Namesake - The Journey Begins by secondlina Namesake - The Journey Begins by secondlina

Namesake is a webcomic best described as a sort of a fairy tale version of Quantum Leap. Namesakes are people who have the power to travel to another world, and that power is passed down through the name. Alices go to Wonderland, Wendies go to Neverland, etc. Emma Crewe discovers she is a Namesake during a library fire and lands in Oz. The Ozites aren’t surprise to see her, but they are surprised she isn’t a Dorothy. Her accidental portal-hopping kicks off the plot; a story full of adventure, fairy tale worlds and 100 year old magical conspiracies. 

I did this drawing this week to celebrate the website redesign. We put it at the beginning of the archive, as a welcome mat to new readers. It’s a really badass welcome mat. 

Prints of this illustration are available at our store.

This reminds me a bit of the cartoon version of the hobbit from 1977

This is a pretty crazy and wonderful "welcome to Namesake" illustration for new (and old) viewers. Lovely lines and composition with a nice semi-muted colour palette. Pretty awesome.

I was hoping that you would post this! Beautiful, with interesting new details, like Venom's arrow. I like Warrick's Khalo style heart! I look forward to every episode! 

(By the way, you have a typo at the beginning of the last sentence, "He" should be "Her").

I'd really like to translate Namesake since I'm French Canadian. But Who knows when I might have the time :( It's definitely going to happen at some point tho.
