Select praise for PROXIMA CENTAURI:
“Even though he has a shelf of awards by now, Dalrymple still seems to me to be under-read and low-profile in the medium. He’s one of those creators people should be talking about every day.” —Warren Ellis (CEMETERY BEACH, INJECTION, TREES)
“PROXIMA CENTAURI is free-form fun mixed with mind-bending high-adventure and coated in deliberate psychedelics; it embodies everything I love about Dalrymple. One of the best comics I’ve read by one of the best creators of my generation.” —Rick Remender“ (DEADLY CLASS, SEVEN TO ETERNITY)
“PROXIMA CENTAURI’s visuals are some of the best in comics.” —ComicBook.com
“PROXIMA CENTAURI is a fun, sweet read from all angles, blending new and exciting worlds with a strong undercurrent of the familiar.” —Doom Rocket
“Nonlinear yet highly immersive, PROXIMA CENTAURI is a vivid, swirling, unpredictable experience from beginning to end.” —Multiversity Comics
“Every once in a while, you come across a comic book that feels different than anything else on the shelves. It takes a certain type of confidence and talent to step so far outside the box. Farel Dalrymple shows that he is not lacking in either with PROXIMA CENTAURI.” —Rogues Portal.
“An exploration of space and time through the eyes of a troubled young boy, Dalrymple’s script captures the uncertainty of growing up against the backdrop of a psychedelic interdimensional journey.”- Newsarama

“PROXIMA CENTAURI,” Part Three After another emotional outburst, teenage wizard Sherwood Breadcoat goes on a bike ride and is challenged by a host of menacing characters. Digital : $2.99 Print: $2.99
from review on the The Brazen Bull:
“Sherwood continues his emotional journey in Proxima Centauri #3. Now, Sherwood is navigating romantic feelings, friendships, and bullies. However, the most puzzling part of young Sherwood’s journey this issue are the tiny blue creatures right at the end.
I cannot praise Farel Dalrymple enough for his thoughtful exploration of the adolescent mind. Proxima Centauri #3 has proved to be the most emotionally intense issue thus far. Sherwood’s journey through his bewildering planet is foreign in setting, but extremely realistic in all other aspects. Dalrymple’s surreal depiction of the teenager’s struggle creates a kind of tension in the narrative where the words and art amplify each other. As Sherwood’s world continues to grow more visually complex, Dalrymple draws more detail and the written narrative becomes equally more dynamic. In some respects, Sherwood is a highly relatable character, suffering from the typical teenage pangs. But his world is far more complex than ours, and Dalrymple reflects that in the art.
The Bottom Line: Proxima Centauri #3 is another triumphant issue. Farel Dalrymple continues to create an intriguing and surprising world, with a moody, insecure teenager as the lead character.”

hey world, i am (with thanks to the much help of one of my oldest friends) whipping this website into shape.
i am posting more on my Patreon where for just $2 a month you can get exclusive content and a chance to buy some smaller pieces and sketches.
a few people have asked me how to get that sort of thing outside of visiting me at a con or using ebay opportunists so i am making some stuff available you can buy direct from me.
also don’t forget you can buy lots of original comic art pages from my wonderful art dealer The Beguiling, including covers i have done recently. here is a video from my youtube channel of a few things i just sent to them.
and here are the next three covers in the Proxima Centauri series
