Being a European PAL gamer in the early '90s was pretty cool. Yet being a well-informed European PAL gamer in the same period was a nightmare. Sadly I was one of the later breed, the brave ones who ventured out every month to get the latest issue of magazines like Super Play. As such I was painfully aware that there were no big black borders on Super Nintendo games in America and Japan - their games ran at 60hz instead of our PAL 50hz and, worst of it all, hundreds of games never arrived in Europe, let alone my small country of Portugal.

OFF-WHITE is a fantasy comic written and drawn by Jessi Derenthal, Anna Podedworna and Katarzyna Redesiuk.


The realm in which the story takes place is a mixture of loosely interpreted Norse mythology and original ideas of the authors. The main plot line revolves around a pack of wolves led by their alpha to meet a mysterious sage, who is going to decide about the destiny of the youngest member of the group. The comic started as a 5 page one-shot. At first it was going to be only a drawing practice, but it met such a warm reception from deviantART users, that soon more pages were released.

The first page was released back in June of 2008. Even though at the very beginning, the sketches for the comic were done on paper, now it's made completely digitally. The beginnings of the comic were very chaotic and because of that we drew from various sources. The story we want to tell should close in 3 volumes 200-250 pages each.
