What is "The Depths"?

The Depths is an adults-only web-comic featuring anthropomorphic creatures cast in a historical alternate-Earth setting from the 1920s to the 1930s. It stars Leilani Perierre, a beautiful, brave, and sometimes savage sea otter of the Polynesian Islands in the South Pacific. The Depths focuses not only on Leilani's origins growing up wild and tribal on a remote paradisaical island, but also her tales of romance, mystery, and epic adventure - above and below the deep blue sea.

Who is Leilani Perierre?


Art: ABlueDeer

Leilani Perierre is a beautiful, bold, tribal sea otter who comes from the South Pacific, in Bora Bora and later Tahiti, in the French Polynesian Islands in the 1920s through 1930s. Sensual as well as savage, she becomes enmeshed in several adventures that test both her heart and her courage, as she travels the high seas, tropical sands, and even the big cities finding adventure, romance, and danger at every turn. With her are a cast of characters who join with her as friends, as lovers, and deadly foes.

Meet the current cast!



Leilani, daughter of a tribal chieftain in the South Pacific, is the main character of "The Depths", and acts as narrator for flashbacks to her numerous adventures of romance and danger.

David, Leilani's main love interest in her retrospects, is a journalist from New York City. He falls for Leilani at first sight and wants nothing more than to be with her forever.

Malana, beautiful but brash, is Leilani's foil. While she strives to maintain a shaky friendship with the other otter, her jealousy and envy get in the way.

Kalea, Leilani's BFF. She sees her friendship with Leilani as a pleasure and a privilege. She is sweet and kind, and the peacemaker when Malana and Leilani are at odds.

Jamie, the callous, manipulative antagonist and foil to David. His lust for the beautiful otters in this strange new world is only equaled by his lust for power and wealth.

Thierry, a French detective of the Suerte in Marseilles. While his story is mostly unknown and he does not appear often, he is undoubtedly Leilani's new love, and hopes to make her life happy somehow. 

How about her creator?


I go by a few pseudonyms on the writing circuit, but I'm a real-life multi-talented writer, author, and scriptwriter. My experience includes seven published non-fiction books, a published fiction novel, and a novel series destined for, in my agent's words, the best-seller list. I have over 200 published articles to my credit, more than 100 short stories written, and I'm a feature blogger for the widely-popular Medium and Thrive Global websites.

Why Patreon?

Why am I here, and why should you pledge support to me? I'm here mostly because a lot of my friends are here, with varying degrees of success with their own Patreons, and I believe I have enough skill, talent, and support to do something pretty amazing here.

So, why should you support me?  "The Depths" webcomic relies not only on my own funding and efforts, but those of many others. I'm indebted to very fabulous artists ABlueDeer and Kino Jaggernov, who have worked so hard the past year or so just to get this webcomic not only off the ground but several pages in, and the response has been nothing short of meteoric so far. I'm also grateful to veteran artist Twinkle-Sez, who since joining the art team to fill in for ABlueDeer, has made the artwork pop even more. <3

Plus, with enough support behind me, I can bring other sensational artwork and web-comics into the mix, not just through comics, but graphic novels, and even web animations, so I really hope this is a worthy and feasible Patreon to take part in.
