Welcome to TransStellar, a comic detailing
the adventures of Dari, Jamen, Zartes and Apple, and their
ship the Evasion. It will also, in a more indirect way,
detail me getting to grips with drawing with continuity
and backgrounds (eeek). Not to mention deadlines (bleh)
I illustrate the comic, create the general
story, and write some of the gags. John (to my right) writes
more of the gags, and makes my gags funnier.
Some dedications are in order. I would
like to point you all towards the webcomics Schlock
Mercenary (which got me inspired to make the
setting for this comic after my previous one fell apart
from continual tinkering), Irregular
Webcomic (which inspired the whole “speech
balloons above the pictures” thing), and A
Miracle of Science (which inspired me to actually
sit down and write the sodding thing). I’ve also nicked
the one features all three comics share: the use of the
space under the comic to rant about the comic
I was also going to say something about
hard science, but John laughed at me. I'm not sure if it
was the lack of science, or the crude jokes...
Oh, and don’t worry… its not
all stabbing people.
Ahoy there, planetlubbers, and welcome
to the first ever TransStellar comic. This has been in the
making for... well... years now, ever since me, Jarrah,
and Anna first created Jamen, Zartes and Dari. Once they
were mere character sheets, today, they are the stars of
a fully-fledged webcomic, voyaging into new and unplumbed
depths of bad jokes, terrible punchlines and even worse
I'd like to dedicate this comic to the
many, many people who don't exist.
