In 2012 Tevis Thompson (writer of Saving Zelda, previously) and David Hellman (illustrator of Braid) had a Kickstarter for a graphic novel. (Previously.) What had been assumed to be "a comic book about Zelda pedantry" has turned out to be something rather different. The graphic novel is now available for purchase on Fangamer, but 20 pages of it (one-sixth of it by length) can be seen as a free preview on the project website. Second Quest is about a young girl, Azalea, living in a city floating in the clouds, but burdened with dreams of the world below and visions of an age before.
The webcomic A Lesson is Learned but the Damage is Irreversible published a total of 41 strips over the course of two years – but each strip was a masterpiece, visually stunning and weirdly hilarious. It hasn't been updated since 2006 (author Dale Beran writes a new comic with similarly methodical updates), but recently its creators confirmed a new strip is on the way. Artist David Hellman (also known for his work on gorgeous video game Braid) has been sharing sketches of the new strip, and last week shared a video on Facebook showing the process of developing the new strip's layout.
