The first four parts of the infinite scrolling sketch book adventure Eekeemoo and The Singing Stone by Willy MJ. In this the first Eekeemoo adventure, Eekeemoo is charged with the delivery of the last singing stone to the magical lake in the mountains. On his way he and his friend Yum Yum encounter all manner of creatures and monsters some of whom desire the magical stone for themselves. The Guardian Newspaper's review of Eekeemoo and the Singing Stone... " Another silent comic that’s a huge success is Eekeemoo, written and drawn by Will Morris-Julien... It's about a ninja eskimo and has gained around 350,000 readers in places like Japan, the Philippines and Poland... it’s drawn in long, vertical strips that you read by scrolling down, and it’s full of bold, meditative white-on-black art. " An excerpt from The Art Patient's review of Eekeemoo and The Singing Stone... " The vertical presentation is quite interesting with its symbolism and stark black and (off) whites. It creates a very unique sensation as you read through the episodes. On the Flight Forums, there is even a comment made that even though there is no snow where the commenter lives, they can feel the snow. That’s a pretty powerful effect on your audience. " ZHI Comic Reviews review of Eekeemoo and The Singing Stone... " I like the monotone and the simplistic storyboard aspect of the strip. Its wordless sense of wonder, set in an nameless world with no internal logic, works on a deeper emotional level than what looks at first like anodyne cuteness. It's almost as if a rebus puzzle has been posted online. The rounded quality of the linework looks deceptively cute but its based on alien geometry and an unknown world so it evens the strip out into something that delves into that tingle of adventure one feels that they are entranced by the unknown. The narrative doesn't make sense, it start in media res and allows the reader to work out what is happening in its particular slow-motion direction. This is a work that borders on the sublime with its lack of words and emphasis on the narrative. "
