Elsa Kroese and Charlotte English’s Spindrift is a young comic, with fewer than 60 pages, but it has a place among the best webcomics.

Many webcomics don’t have the visual polish that can be found in the comics of traditional publishers, but Spindrift matches the best rendered print comics in presentation. The art pops off the page with excellent ink and colour. The characters are expressive, the landscapes magnificent and the many other details are attended to superbly. Of all the webcomics I have read, this is the one I consider to be the most beautiful.

The story carries the trappings of fantasy into a fresh territory that reminds me positively of Jo Clayton’s work. Character motivations seem complex and dialogue is compelling. The world building deployed for Spindrift seems extensive, and I’m looking forward to the role it will play in the unfolding narrative.
