I've been working on a graphic novel for the past month and a half or so, and after a few misfires trying make serializing it as a series of color zines work financially, I've decided it's going to be a webcomic instead. The website for it is here.
What's been posted so far is the first eight pages of what is looking like a 100-150 page story. AFFECTED is a long hard look at the Iraq War, modern alienation, the decline of American standards of living, and the truly monstrous sexual culture of Los Angeles. It's action comics, it's romance comics, it's art comics, it's sex comics, it's fiction, it's nonfiction. So far, I think it's the best thing I've ever done.
I've got about thirty pages finished at this point, and like I said so far I've posted the first eight. It starts a little slow but heats up pretty quickly after this. I'm going to try for regular updates on Mondays and Thursdays. The first few will be longer, multiple-page installments, and then it'll probably smooth out to two or three new pages a week as I eat up the surplus I've stockpiled. The first update is tomorrow at noon P.S.T., so check back then. For now, go here, and I hope you enjoy your first look at AFFECTED.
