I first got in touch with Earthsong when I was looking a website reviewing comic books, Earthsong selling Volume I in standard publication. The review mentioned it was an online graphic novel, so I went to give it a look. It caught me almost intantly thanks to some truly gorgeous artwork. And I haven't stopped loving it since. Now to be sure, the overall plot hasn't been quick by any standards. Part of the reason for that is the author/artist decided to redo all of the artwork and dialogue of Volume I and much of II. This delay has reduced the pace of the plot to a snail's pace, especially since a new page only updates every Monday.
All in all, I recommend reading this webcomic. You will see some of the best artwork anywhere, and a unique plot, which I will not reveil in order to entice you to look it over. Now go and read it.
