Hello I am Xiao Tong Kong (Vel). I am an 18 year old artist juggling school, freelance illustration, and the webcomic Countdown to Countdown!

What is Countdown to Countdown?

 In the year 2044- five years after the apocalypse breaks out, Iris Black is a young man stuck in a lab living a lonely life. Despite having the incredible power to bring paintings to life, his powers nearly set him on fire, brings him no friends, and results in him getting humiliated on a daily basis. Life doesn't seem to be able to get any worse than this.
Well- until the zombie outbreak overruns his home. Life then consists of using his scrawny legs to try to outrun zombies, smugglers, black market dealers, cannibals, all that fun jazz. At least the handsome gunslinger Lillium White is here to help! ...hopefully.

Countdown to Countdown is a post-apocalypse story with video game elements, utilizing game elements like "game over resets", "checkpoints", "choice systems", "inventories", and so much more! Our story follows Iris Black, a teenager with the mysterious power to bring pieces of art to life and a fear of fire as he finds his way in a seemingly unforgiving America. "Glitchy" Zombies are dying to get a taste of him and "Spawncamper" hunters are willing to go the extra mile to murder him for his powers. There's also plenty of breakfast puns and jokes here and there!

The Goal Here:

I've been devoting most- if not all of my free time to making this comic. It's been very tough, with at least hours spent on drawing a single panel- so needless to say motivation is key to help me out with getting my comic out there quicker and in better quality! Though my comic is free to read, donations through my Patreon here are very much appreciated to help fund my endeavors! Any kind of support helps, even just getting the word of my comic around <3 Thank you!

Rewards Include:

  • CTC panels before they're uploaded
  • Work in progress shots
  • High resolution versions of my CTC illustrations
  • Process gifs
  • Hopefully more along the way!
Thank you for reading and supporting Countdown to Countdown in any way! Iris and his friends are eternally grateful to you and we all look forward to taking you guys on this awesome journey in this post-flowery apocalypse!

You'll be helping me pay off some of my college tuition! That's a huge burden off my back as art school is expensive and this means I can live a debt free life!
