I'm Dale. My comic is called "One Step...Beyond!". It's a sci-fi story, set in the world outside your window. Chip is a seemingly normal, average guy who became frustrated with social media and built a treehouse in his backyard out of frustration. One day, he and a friend realize the existence of a real life zombie apocalypse. But it isn't for a few months later that his life goes one step...beyond.
The comic is a long-form series about the world outside your window, zombie apocalypses, pandemics, the need for escapism, imagination, alternate universes and whether time travel is real or not.
Several years ago, I published a webcomic called Hold My Life on Girlamatic.com. When I started creating One Step...Beyond!, I wanted to publish this one as a print comic and take it around to conventions. However, current reality being what it is, publishing in print and going to conventions is not a feasible option for the foreseeable future.
But, I still wanted to publish this. I wanted the creative outlet, and so I figured I'd go back to the webcomic model and publish here. I'd posted draft versions of some of the pages here before, so the series existed in a sense.
As I rethought my plans recently, and looking at what I had been producing, it occurred to me that this series is probably better suited to being a webcomic anyway. It breaks down into individual episodes and strips better than it would have worked as a regular comic book. So maybe it was meant to be.
I've been posting every few days, and my ultimate goal is to post something weekly and get some momentum going. I hope some of you give it a try and enjoy it.
