Jules Faulkner

About the Comic:
Knight & Dave
http://www.knightanddave.com
Opposites don’t attract so much as follows each other around being contrary in the fairy-tale kingdom of Weetharyeht.
Join in the adventures of the gallant, if a little stuffy, Sir Iris and his reluctant sidekick, a goat called Dave (who sometimes needs a little help to get by in a world that finds him delicious).
Whether they’re fleeing pirates, slaying dragons or bribing a kraken at least they have each other… which is probably what got them into that mess in the first place.
About Artist:
According to her friends, “Jules barbecues hella good.”
Her first online comic, Promises Promises ran for six years and produced two volumes in print, Starting Tomorrow and Starting Monday.

Knight & Dave is a long(er) form story, but you’re page size is horizantal. What lead you to that decision? Joel
