Butterfly Gate is told entirely in art: there are no captions, no word balloons. Read and Wildgoose manage all sorts of complexity and subtlety using just the art.” – Charles de Lint (The Borderlands Series, Ghostwood, Moonheart, Someplace To Be Flying)

A brother and sister leave our world and its rules behind, journeying into legend through the Butterfly Gate, where every step they take will come at a price.

Butterfly Gate follows the story of two siblings who, after throwing themselves headlong into another world, must face the brutal reality that lies beyond and find their place amidst an empire built after a revolution against the gods.

“It’s a story entirely without words. But the progress of the narrative is delightfully clear. It’s absolutely worth your time. It’s a comic you should make a point of seeking out and experiencing.” – Patrick Rothfuss (
Name of the Wind, Wise Man’s Fear, The Slow Regard of Silent Things)
