Adventure is brewing in Northern Canada!
When a renowned researcher goes missing in the Northern wilds, it's up to an only partially qualified duo to find him. Join a penniless prospector and a quirky cartographer as they explore uncharted territory and confront a mysterious cryptid in FLANN! - The Petrified Forest.
"The Petrified Forest" is the first volume in a purely Northern adventure, inspired by the story that gave Flin Flon, Manitoba its memorable name. It's 100 pages of full-colour fun!

Praise for FLANN!
I really enjoyed your first instalment. And your artwork is wonderful! I love the steampunk feel. So.....I have to ask...When will you have the second one ready, because I'm ready to read it!

I started reading Flann and I love it! Seriously. This is such good stuff. So funny and poetic and beautiful!

One part manga, one part steampunk, one part awesome! FLANN! is a truly original and creative reimagining of Flin Flon's namesake story, "The Sunless City." It's got all the cool sci-fi bits without the patriarchal colonialist overtones, and it's actually fun to read! I can hardly wait for Volume 2.

I was so excited to receive my copy today! The first few pages gave me chills it was so good. [...] I could tell by her work that we share a love of the north as her enthusiasm bursts through the pages. FLANN pays tribute to our roots like nothing I've ever experienced, in print or otherwise. I don't want to give anything away — you have to read it for yourself. Definitely worth picking up a copy.

I’ve always loved telling stories and drawing pictures [...] it just made sense to put those two passions together.
