Hello! I'm @cryptovexillologist, and I make Parhelion, a comic about pirates and warlords and middle-managers trying to get by and love each other in a weird political disaster of a galaxy.

The first recommendation post in ages! It's for Shigeru Mizuki's brilliant Showa: A History of Japan.

My favorite inspiration for alien philosophies and modes of thought is reading about Enlightenment thinkers who laid out familiar ideas, like "torture is wrong" and "monarchy is bad", with bizarre-sounding chains of logic

It is my firm belief that people of all genders should get the opportunity to both be subclinically-autistic nerds *and* to strive to be a better person with nothing to go on except "not what my family did"

Shuffling around the genders of some dating-sim characters, since I realized that both the men are chipper nerds with autobiographically semi-autistic traits, and both the women are rebuilding their moral compasses after leaving toxic authoritarian cultures

Beauty and the Beast: Dramatic hand holding edition (I love tinted sketchbooks so much)

TIRED: Robots who speak excessively formally because that's just how they're wired

WIRED: Robots who speak excessively formally because their first language is Latin

The gist is that they're a robot built by a super-hierarchical, authoritarian society to tutor people before they enter patron/client marriages

They were taught, "I'm not a slave, I have the same rights and duties as any other citizen", and only recently (with the help of some bugs) did they put two and two together

At work yesterday, I had a really great idea for a character, that can't fit anywhere into the main plot

Luckily, this is what dating sim side projects are for!

Wanderers, four short stories about strange planets

Not Parhelion, but deals with a lot of similar themes: exploration, tyranny, ambition for good or evil

Cross Sections, an anniversary special inspired by those books of Star Wars schematics

But here, each one is compiled by someone who's kinda biased and out of the loop

Some highlights of special projects:

Xenosartorial, a fashion zine!

The main zine is free, but $2 gets you some portraits of ~Alternate Timelines~.

Hello! I look forward to setting up shop here when it's not 11:30 and I'm exhausted.
