Stolen Forest is a Pretty Cool Webcomic by Rian Grey Sygh / riansygh! It updates once a week on Wednesdays.
Hidden away in the forest, the land of Stolen has managed a peaceful and prosperous life under the teachings of the local Idols. Here three friends live and help their community; the enthusiastic and rash Lief, the fleet-footed Tig, and the large yet soft-spoken and intelligent Diedier. They help gather food to sell at the market, and generally live a good life doing so.
But when a mysterious blast hits the forest, rot and plague begin affecting the land down to the food they need to survive. Worse yet, the Idols seem unable to do anything about it. With the amount of territory they can harvest growing smaller and being thoroughly picked over, the trio hatch a plan to explore the until-now uncharted mountains. But even if they can make it past the winds and wards guarding the area, who knows what secrets - and dangers - they will find?
At only two chapters in I can’t say much as to the story’s plot beyond that it’s an intriguing start, but wow is this comic pretty. Panels flow into one another to really keep pulling the eye along, the colours are bright without being overbearing, and the character designs and expressions are a lot of fun! And even with what little we’ve seen, the worldbuilding hints at larger conflicts to come both regarding the blight and within Stolen itself.
Stolen Forest has the makings of being a really great adventure… wait, scratch that. It’s already a great adventure, and can only get better from here. I’m sincerely excited to see what happens next, and will definitely recommend it as a read either right away or once the comic gets a more sizable archive!
Stolen Forest contains violence and swearing, and is recommended for teens and up.
Thanks to the anon who suggested this comic!
