Webcomic The Only Living Boy by David Gallaher and Steve Ellis has gained a lot of attention since it was successfully launched as a Kickstarter, with a bunch of Harvey Award nominees, including Best Webcomic. It's also the #1 downloaded book on Noisetrade, a portal for ebook and audiobook sales. It's story of 12-year old Erik Farrell, a runaway boy who finds himself in a strange world without his memory or friends. Ellis's lush artwork uses the palette of the web to its full extent, and Gallaher's story presents a classic tale of fantasy exploration.
In this preview of the newest episode, Erik stumbles onto a map of his world, but more mysteries unfold with a missing moon and the legend of the Dreaded Lord Baalikar. And is Erik really the only living boy left in the world?
The Only Living Boy updates every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Gallaher and Ellis are represented by the Hill Nadell literary agency.
