Marian Churchland’s blog goblins get a print collection in September

Churchland’s delightful creations jump from the web to print in ‘The Hchom Book’ from Image Comics.

While she’s probably better known for comics like Beast, Elephantmen and her various contributions to the 8HOUSE shared universe, my favorite Marian Churchland work has always been her blog. For years she’s posted images of her own want lists, Dragon Age fan art, and these cool little goblins and the world she envisions they live in. Like this guy:

I’ve always wondered if they’d ever make the jump from the web to print, and this fall they will, when Image Comics publishes The Hchom Book.

“I began the blog [Hchom.com] with no particular aim: I wanted to post pictures of bread, and vent my material wants, and that was about it. Over time, however, it cohered into something so much more introspective, and even—to my ongoing astonishment and gratitude—into something that other people connected with on a personal level,” said Churchland. “I am so pleased, and so proud, to bring this work to print.”

The book comes out in September. In the meantime, her latest blog post — a very personal webcomic — can be found here.
