sketches-04Soldier Boy Comics

When a young soldier helps a witch recover a magic tinderbox, he uses it to become the richest man in town. Trouble follows. Soon he makes a choice that lands him in hot water with the King and Queen. Will his riches and popularity be enough to save him from a grizzly end?

Soldier Boy and the Big-Eyed Dogs is a retelling of an old fairy tale called “The Tinderbox” by Hans Christian Andersen. It’s an all-ages comic strip inspired by Monty Python, those weird, unmodern fairy tales of yore and the Golden Age of Hollywood cartoons.

Look for new Soldier Boy comics every Tuesday and Thursday.
