Summary: Otherworldly is the story of five twenty-somethings who’ve recently discovered they’re not human; they’re actually changelings, magical babies swapped for human ones, and at first they don’t even know what kind of Fair Folk (used as the general term for magical being here) they might be. While they’re helped along the way by two friendly fairy private detectives, they also start to run afoul of some shady characters in both the human world and the magical Otherworld, as they attempt to balance their lives in both and figure out who they are, not just what.

Review: As the creator of this comic, I don’t think I can offer a completely unbiased review, but I really do think this comic offers a reading experience that can appeal to all kinds of fantasy fans. LGBT+ identities aren’t the main focus at the moment, but several characters’ identities and queer relationships will be important as the story goes on. I’m trying to do something unique with all the mythological and fantastic elements I have at my disposal through an approach of equal parts comedy, action, and some quieter drama.

Happy reading!
