I had the pleasure of speaking with artist and writer of the series Stray Sod, Chelsea Crutchley. She just recently released book five, and talked to me about the series at the 2018 Panel One Comic Creator Festival.

The series is about a teenager searching for her older sister who disappears on a trip to Ireland, and she must go into the fairyland and navigate the rules there, to find her sister. The art in this series is absolutely fantastic. Quite frankly, you’ll find yourself immersed in this world that Crutchley has put together.
