Lost in Space

Experimental choose-your-own-adventure webcomic about being lost in space

Currently on indefinite hiatus (although not abandoned), Lost in Space is an attempt to run a CYOA webcomic with democratic user choice.

Each comic is written in second person and readers are invited to suggest what should happen next (or vote on an existing suggestion). The top choice is used as input to create the next comic.

I'm working on a new version of the site using React. Git + symlinks are employed to create a near-zero-downtime deploy system, based on Etsy's.

Alongside

Penny and Arthur

A comic about two kids and a cardboard box. Also time travel.

I started drawing Penny and Arthur on a bus, my senior year of high school. Influenced by Watterson, I tried to keep the characters interesting and the action fantastic. Ultimately, starting college caught up with me and I was unable to continue the comic.

Fish Food 3

A fictional and somewhat autobiographical continuation of Fish Food starring Erty, Sam, and Scott

This is the third iteration of Fish Food, my earliest webcomic. This one only made it 6 comics before I started Penny and Arthur.

To Save a Life

An onlne graphic novel drawn in infinite canvas style. Twelve chapters of teenage magic fantasy

To Save a Life was my experiment in long-form graphic novels. Drawn while a Junior in high school, I posted (mostly) daily updates to this comic. You can really see my art get better and more dynamic through the year and a half that it took me to complete this.

The Infinite Canvas style was invented by comics genius Scott McCloud, and is uniquely suited to digital display.

Alongside

  • Scott Reu

A comic I drew to keep myself occupied in Chinese class.

The title translates to "Two People". I can't promise the comics make sense in either language. I think you really need to be a beginning Chinese student to find them funny.

Fish Food 2

A comic that has nothing to do with Fish Food 1, we join the author, Erty, in his crazy adventures.

The second iteration of Fish Food, my first webcomic. This one ran for almost two years! The comics starting with 9xxx are ones that didn't run or were just filler. I think Scott Reu joined me for the writing for a while.

24-Hour Comics

Done in 2006, 2009, and 2011, these comics are 24 pages done in 24 hours.

For more information about the 24-hour comic, see inventor Scott McCloud's website.

Multiplayer Mayhem

I'm not even that much a fan of Halo.

Four sprite comics using Halo sprites. I guess?

Green and Orange

A series of .gif animations that follow the adventures of Green and Orange, two Megaman recolors.

This was back when sprite comics were all the rage, inspired by Bob and George.

My first webcomic, Fish Food 1 follows college students Ben and Mike through their videogame-induced adventures.

Only nine comics, and the second one is me apologizing for not keeping to my schedule. Prescient much? But it was a start!
