Six years ago I picked up a comic called Wormwood. It was crammed with compelling ideas and striking b&w imagery. This was my introduction to Christopher Webster. Trying to track down more of his work put me in contact with the man himself and we stayed in touch. When the Cherryvale project began, I knew Chris had to be involved. I showed his comics to Valerie and she immediately said, sign him up. Lucky for us he was into it. His graphic novel, Malus, is a real good intro to his work. It's intensely drawn and bursting with strange thoughts, go find a copy and just see for yourself. By comparison, his board for Cherryvale is oddly calm, but somehow as strong and involving as his comics. We like how you did that Chris.
