About the Comic

Widdershins is a series of Victorian-era adventure stories, set in the fictional town of Widdershins, West Yorkshire- England's magical epicentre, home to bounty hunters, failed wizards, stage magicians, and more, besides. It's all written and drawn by Kate Ashwin.

Each chapter is a complete story, with a main thread running throughout. All of them are lighthearted, fun, and often comical, and I hope you enjoy them! Start reading here!

There's a new page every Tuesday and Friday, generally at 8am to noon London Time. 

Winner of the British Fantasy Award for Best Comic/Graphic Novel, 2019!
