Into the Wild

Read By Chance or Providence Online Free - Collecting stories by Becky Cloonan:

1. Wolves
As a lone hunter tracks an elusive beast through the forest, he reflects on his life and past love through a series of flashbacks, bringing the story to a climax that is as romantic as it is savage. This powerful short story begs for multiple read-throughs, never giving concrete answers, but (like the best enigmatic endings) leaves your own conclusions satisfying.

2. The Mire
On the eve of a great battle, a humble squire is tasked with delivering a letter to a seemingly abandoned castle at the heart of an ill-famed swamp. Met with mysterious apparitions on the way, he slowly unveils the truth behind his journey as his past is re-written over the course of the story.

3. Demeter
A fisherman's wife tends the garden and animals while her husband is at sea, but secrets buried under the waves begin to bubble to the surface revealing a secret treachery and forgotten truth. The third and final book in a trilogy of critically acclaimed stand-alone stories by award winning creator Becky Cloonan.

Si je pouvais mettre plus de 5 étoiles, je le ferais avec plaisir. Définitivement ma BD favorite de cette année 2017. Un style de dessin en noir et blanc absolument sublime, tout en expressions et en lignes, et des histoires intemporelles.

By Chance or Providence is a mainstream publication of three zines that Cloonan previously produced. They are dark and horrifying fantasies, beautifully illustrated with dark and moody panels. My only beef is that the original zine publications had slightly different colours and a bit more nuance...

I had no expectations really, but I've been reading so much sword and sourcery I think I was expecting that (which is silly). Horror isn't really my thing, but these seem like reasonably standard fantastic horror, but polished enough. The art though. OH MY FUCKING GOD THE ART. The concepts pages ar...

A fine collection of 3 short stories by cartoonist Becky Cloonan. Using the setting and motifs of a dark, medieval fantasy world, each story examines the themes of desire, regret, loss, and the consequences when all three become entangled. Cloonan's writing is spare but evocative, and her brushwo...
