Volume 001.1 Intro Image

Ah, so happy... Ahh, so very happy... This book makes me so happy!

This story's got everything! Life in the great outdoors, a postapocalyptic setting, a scientist boy, primeval visuals and characters with the courage and conviction not to yield to an unfamiliar world. I seriously love it all, and drawing it is super fun!
