Basewood is a graphic novel with a classic amnesia plot set in a fantastical forest. There is a young man trying to discover more about his mysterious past, an old hermit who lives in a treehouse with his loyal dog, a young woman who fights for what she believes in and a giant wolf-dragon who shows up in each of the five chapters of Basewood. It is a story of adventure, love, loss, friendship and growth.
This second edition of Basewood reincorporates the covers, introductions, letters columns and thank you pages from its initial serialization in Alec Longstreth's long-running minicomic, Phase 7. There are also 16 new pages of Basewood "fan art" drawings by various cartoonists.
