Reviews - What do customers think about Inverloch Vol 1 (Inverloch)?
Novelty item Oct 7, 2007
It seems kind of strange to buy something that's freely available online. I bought it as something of a souvenir. The production is nice. The bonus materials are nothing special.
Pure Unrated Awesome Jan 10, 2007
I first read the comics online and fell in love with them in no time, after reading them for a few months I decided to check out the rest of the site coming across the order page and was more then happy to see that two volumes of this very awesome comic were available. I ordered both, they quickly came and were read even quicker.
A great read, deals with many different situations like predjudice and racism with that good ole fantasy twist.
Huge recommend to everyone!

Well worth the money, it's great to have such a high quality book available for when I want to look back on the comic without going online.
A Truly Exemplary Work Aug 19, 2006
Before I came across Inverloch online, I had regarded webcomics as being forgettable, dime-a-dozen newspaper strips without the paper (and a vast majority of them are just that). However, Sarah Ellerton's amazing accomplishment opened my eyes to the fantastic talent that the internet, as an artisitic medium, can showcase.
Simply put, Inverloch (both as a whole and in the form presented in Volume One) is a graphic novel that any American or Japanese comic company would be proud to publish. And yet, its not authored by a committee of experienced writters, illustrated by a master inkist, or funded by a major company. Instead, it is the work of a single, dedicated woman.
The most striking thing about the work is the sheer quality of the art on every page. Backgrounds are intricate and brilliantly textured. Characters, human, elf, and goat-dog da'kor alike, are sharp and detailed from every perspective. The mood of each chapter is expretly enhanced by pacing, lighting, and angle, be it the soft simplicity of a peaceful da'kor village, the uncertain dimness of a overgrown forest, or the dreary hostility of a distant human town.
Additionally, Inverloch's story, though relatively simple (or so it seems), captures and modifies well the fantasy style of Tolkien and other great authors, creating a believably unbelievable world that begs for further investigation. The plot is easy to follow without being overly simplistic, and is well supported by a full cast of characters, many of whom remain unintroduced by the conclusion of this first volume. As such, this book does feel somewhat imcomplete, but it is nonetheless worthy of purchase by anyone with even a passing interest in fantasy; after all, even the greatest of epics must be begun somewhere.
This is what comics CAN be Jul 15, 2006
I had Inverloch bookmarked for weeks before I finally decided to start from the beginning. My husband had been reading it for a while, and it finally drew me in as soon as I looked at the first page.
The artwork is top notch, which is something that can't be said of some comics when they're starting out. The story is evolving, but you can tell that Ellerton actually PLANNED the story, at least an outline, before she started. Too often webcomics seem like they have an idea, but no set plot to speak of. I'm very happy this isn't the case here, because it makes the storytelling so much tighter and more admirable.
I work at a bookstore, and literally the second this came out of the box with our shipment, I grabbed the stack to put one on hold for myself and the rest on a display as my staff pick. I can't say enough good things about it.
Aside from just the story: the print quality is great, the size is comfortable. It's just a really well-rounded publication.
