Maiden in Disguise

 A Comic Book Series by Bitsy Tandem; 

It's hard being the coolest guy online, when no one knows you're actually a teenage girl! Follow Elianna and her friends on the planet Eotera, a world where video-games rule, cyborgs are real, and aliens may be closer than we expect. 

A World of Wonder

If you have read Maiden in Disguise, you've probably noticed that the world my characters live in is a bit different than Earth: 

But, for those of you who have not read Maiden in Disguise, Eotera is not earth.  

For starters, the planet is significantly younger, with its main residents being far more advanced than you would expect for the age. It is the year 1813 AD ("After Documentation"), and the technology on Eotera is not far from our own in the realm of Athus 8. 

Most similarities to Earth begin and end with Eotera having a similar placement to its sun, its blue/green color, and its humanoid inhabitants. The continental structure is far different, the people are generally much more peaceful, and they hold a greater appreciation for all things pun related. 

In high school classes, you can find cyborgs learning alongside their human counterparts. Aliens walk unnoticed among the denizens of this world. And, the oddly familiar, yet stunningly strange  creatures of this planet spark the imaginations and curiosities of all foreign visitors. 

This amazing place is where all of my current stories occur, and the concept of it was introduced in Book 2 of Maiden in Disguise through an AI-hosted, multiverse-spanning webshow:

The Multiverse

Eotera exists in the reality of Athus 12. It is the planet residing in the Intergalactic Coordinates of 3-015, in the year 1813. Earth exists in the reality of Athus 8. It is where you live.

Within this wide array of distinct realities, there is a Trans-Universal Web Show hosted by Advanced Reality Monitoring Artificial Intelligences (ARM-AI), Armin and AI 1-0428:

There are only a few realms that actually know of the existence of other realities. But, once they've achieved Aware Status, they can easily tune into this show. As the ultimate in vicarious entertainment, The ARM-AI share stories of up-and-coming realms to the multiverses as a whole, since most organic lifeforms seem to enjoy learning about how other organic lifeforms lead their strange lives.   

As such, my Visitor's Guide will be brought to life by these two spunky web-hosts as they walk you through everything you'll need to know about Eotera!

Why A Visitor's Guide?

The main plot of Maiden in Disguise is projected to finish in a total of 15-20 books, and I am currently finishing up Book 3. While I can do quite a bit through drawing and writing, I only have so much time to build the larger world of Eotera within that story since the main focus is on Eli and her development. 

So, I want to provide a way for readers to fully immerse themselves in this world, have their bigger questions answered, and understand the greater context for future stories that will unfold in this setting.

Just a few of the things you will come to learn will include:

  • How the invention of the Steam Turbine by Maxwell Wrightford in the year 1350 changed the world.
  • Why the clouds around Mt Hakone, the largest singular mountain peak on the continent of Tsukiame, turn pink only once a year.
  • Who created the ground-breaking, hit MMORPG Legend of Worlds out of a garage in Ohckon Prime, the capital city of the Allied Nation States.

And when the Guide is finished, you'll have absolutely everything you need to know for the day you plan a trip to Eotera in one helpful guide!

Risks and challenges

This project is being operated and completed by a very small, but motivated, team. We've never made something as comprehensive as this. The estimated dates are what we feel are reasonable, but there is always the chance that things may take longer than expected.

With one person doing most of the art, and another individual doing the design and editing, we'll do our utmost to complete the project on time, but we will also inform you with consistent updates as the project comes along.
