‘Korgi’ Is Back: A Preview and a Look at the Cover Process

As Lori noted on Friday, Christian Slade has released a new volume of Korgi, his wordless tale of a dog meeting fantastical creatures. Korgi, Book 4: The Problem with Potions will be out on October 18 in comic shops and November 1 in bookstores, and we’re happy to present not only a preview but an exclusive look at how Slade created the cover of this volume.

This is Book 4 of Korgi; the last volume came out five years ago (here’s our preview of that book), so it’s been a long wait for Korgi fans. If you’re new to the book, check out Christian Slade’s Korgi page.

Here’s a look at the cover process:
