ESCAPIST COMIX

Comfort Comics for Everyone

Home-grown comfort comics for all people, like the food Grammy made on Saturday mornings. Pull up a seat. Taste the difference.

ESCAPIST COMIX was founded in 2016 by J. Rutland, Author / Illustrator / Fictitious Cartographer. Visit his website for more info.

The ESCAPIST line presents original hand-crafted comics: 

ROBOT SAMURAI PENGUINS

Ages 8 & up -- epic, action/adventure, world-building 

    
Robot penguin Waddul desperately wants to escape the boring life society has drawn out for him. He wants to battle storms and snow monsters likehis awesome ancestor, Stony, who was brave enough to break the mold of robotic work. But he should be careful what he wishes for. When he moves to Iceburgh and has a run-in with I.C. Moto, who is atuallya real snowball fighter, it’s clear Waddul’s path to heroism will be no waddle in the ice park. I.C. turns his rough-nd-tumble friends against Waddul. New to the landscape, with enemies at each icicle, Waddul never realized achieving hero status would require so much surrender.

LITTLE PREACHER

Ages 9 & up -- weighty, contemplative, spiritual

 
Nine year old John is a preacher's kid in rural Alabama in the 1920s. Harsh fire and brimstone doctrine echo from his daddy's church walls, but their relationship outside the church is full of fishing, hiking, and peaceful connection. When life alters this bond, John struggles to differentiate his daddy's rigid thoughts and his loving character. Can John navigate his beliefs through tumultuous change?

DARK PLOTTER

Ages 6 & up -- whimsical, fun, light-hearted, humor

Isaac wants the gooey delicious cookies his mom just made. But it's time for bed? Seriously? But that's okay, because when night beckons, Isaac transforms into Dark Plotter, a creative amalgamation of all the geeky books and stories that fill his brain. Plotter has no bed time. Plotter has no rules, and he attains what he wants against tyrannical rulers. No enemy is too furry, no foe too crafty... for this super hero.


STEAMPUNK EDDIE

Ages 8 & up -- action, adventure, time travel
Eddie would much rather investigate mysterious crashes with his dog Oscar than study for a boring quiz. He gets his chance to think outside the box when an encounter with a snarky time-traveling robot propels him to places he’s halfway heard about in school. The robot’s task is to return items stolen throughout history. If only there was a time pirate who’s out for revenge on the robot for messing up his plans… oh wait, there is! Eddie’s horizons are about to expand past the county limits.
