ELBERT OR will be previewing pages of his upcoming project with J.Torres, LOLA: A GHOST STORY to be published by Oni Press in 2009.
Here's the first look at my next project for Oni Press, the graphic novel Lola: A Ghost Story. "Lola" is the Tagalog (Filipino) word for grandmother and this story is loosely based on some tall tales about my own maternal grandmother's childhood, some other family "history," as well as some folklore and mythology from the Philippines.
The artist of Lola is the multi-talented Elbert Or, whose blog can be found here. While you're there, make sure to check out his webcomics, which can be accessed from the right hand sidebar. The effectively minimalist and iconic Love and Heartbreak is probably my favourite one, but Camy and Me is also very charming and fun.
