About

Sideways Swords is a comedic fantasy webcomic following the journey of Westwen, a no-class 18-year-old peasant in the land of Søbata. Westwen is, for all intents and purposes, a grumpy prick, whose sole desires are getting laid and complaining about his run-down village (and of course those snobby, asshole elves up in the mountains). His best friend, Barcro, is a slightly dimwitted, well-meaning wizard’s apprentice. Westwen’s life soon becomes a mixbag of (mis)adventure and magic–not that he wants any part of it.

While Sideways Swords is a comedic fantasy piece, its prime intention is not to spoof any specific fantasy work, but is really just a funny homage and deconstruction of the ideas and tone of high fantasy. It also intends to tell a legitimate story behind all the lunacy. If it succeeds at anything is up to the readers, and the dumbass dude who wastes his time creating it.

    I’m following this ’cause it’s f*ckin’ hilarious.
    But it’d be nice if you can tell us a little bit of the background. At least of you as creator.
    Which experience do you have in fantasy? What kind of stories have you followed and sort of base on it? I mean, could you give us a little info about your nerdy-self?

      Glad you like the comic. 😀 I’ll certainly add some background info on myself to the About page, sure.
