is set in a witch kingdom where a witch’s strength correlates with the length of her hair—and those whose hair is too long are deemed too powerful and are eliminated. Nyneve, the heroine, is drafted into the kingdom’s Witch Guard, which was responsible for her father’s death, and she must choose between staying true to her ideals or joining the Guard. The webcomic, which was nominated for an Ignatz Award, is still ongoing and is updated every Tuesday and Thursday. The graphic novel is scheduled for a September release.
