Two from Sarah Glidden
Sarah Glidden’s Small Noises #2 is a journal comic stuffed with stories and dreams. She rents The Wicker Man and predictably gets creeped out. The next day she sees the freaky animal masks from the movie on random people in the street. She drinks so much one night that she wakes up exclaiming, “I think I drank so much last night that I skipped my hangover!” “You’re probably just still drunk,” answers a friend.

Sarah plays fast and loose with the art. It’s a journal comic, so she simply draws to suit her mood. Some of the pages are sketched and devoid of background, while other others are more carefully lined and shaded.

Small Noises is 40 pages.

Sarah’s The Reader is a twelve page fantasy. She begins by waking in a boat, no clue where she is and how she got there. She manages to row to the shore of a seaside shipping town. As she wanders the streets, she recognizes signs and names of buildings. She’s in a fictional town from a recently read book. Soon she stumbles into characters from the book.
The art is a little tighter here, but still loose. It kind of reminds you of Gabrielle Bell’s mini-comics.

Contact Sarah at for prices and availability. I also found a blog of Sarah's that features a lot of her art and comic pages.
