    This is my brand new webcomic. It's with artist/creator Tiffany Ross of Alien Dice, Darius, Black Rose, and Abby's Agency fame.
    It's called CHEVALIER: The Queen's Mouseketeer

    In the magical realm of The Hither and Yon the noble kingdoms of The Land Ever After and The Far, Far Away are on the verge of war. A sinister plot is in play. The young Princess Faere of the land of The Shire, betrothed to Prince Charming of the Land Ever After, has been mysteriously kidnapped. And all the evidence of the foul deed points to The Far, Far Away.

    With his kingdom on the verge of war with Ever After, Chevalier the mouse (a blacksmith who fancies himself a dashing "mouseketeer") volunteers his services to the High Queen of the Far, Far Away to find the missing Princess and bring her back in time to stop the war. So Chevalier and his young nephew/squire Tom-Tom go off on a quest to save the fair Princess Faere and fulfill his destiny.

    Chevalier banner
    "CHEVALIER: The Queen's Mouseketeer" by writer/creator Darryl Hughes ("GAAK", "The Continentals") and artist Tiffany Ross ("Alien Dice", "Black Rose", "Darius"). It's a fabled fairy tale of enor-mouse proportions.

    Its a very good start! However, if I might make a suggestion: the very basic font of the text is a little off-putting. I think a more natural-looking, even hand-lettered look would suit it better - it just seems very artificial and blocky next to the fun, cartoony artwork. The writing itself is fine, just the lettering needs a touch of work.

    Tiffany and I are going to try and get Chevalier published as a children's book once it's finished. So the text she chose was more or less geared to be book reader friendly.

    Hope it doesn't affect your enjoyment of the comic.
