About arby k

What is Grayling?

Grayling
is a queer fantasy/drama/adventure webcomic in black and white & color that features queer characters, written & drawn by me, Arby K, a 30+ yo queer cartoonist living in Arizona!

What's the plot?

In so many stories about fantasy worlds, the protagonist encounters some ancient gods who have been locked away for zillions of years, and possess incredible wisdom. They are usually reserved, grave, dignified, and powerful. They point the protagonist in the right direction and aid him in every way they can, which is usually not so very much. They vaguely recall massive wars and squabbles with each other that stretched over hundreds of years and impacted the lives of mortals worldwide. Their histories, and their motives, are mysterious.

Grayling is a story about a few such gods and how they got that way! 

How do I read Grayling?

Grayling is being published in a chapter/issue format both on the internet for free and in print. The comic updates every Tuesday & Thursday. Issues consist of approximately 50-100 pages, and are published in print individually and as collections through Indyplanet.

What is Grayling's background?

A previous iteration of Grayling ran from 2002-2008. The new version started in 2010 and updates as often as I can find time and energy for it after my day job! I started redoing the comic from scratch since the "draft" version of 2002-2008 was subject to a lot of flaws that I now hope to fix. I was determined to finish the comic in spite of those flaws, so I did, but I'm going back over it now and readdressing lots of the story that was left vague or untold. The story is going to be similar, but also incredibly different, and I hope it will have as much to offer older readers as folks who are viewing the story for the first time!

I have been fortunate to receive lots of excellent support from my readers in the past, and I have set up this Patreon so that if anyone wishes to provide for the comic's future, they can do so in an accessible, structured, and straightforward manner!

Why support Grayling?

When you support Grayling on Patreon, you gain access to exclusive concept art & notes, previews of upcoming pages, updates on what I am working on, additional commentary on updates, and much more!

With your support, I am enabled to keep working on comics and support my family. I can also expand into other areas I'm interested in, like embroidery & ceramics.

In short, pledging means you like my art and want to see more of it! 

Thank you!

Thanks a lot for visiting my Patreon, and I hope you consider supporting Grayling!

Even if you can't support me on Patreon today, if you read the comic & enjoy it, please consider spreading the words to your friends. Readers are more precious than anything!
