various threats and bizarre villains.
SEASON 1 - Zmrazené kytice (Frozen Bouquets)
After saving a magic pig, Jana's dream to help people becomes true as she turns into a superhero.
Together with other bizarre heroes and vigilantes, she begins to defend the city of Prague from various threats, including the sudden appearance of dangerous creatures from the local folklore.
What is really behind the supernatural activities that have recently started affecting the citizens' life?
This first arc of the comic was essentially me jumping head first into writing and illustrating the story, which could be also seen as learning on the go.
Apart from the original artwork being a bit too sketchy at times, the drawings were not always well visible having been done only with pencils, and the dialogues needed to be brushed up, especially for characters that I had not yet entirely figured out in terms of writing - this without even counting that leitmotiv that is my hideous handwriting, which sometimes makes the reading process closer to decypher ancient glyphs.
Therefore, I am currently in the process of polishing a little bit the panels of those original chapters, so that they are easier to read and more consistent with the general look that the comic has from the beginning of season 2 in terms of inking, page layout, etc., but without making any major changes to the artwork or the story itself, as it is natural that I have evolved as an artist throughout the years, since starting with this project in the spring of 2016.
But until the brushed up chapters are ready, below is a short illustrated summary of this part of the story, so that readers can catch up before moving to the following arc Ducks from Outer Space.
