Just a quick column catching up with one of our faves Jeremy Whitley princelesscomic and the newest project he’s working on. Together with artist Heather Nunnlley imaginetheending, they have created an unique new comic focused on one Gianna Delrey, a young undocumented worker living in an America city in the not too distant future. It’s a place where she lives as a second class citizen—something akin to a crime. Illegal looks to be a sci-fi treat with a very important theme behind it. 


Feel free to read the write up in its entirety and be sure to take a look at their new kickstarter campaign—they’ve made a great start but still need pledges! Let’s help make this awesome comic a reality! 



A new project
Written by Jeremy Whitley (princelesscomic.tumblr.com)
Illustrated by Heather Nunnelly (imaginetheending.tumblr.com)

"In the future, the government will track your every move with a microchip implanted beneath your skin…and you’ll do anything to get one."

Illegal follows the story if Gianna Delrey, an undocumented immigrant living in the shadows of an enormous city. All citizens received a microchip that tracks their movements and stores the history of their lives. Anybody without a chip is an illegal. They can’t be tracked, but if they’re caught, they wind up in the deport camps - where the wait to be deported has become so long that most people die just trying to survive.

Gianna has done her best to stay invisible, but things are about to change and Gianna will have to choose whether to fight or to keep running.


Volume 1 of the web comic VACANT is currently available at the online store.


VACANT is a science fiction web comic following Commander Hayze, an agent of “The Eye” a powerful alien government/ corporate agency. Sent on a seemingly simple rescue mission, Hayze stumbles upon a possible explanation for the near extermination of the human race that had taken place over 100 years prior.

His only lead is a virus and, along with his crew, Hayze tries to find the cure.

It has the first 6 issues of the series including bonus material that would otherwise not be unattainable through the internet. This will include guest art, exclusive comic book pages, and a “How I did it” section at the back of the book. Vacant took six years to fully design and write. Photos will be included along with the answers to questions readers may have about the making of characters, environments, or script.

Adding Diversity To The Future of Sci-Fi - An Interview With The Creators of Illegal - @jrome58 @ImagineTEnding

DUSTIN: To start off can you tell us a little about Illegal and how the idea came to be?

JEREMY WHITLEY: Illegalis inspired by a history of loving science fiction…
