The Comic

Doomsday, My Dear is intended to be read from start to finish without interruption, which I understand is difficult when it only updates a few times a week. I consider it more of a glorified storyboard than a graphic novel, and my hope is that, when all is said and done, somebody starting from the beginning will experience it as a vaguely film-like experience. For this reason, the pacing may seem a little strange sometimes, but I hope you’ll bear with it long enough to see how it all fits together.

I will shamefully admit that this began when a couple friends and I were involved in an RPG that ended up falling apart after a few months. I loved the concept so much, and was so excited about where it could go, that I decided not to let it rest and got permission from everyone to revamp and continue the story.

I have the entire thing blocked out from start to finish, with some very gracious help from a couple people mentioned below. In spite of its (literally) sketchy origins, I’m eager to see this project through to the end, and I hope you’ll come along for the ride.

The Artist

My name is Cami. I recently graduated with an MFA in Animation, and I currently work on storyboards for Archer. I have been told I draw well, for a girl.

The People Without Whom I Would Basically Die

Jess – Creator of Narissa and Patrick’s original concepts*, as well as that of someone we haven’t met yet. Also my main sounding-board for story ideas, overall super-amazing moral support.

Al J – Basically did everything coding-related for the site and forum out of the goodness of their heart.

Daniel – Was my beta reader for chapters one and two. Inspiration for Jens’ outlandish accent.

Dan – Fixed the things Al couldn’t.

Ricky – Moral support, offerer-of-perspective, creator of someone we haven’t met yet.

Lizzi, Sam, and Jeni – David, Sam, and Esperanza, respectively*.

*By this I mean they generously gave me the go-ahead to use and shape their character concepts in a way that fits the story. Every character in the comic is written by me.
