The Worm King

Working on a zine of character designs by myself and accompanying stories by my bud Ollie. Here’s our first collaboration. 


Albrecht knew how to tell a story. For years the worm was always at the king’s ear, happily telling worm stories as worms are wont to do. The kingdom prospered and the worm grew large and joyful, filled equally with the king's praise and his treats.

On his 62nd birthday the king was nowhere to be found - he too was full of stories, but not so content. Behind him he left The Edict of the Worm, declaring his advisor the wiser of the two. To lead with stories and tend his throne until he returns, empty of stories and full of riches.
