Jen Breach and Douglas Holgate are Australian creators who have been working on a huge graphic novel called Clem Heatherington and the Ironwood Race for many years. To take a break from this long project, they started ANOTHER huge project, a webcomic called,Maralinga 1956. Here’s the pitch:
Maralinga spins an alternative history from the 1956 British nuclear tests in the Woomera. Three hundred years later a ruined, irradiated, post-apocalyptic Australia is a place where monsters a real and one girl, the last of a isolated and dying community in Melbourne’s south, launches on a desperate journey to find sanctuary and a mythical inland sea.
Only the first chapter is up but it looks GREAT, with strong character designs rock solid storytelling and a new world to be discovered. Where do all these talented comcis creatros come from, anyway?
