I had a great time working on this comic book as part of this year’s 24 Hour Comic Book Day challenge at Mission Comics in SF. This year’s 24HCBD happened just a few days after The Latitude shut it’s doors. The Latitude was a real life secret society/augmented reality game by the folks behind The Jejune Institute. It was really incredible and Christine and I were sad to see it go.
So I didn’t have anything planned when I started my comic, but that closure was on my mind.
The Order Of The Snail is the end result and I’m so proud of how it turned out. The book follows a kid named Mason Waters who has created his very own secret society. A society of one. One day Mason invites Tim, an estranged older friend, to join The Order. Things change quickly and soon Mason feels like an outsider in his own club.
If you like the art I make, I’d really appreciate it if you check the project out and consider pre-ordering a copy. Mike Hales is doing a killer job coloring the book and I’m so happy with how this whole thing is coming together. At the Membership level, I’m even making some really awesome challenge coins with my friend Meredith.
