The Art of Webcomics


Wait, where am I?

Welcome! I’m Niina Eveliina Salmelin, and it seems you have found the homepage of Numb, my ongoing webcomic. Perhaps you are a reader of Numb from some other site, or someone who’s looking for some new comics to read, maybe you’re just a lone wanderer that stumbled upon here on your journey through the internet. All the same, I’m happy to have you over!


A webcomic you say, what’s it about?

Numb starts with Levi and Sue, who attempt to meet again after a long pause in their friendship. 
However Levi ends up in an accident that has something else behind it than just careless street crossing. Old strains
are being brought up and something sinister is lurking around. 

Unknowingly, with his act of kindness, Levi has started a chain of events that'll lure in both familiar and new faces. 
Willingly or not, one cannot brush past the Field's call...

What would you do, if your senses start blending between what's real and fantasy?

Numb is a character driven comic and a uncanny mix of mystery, horror and drama. Both the art and story are by me, and I create the art traditionally with pencil and watercolor on A3 paper. Both the art and story have received critical acclaim around the web. Don’t hesitate to jump in and experience the story with Levi, Susan, Amy and Nikita! This ride is just about to start!

“With a unique story, surreal art, and lovable characters,
