Look Straight Ahead page 1 by dlmx-13 Look Straight Ahead page 1 by dlmx-13
Let's get this party started.

This is the first page of Look Straight Ahead, my graphic novel in progress. It's about a teenage boy who suffers a nervous breakdown in his last year of high school (and eventually recovers). I've completed five issues so far, and am nearly done the sixth! I also just won a Xeric Award to self-publish the whole story as a complete graphic novel! :) :faint:

Read the entire comic so far at this address: [link] and subscribe to the RSS feed, follow me on Tumblr/Twitter/Blogger, or Like me on Facebook to be notified of updates! (I update every Monday and Thursday!) Enjoy! :)

Daily Deviation

Given 2012-03-15
Suggester Said: "I want to suggest this comic for a DD first because of it's amazing art, but mostly because the story is something educational and eye opening while still being entertaining to read. I see a lot of mentally ill characters across stories and comics, but none so achingly real as this one. What's most magis is that the comic allows you to experience a small part of this characters illness, not simply watch it happen. It's worth a read for anyone."

Note me - I have four physical issues for sale right now, with a fifth on the way soon. :) Working on getting a trade paperback together eventually as well.

I urge anyone who likes this to check out the link and read the whole thing, it's well drawn and well inked, with great pacing and framework. But on top of that, the imagery is fantastic, really impressive artistic ideas that keep you hooked throghout, as well as a gripping story that keeps you interested and involved with the characters. It's really impressive as a sequential, kudos to the artist for a fantastic job

I visited you blog and read the entire comic.

It's a really amazing and totally engrossing story. Your art is fantastic, and they way you depict his insanity is, well I don't have a good word ofr it, but it seems pretty insane-ish. Effective? That doesn't cover it. It's just brilliant.

Excellent work, keep it coming!
