Scene transition! And a little peek at this town’s unusual nature.

That’s it for the first update everyone!

Thanks to all the people who helped me out in any way while I was working on this in the last few years, with feedback, practical help or moral support!

I made a goal last year to build a good buffer of pages. That succeeded, so here we are. πŸ˜€ I really wanted to reach this date with enough pages to go live because it’d have been my dad’s 75th birthday today. I liked the idea of making it a special day and remembering him in this way.

If you would like to know more about how the comic came to be and the process preceding it, I have written a blog post about it, which you can read here.

For anyone who loves to see the comic making process in detail: if you subscribe to my mailing list you will receive quite the package of info and behind the scenes:

*A 30 page pdf with my process and the sketches and concept art for the prologue. (Yes, that means spoilers!)
*A preview of chapter one. (Which is 17 weeks away. Again: contains spoilers πŸ˜‰ )
*Five videos in which I take you through my Photoshop files for the first five pages you’ve just read. I also talk about my thoughts about starting a new project and what I was thinking in terms of story and character.

You can read more about the list here or directly fill in your name and email address in the right side bar ->

The free gifts will be send to your inbox right away! πŸ˜€

I send out an email roughly every week and you always have the option to unsubscribe in every mail I send you.

Thanks so much for coming to the site to read this quirky little comic of mine. If you can, please leave a comment, I’d love to connect! πŸ˜€

↓ Transcript
A big one page spread shows the camera being halfway underwater, so we see both the dock and the kart sinking to the bottom of the harbour. The sun is lighting up the grand apartment buildings on this side of the city. The children are being dragged out of the water by the policemen. The sunlight colours the water pink. It breaks through the surface and illuminates the last of the bubbles left by the sinking kart. On the sandy and rocky bottom of the harbour are algae, little bits of coral and strange glowing pieces of coral and rocks. They light up bright blue. Little fish swim in between them and they lie scattered all over the ground. The kart almost hits the bottom.
