What we’re reading during Book Week Scotland – part 4

Next up in our reading picks for Book Week Scotland is DCCS artist Catriona Laird.

“I’m always reading webcomic avasdemon.com when it updates. I discovered it a few years ago and backed the first kickstarter to make physical copies of volume 1. It deals with the concept of inner demons in a futuristic setting where a large part of the galaxy is ruled by a domineering godlike figure called Titan. Ava is plagued by a demon, Wrathia, who opposed Titan in the past but was ultimately defeated by him and bonded herself to Ava in order to continue living and seek revenge. The comic is enhanced by superb animations at key moments in the story with some amazing music to accompany it.”
