What is Little North Star?
Little North Star is the fantasy-comic-rock-opera created by DIY Seattle band, Whelp. It was originally published serially online, between December 2013 and June 2014. Print copies of the comic are now available for online purchase through Forbidden Seabass Records.
How does this work?
Motion in a comic is created in the reader’s imagination. It is an illusion which takes place between static panels. By pairing frozen images with fluid moving music, we are asking a question, “What is happening that you don’t see?” We can’t provide the answer to this question. To find it, you’ll have to look inside yourself. Trust your heart and your imagination. We believe that you’ll find something good.
Seems like y’all work real hard. Any way I can help?
If you want to show your appreciation, all we ask is that you please tell your friends about Little North Star, and like the Whelp Facebook page. This page will provide updates so you can be in the know about Whelp’s live performances (including a West Coast tour summer 2014), and about the release of the printed Little North Star comic.
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, or would like more information, please feel free to contact us.
