Set in 1830’s Europe, Once Our Land is the story of 11-year-old Ingrid; a young girl forced to fend for herself in a ravaged city overrun by fearsome beasts from another world. It’s in this cruel “past-apocalyptic” world where trust is in short supply that Ingrid forges an unlikely friendship with Fritz, a grizzled, old, eye-patched warrior. Together, Fritz and Ingrid embark on a dangerous journey to rid the city they love of the cruel beasts. Part light survival horror, part action, with strong heart and a healthy dose of levity-bringing humor, Once Our Land is an endearing tale of trust and friendship; a story about the power of community and standing united in the face of monstrous adversity.
Once Our Land is a “past-apocalyptic” tale set in 1830’s Europe. We follow two survivors, 11-year-old Ingrid and 50-year-old Fritz,as they build a friendship and defeat mysterious invaders that have surfaced our world. Once Our Land was written and illustrated by Peter Ricq, along with guest illustrators, published by Scout Comics.
