The first 27 full-color pages of The Thread That Binds, a fantasy comic about the healing power of connection, particularly in the midst of change and grief.
Amane Sol has just achieved her life’s dream—being accepted as a magical Bookbinding apprentice at the Eternal Library, which houses copies of all the world’s books—when her plans are altered by the death of her would-be mentor, Head Librarian June Suregrove. She is reassigned to a new mentor: Aeronwy Suregrove, June’s surviving spouse, who struggles to take on a new apprentice while consumed by grief. Aeronwy has spent a lifetime building the found family of librarians that Amane just joined, and it won’t be easy to help heal the wound left by June’s absence—especially when eir death may not have been an accident.
A story both joyful and sad, The Thread That Binds explores the many different ways we connect with one another in body, mind, and spirit. Featuring a fully queer cast, many asexual- and aromantic-spectrum main characters, and a culture where gender isn’t even a thing (as well as cultures where it is). <3
