FCBD Comic Spotlight: Nobrow's Hilda and the Black Hound
Aug 31, 2017
On Free Comic Book Day 2017, Nobrow released a new tale featuring HILDA, a young girl who helps the various mystical creatures surrounding her town. On Free Comic Book Day, Hilda and a troll magically switched places, leading Hilda on a journey to return home.
This week, on Wednesday, August 30, Hilda embraks on a new adventure in HILDA AND THE BLACK HOUND, where Hilda must help Tontu, a lost house spirit, after they discover something ransaking the hidden passages between realities.
"I wanted a character who was very positive and who would get caught up in adventures as a result of her own curiosity, empathy or sense of responsibility," creator Luke Pearson told The Comics Journal in an interview. "The kind of character who has an adventure because she really wants to, not because she’s forced into it."
HILDA AND THE BLACK HOUND is available in stores on Wednesday, August 30--make sure you stop by your local comic shop to pick up your copy before they run out!
