About the Phoenix Requiem
Romance, Supernatural, Fantasy-Victorian
2007 - 2010
On a cold December night, a gentleman stumbles into the town of Esk, gunshot wounds leaving a trail of blood in the snow behind him. Despite making a full recovery at the hands of an inexperienced nurse - and deciding to make a new life for himself in the town - he is unable to escape the supernatural beings, both good and bad, that seem to follow him like shadows.
As they try to discover why, the nurse must question her beliefs and risk her own life in order to protect her family, her friends, and those that she loves.
After completing Inverloch, I immediately jumped right in to scripting out my second story. It still had many flaws - I think the characters are probably aren't as loved by the readers as those from Inverloch - but it was a more strongly plotted story with better direction, planning, and less of the whole making-things-up-as-I-go-along.
The art is more consistent from beginning to end, having grown my skills so much during Inverloch. It's certainly not my final form, but a large stepping stone on the way to finding my comic style. And as with Inverloch, the community that formed while the story slowly updated and revealed itself online over the course of 3 years was honestly one of the best memories I have of my 20s.
