The Wormworld Saga begins on 25th December

This year you can look forward to an additional Christmas present! On 25th December I'm going to launch the brand new Wormworld Saga website and the first chapter of the Wormworld Saga Online Graphic Novel which is titled "The Last Day Of School". I have finished the online formatting of the graphic novel and now I only have to prepare the rest of the content of the website. Here is a preview for those who are curious:

As you can see, I'm going for a compact layout. The whole startpage fits onto an iPad screen which I currently consider to be the best hardware to enjoy the Wormworld Saga Online Graphic Novel. Of course you will be able to read it on any other hardware, too. Together with the Wormworld Saga website I'm going to launch a Facebook fanpage and I'll update my Deviantart gallery with panel artwork for those who want to enjoy the artwork without word ballons. This blog will remain to be the centre of all news about the Wormworld Saga and the most direct way for you to give me your feedback.

In January I'm going to open up the prints shop. From that point on the Wormworld Saga themed artwork that is currently on sale on will be sold exclusively on the new website. Ordering the prints will be much easier in the new shop and there will be many new artworks at various price points available.

You may wonder why I chose to launch the Wormworld Saga Online Graphic Novel on a date on which most people will be offline. Most internet creators are on hiatus over the holidays and would tell you that it's not worth the effort because nobody watches anyway. I considered to hurry up and launch the website before everybody disappears into the holidays. I also considered to delay the launch and start in January when everybody is back at work and hungry for new content. But ultimately I realized that it just would be nice to launch on Christmas. I imagine that everyone who learns about the launch will be happy to have this little additional Christmas treat. And when if not during the holidays might you find some spare time to sit down, relax and dive into a story? Hopefully in a cosy place with some cookies and a hot cup of tea.


  1. Awesome!
    Good luck with everything, i'm looking foward to redaing the Wormworld Saga!

  2. der letzte absatz brachte mich zum lachen. freu mich drauf, sieht jetzt schon so wunderbar farbenfroh aus!

  3. Thats amazing! I didnt spected to be that soon! I'm really happy about it!, looking foward to start reading it, absolutely love your style and your colour choices!

  4. wow, I can't wait for the release!!

    Ich bin sehr gespannt, wie schnell sich das ganze auch außerhalb der Grafikcommunities verbreiten wird. Das Thema der Story ist ja im Grunde prädesteniert für eine breite Popularität.
    Viel Erfolg!

  5. Great timing Daniel!
    Something worth to read and look while I've really got time for it.
    Looking forward to the release.
    Will it help, if I open some more doors in the calendar?

    Go on!

  6. It must be a great Feeling to finish such a hudge Project. Beziehungsweise the first Chapter. I'm looking forward to see it completely!

    eh... yeah!

  7. WOW! I am soo excited!
    This is going to be an amazing Christmas present!
    I got chills seeing the page!!
    I am, and im sure i can speak for the rest of the people following your blog, anxiously and excitedly awaiting the launch. I can promise you that I will sneak away from the gifts and family to read the first chapter!
    Looks incredible! Very excited!

  8. Your guys (and gals!) are so great! I'm really looking forward to the launch and knowing that there will be people enjoying the first chapter on Christmas makes for a very nice present in itself.

  9. I'm looking forward to get up in the early morning of the 26th to fill my brand new cup with tea and put and my wool socks to enjoy the wormworld saga. I'm looking forward to it like a kid!

  10. Looks amazing Daniel. May I suggest you add a reddit button as well as facebook? I think the fine people on reddit will really appreciate your work.


  11. Tom,

    thats a very good point. I think I will add several social network buttons (Facebook Like Button, Stumble Upon...) but I guess it might make more sense to put them directly beneath the comic page. When the reader has just finished the first chapter he might be the most inclined to share his experience with others.

  12. Great news, Daniel, congratulations!
    I'm really curious about the story that has driven you for so many years and will now - finally - see the light of day. And of course, i'm also looking forward to all the artwork you produced :)

    I wish you success.

  13. Dear Daniel,

    that is so great! Finally you are making your dream come true!

    Good luck on your next step to getting closer to... well, you know our idols like Oz, Lucas, Henson. Creating something and having the creative control over it, is a wonderful thing.

    Hope to see you soon

    Best regards to C as well.


  14. when will you release the game? ;)

  15. Directed here by Sarah Ellerton of The Phoenix Requiem.

    Gorgeous art work, but I felt that the dialogue was stiff in some places and needed work to sound more colloquial.

    Other than that, this looks like the beginning of an exciting journey! I loved the lighting and the detail; I can't even begin to imagine the work that must have gone into this!

  16. Found you through Phoenix Requiem as well. Can't wait to buy a print :)

  17. Congratulations!

    Can't wait to meet you again to talk about all this! :)
