Introducing my comic about peak oil!


Those who know me also know I'm a doomsday fanatic about the end of the petroleum era. As such, I felt compelled to make my first comic book all about that. It is called SPOILED and will be coming soon to TCAF!

Here is a sneak peak...

This looks fantastic! The cover image is absolutely perfect. I'm very impressed.

Gorgeous cover! It's now my new desktop. Looking forward to reading the book!

And Kimball has become increasingly concerned with gas consumption (I think the high price to fill his tank is what did it). I know he'll want to read your story and yet dread it at the same time :) Dread because it means altering the way we live and that's always kind of scary.

hugs,
j.

Thanks, you two! I'm really glad you like it, I feel really good about it (but can always see where to improve!).

If Kimball is a vegetarian out of a love for animals, he might feel fine about changing his lifestyle (ie. drive less) if he also falls in love with nature and the planet. I know, sounds flaky, but I hope you'll both enjoy the comic! :-)

This looks awesome and as I've said to Michael makes me green with envy! I look forward to seeing the whole thing soon.

Frannie said...

Diana, you're too cute -- you're one of the reasons I took the plunge to make a comic in the first place! And I can't wait to see li'l Rosie in print, too!

Damn, you can sure draw! I'd love to see a copy of this. It sounds like it would sit well next to The Lorox on my bookshelf.

Read this last night, and was really impressed. Political without the soapbox, meaningful without pulling out the Message Hammer. And your design sense really carries over to your illustration, which is completely charming.

I'm excited to see what you'll do next. I'll be watching your budding comics career with great interest.

Frannie said...

Wow, thank you Scott. I'll try not to disappoint with the next comic (thinking of a web comic based on this). I'm really glad you enjoyed it and found it a worthwhile read. :-)

Yay!! I can't wait to read the whole book!

I read your comic today and absolutely loved it! It made me feel more hopeful than I have in a long time!! :) :) :)

I publish a compilation zine on mental health but specifically mental health in a political context - like how to stay sane and healthy given the crises we face as a society. Any chance you'd be interested in submitting a frame or two?

Thanks for a great story!

Aw Kathryn, you make me so happy with your comments! I'm really glad my drawings and posts are inspiring to you. I took a look at your blog and love it! Yes, do make your future what you want it to be... otherwise you'll be living somebody else's vision, afterall.

You might enjoy my webcomic about a girl trying to make her neighbourhood peak-oil ready, if you'd like to take a look.

Only watching the cover we can imagine how great it will be. :)
