Quirk's Quest: Into the Outlands by Robert Christie


Quirk's Quest: Into the Outlands by Robert Christie

Captain Quenterindy Quirk and his company of seafaring explorers are the strangest adventurers you've ever seen! This furry and feathered crew embarks on a dangerous quest to chart the unexplored islands of Crutonia, but their expedition is cut short when their ship is attacked by three hungry giants. The explorers take refuge on an uncharted island, but the giants may be the least of their problems. The island is home to a powerful witch - the strange, one-eyed Hukka - and it's not clear if she is friend or foe.

About the Author

Growing up on Long Island, Robert Christie spent most of his waking hours obsessively drawing anything and everything, except cars. While taking cover from a lunchroom food fight, he met Deborah Lang, and shortly thereafter they conspired to create Crutonia. Ever since, they have been writing stories set in their quirky, made-up world. After earning his BFA in St. Louis, he moved to Jersey City, where he makes his living as an illustrator, painter, and prop maker for major motion pictures, Broadway, and fashion photo shoots. He has been writing and further developing Crutonia with Deborah for more than three decades, and Into the Outlands is their first published graphic novel.Deborah Lang is a cartoonist, scientific illustrator, and molecular biologist. She was born in New York City but eventually moved to Long Island purely to meet up with Rob Christie to create Crutonia. Her earliest published drawings include advertisements in Pennysaver and monthly comic strips in her college newspaper. She has published illustrations and papers in international science journals. Deborah spent many years in Philadelphia during college and grad school and presently lives in Chicago.
