For a bit over a year, I've been working on Parhelion
, a comic built around some themes I've wanted to see (gay space pirate adventures, a wide range of weird aliens, bureaucratic networks of power), and I'm increasingly proud of it.
The main plot thread concerns the failure of a galactic government, when a disillusioned bureaucrat hooks up with a pirate to retrieve some files and launches them both into an array of grand schemes.
Meanwhile, plenty of people just want some peace and quiet
, and some other peopl
e are under tight pressure.
Chapters tend to be brisk, tracing a bunch of plot threads as they entwine in ways big and small. The current chapter will be concluded at the end of next week.
I appreciate your readership and feedback!
