What if there were a world of magic where your powers were based on your hair? That's what's happening in the engrossing new webcomic Witchy by Ariel Ries.
Witchy follows a young woman named Nyneve who grows up in a world called Hyalin, where magic powers are based on the length of your hair. After her father was killed for rebelling and letting his hair grow out too long, Nyneve is conscripted into the Witch Guard -- a army of magic users who were partly responsible for her father's death. Witchy is a decidedly non-Western approach to fantasy, pulling more from Asian story-forms and anime such as Hayao Miyazaki.
Ries is attending animation school in Denmark, and updates Witchy weekly with new pages. Here's a sample of what you can expect:
