This week’s featured webcomic is Plume by K. Lynn Smith.
What’s the Deal?: Plume is a story of the Old West, featuring a young girl named Vesper Grey and her supernatural, amulet bound companion, Corrick. Her father, an archeologist, leaves behind a legacy of powerful artifacts and mysterious enemies. Together, they strive to recover her father’s work in the wild and untamed West.
The Characters: Vesper and Corrick are a great duo. Even though the comic is fairly young in its plot, the author does an excellent job characterizing them and depicting their chemistry.
The Art: I am a HUGE fan of the visual art style in Plume. Smith has an masterful grasp of the power of subtle changes in posture and facial expression, as well as a dynamic sense of movement in comic frames. The overall color palette of the comic is fitting to the 1900’s-esqe Old West feel and the costume design is lovely.
Safe for Work?: Definitely.
