Kelpie page 1 by ~porcelianDoll sets the scene and mood for this 12 page eerie, unusual and interesting story. ( Suggested by Glasperlenspielerin and Featured by kangel )

Oh man, this series. I remember reading this a few years ago, it was my introduction to what Kelipies were. Thank you for this amazing comic, and introducing me to this mythical monster.

It's his house/studio. the horses in the front are statues. He kept building the same thing over and over to try to understand what happened to him.

I came across this on funnyjunk.com and the poster included a link back here. Needless to say, this is a impressive peice of art and a respectful nod to a mythological beast.

Yeah, this has traveled far and wide in the ... shit, 4 years since I posted it. I'm happy that mythology fans seem to like it best though.

Thank you. :)

This comic is... ugh. The mixture of emotions you've blended in with this is astounding! Marvelous! Fantastic, I'd dare say if I wanted to sound like Doctor Who. 

So much so I'd like to request if I could share this over more mainstream media like Facebook, Twitter, and possibly Tumblr as well. This definitely deserves recognition. Of course, I'd link back here to you and declare I wasn't the artist but I believe that'd go without saying.

Sure. It's already on tumblr, though not mine. Provided there's a link back here there's never a problem.

I've loved this comic ever since I first saw it in 2012 and I always come back to it! I love a good kelpie story , and I love how it doesn't even use dialogue yet the story is so clear and the art is fantastic!
