The Firelight Isle is an ongoing web and print comic (or physidigicomic if you like) – a tale of coming of age, self-identity and cultural discovery, set in a fantastical civilisation gripped by a mysterious religion. The story follows the lives of Sen and Anlil, two childhood friends about to be parted as they undergo the trials of adulthood, and take their first steps on a journey with an uncertain ending!

About The Author
The Firelight Isle is written and drawn by Paul Duffield, a comic creator, illustrator, designer and animator from the mystical land of Oxford, UK. He doesn’t do much dreaming in spires, but he does quite a bit of dreaming in his flat, which he shares with his partner and fellow comic creator, Kate Brown. The dreams mostly consist of a huge and vibrant UK creative industry in which comics have claimed their rightful place, right at the heart of storytelling!
