Do you all know about Mildred? You should know about Mildred. Wanna know why? Because Mildred is out spotlight of the week. I have a soft spot in my heart for online comics. I think I found the internet first and online comics second.
I found Mildred through her character designs for the comic Agents of the Realm on tumblr. I’m sure you’ve seen some illustrations and character designs floating around on this blog. You all should start reading it asap! There’s already two chapters out! ( And I personally need to start catching up myself!)
Overall, here is the synopsis of the story from the Agents of the Realm tumblr blog; ” Shortly after beginning their first year of college at Silvermount University, Five young women discover that they’ve each been chosen to help protect not just our world, but a newly discovered sister dimension as well. As they venture forward through their college years their lives start to take on forms of their own, providing them with new opportunities to learn just how much power they have over them.
Agents of the Realm is a College years coming of age story, taking influence from a number of timeless Magical Girl themed stories”.
The author was kind enough to learn a warning on the subject matter of the story. “The story does contain some coarse language and (fantasy) violence. It also covers sensitive subject matter such as Domestic Abuse and violence, Alcoholism, Eating Disorders and Self harm”
What is awesome for me about this comic is that the lead, Nora, is a dark POC. She’s a bit of a loner (like myself) and a really cool character. Overall, this comic displays varying amounts of diversity and shows potential for vast subject matters in the comic. Plus, Mildred’s art style is pretty awesome and the way she colors the pages is breathtaking! Mildred studied Animation at Sheridan College and is currently pursuing a career in visual development. She is working on Agents of the Realm and while producing a graphic novel in the works called the “Catalyst ” which should be out in a few years.
