Daughter of the Wrath of the Sun by KnitWithCharm utilizes an interesting art style: crochet.
A war between humans and the Shinri (centaurs, dragons, and other beasts/beings) ends in freedom for the former. About a century later, humans are still experiencing racism from those powerful beings. Ketar, a Shinri hunter, possesses extraordinary abilities that make him the best protector. However, the origin of his powers remains a mystery. One day, his half-brother, Ramiro, appears on his doorstep, leading to reflections on relationships and family secrets.
KnitWithCharm tells a compelling fantasy story using a style I haven’t seen before: crochet. And the creator does this quite well. The effort and level of detail in this webcomic fascinate and impress me. Even the facial expressions, done digitally, are subtle. The story balances action and humor, taking its time to develop the plot and characters. Scenes like the Creation Day event and Ramiro shadowing Ketar’s job add dimension to the story. From Shinri to Ketar’s backstory, the creator has enough to create a complex world.
Besides worldbuilding, Daughter of the Wrath of the Sun navigates interpersonal relationships. The connections between each character, including Ketar and his friend Marigold, naturally evolve through various situations. Ketar grapples with the revelation of having a half brother, which intensifies when he finally meets his birth mother.
This webcomic is currently on hiatus, but the story so far packs in enough emotional moments and excellent character dynamics to get you anticipating future episodes.
