Bird Boy is a fantasy webcomic set in a world where a great hero went into a forest and freed the light that the villain had trapped, and was trapped himself.
Bali, a small boy with a big bird-beak headdress, sets out hunting on his own after his elders have put off teaching him to next year. Led by a bird he stumbles on a forest where it is summer, and from there, to stranger things.
It can be read at http://bird-boy.com/. (The full archived Volumes I and II are now back on line.)
This work contains examples of:
- Follow the White Rabbit: Bali follows a bird.
- Light Is Good: The hero, the sword... and Bali is later told that the Rook Men hate the light.
- Literal Cliff Hanger: The Rook-Men corner Bali on a narrow precipice.
- Magical Land: It's winter outside. Only could be magic to have it summer inside.
- Webcomic Print Collection: Volumes I and II were published in 2016. Possibly for contractual reasons, the pages in these collections were withdrawn from the website, but have since been restored.
