Welcome to Last Res0rt.  It's the adventures of spacefaring violinist-turned-vampire Jigsaw Forte, an alien marsupial catgirl, and her efforts to save family friend (and CEO of an interplanetary corporation) Daisy Archanis, who's been left out to dry with a robotic leg and shanghai'd into a deadly reality show alongside condemned criminals.

Their cohorts and competition include a disgraced Star Organization hacker left to rot in solitary confinement for almost five decades, an artist accused of seducing and petrifying his murder victims, spies, traitors, a pair of Djinn who only survived to make it onto the show as a bargaining chip to bring a cult leader to justice, and that's not even all the people trying to get them killed!


I do my best to keep the comic action going at a rate of one page a week, with new pages currently going online every Tuesday -- a rate I'd LOVE to speed up, given the appropriate motivations.

All other things being equal, I do the work that makes the most money -- some days it's freelance work for a startup you've never heard of, some weekends it's a hackathon, and some days it's this comic. The more I can generate through the comic, the less I have to worry about the other stuff.

TL;DR: The more I can focus on making awesome things, the more I can make awesome things.


This is an ongoing effort, and more to the point, it's a collaborative one. If you're not impressed with the rewards going on below, you're more than welcome to suggest your own.

Kick in at whatever level suits you, and even if you're biding your time, come on over to the website and settle in with the rest of the commenters. I'm 99% sure they're human, so you'll fit right in.

Well, I'm not about to put more than three pages of Last Res0rt up in a week -- that's crazy talk! But doing another comic sounds like fun, and I have some ideas... although if we get this far, I think it's safe to say you'll get to have some input as well!
