Man! Traversing through hallways in high school and middle school should be its own olympic event. Once in middle school I was walking down the hallway, and this kid came running down the hall, punched me in the stomach, and kept on running. I don’t think we knew each other even.
You've reached the end of Chapter One.
Weekly page updates will pause temporarily while I continue work on Chapter Two. In the meantime, I'll keep posting updates about process and progress and beautiful things that show up in my mailbox (holler for the address). Consider subscribing to this site ( E-mail | RSS | feed URL ) if you'd like to be kept in the proverbial loop.
And if, like me, you still prefer to read your comics on paper pages, there's a hand-bound, lovingly assembled, full-color physical book of chapter one, just waiting to be signed and sent your way.
Did you use a reference for these panels?
I climbed onto my mom’s roof in the suburbs where I grew up to sketch some rooftop and snap some photos, which definitely influenced this page.
But the resulting town is no place in particular, a combination of my hometown in New Jersey and a lot of places I’ve canvassed for political campaigns, including Denver and Pennsylvania’s Leheigh Valley.
Kenan, I love these panels they are so beautiful.
I didn’t know you were working on a longer comic. I read the first six pages, I found out via twitter, then I immediately ordered a copy before you start doing the math and charging more money. It looks beautiful. You’re using techniques that could only be done in comics. Wonderful. Love the character designs too, I can’t wait to read more of the story.
