howdy all,

(this seemed to be the best sub-forum for this post??)

i used to hang around the DSG quite a bit. i put down the pencil for a while and've been doing carpentry for the last few years, but i'm finally getting back into the swing of things comics-wise. i heard about the Small Press Idol competition over at Dimestore and thought i might give it whirl.

the story takes place in philadelphia, concerning a video game that nearly made it to the public main. i'm going to delve into the 'why' aspect of the government's interest and (alleged) subsequent prohibition of the game's blossoming insurrectionist ideologies... amid explosions and blood and your momma jokes.

here's a little vignette:
