This is my first webcomic, which I've written and am getting produced about the end of the world, and the beginning of real life.
In the tradition of XKCD, Cyanide & Happiness, and Questionable Content, I'm venturing to tell a funny, cool, thought provoking story in bite sized bits that everyone can easily digest! Or rather, I've been venturing for the last 3 months and am trying to bring everything to a close. I can't give away too much of the story. I don't want to spoil it for you! However, I can tell you the basics. Mac and Zoe, our main characters, have found themselves thrown into a horrible planet-wide cataclysmic event that brings every society on planet earth to their knees, and then to their graves. It's a story of survival, love, courage, fear, and triumph. More importantly, for me at least, it's a story about challenging the notions that society has created for us, making your own rules, and living free.

You are my biggest fan. Fate has smiled upon me in granting me access to such an upstanding and generous individual as yourself in my lifetime. My children will sing your praises! For you, I'll add a character into the series that doesn't end up dying, hand deliver an autographed poster to you and then take you to brunch and show you the entire first year of strips, assuming you're in the Tri-State area.Estimated delivery: Jun 2012
