About

Hey, cool people! We're Micah Solusod (artist) and Ayu Sakata (writer/colorist), and we love to make art and tell stories! Over the course of five years, we wrote and released the first volume of our comic Ties That Bind. It's got magic, fighting, some pretty awesome hair, and we're very proud of it. We've also started on a murder mystery light novel called Keitantei. But we need your help to keep the art going!

Right now we're getting by doing side jobs to make ends meet, and it's slowing down our work quite a bit. Money from the Patreon will go to cover art supplies and help with Micah's medical bills for his tendinitis. Our end goal is regular updates of our comic and more art for everyone. Read on to learn more about our ongoing projects.

In the kingdom of Cendar, magic is used for everything from cooking and cleaning to medicine and warfare. But recently, several people have been born without the ability to use magic or be affected by it. Eon is a young soldier tasked with protecting one of these "cursed children." He's certain it's another routine mission, but the secret behind the cursed children is one that could end his life.

Morita Nakayama is famous for his portrayal of a genius teen detective on TV, but he's also helped solve several real-world cases. At least, that's what the public thinks. The real detective is his best friend Ai, a girl with a keen mind and an even keener dislike for having to talk to people. She texts her deductions to Morita and he plays detective for the police. Will they be able to keep up the charade? Will Ai be able to find a murderer before he strikes again? Will Morita get a callback audition for that new show?
