This blurb was written when this comic page first went online. It might not accurately reflect the current state of the RACIANTAU project. Consider it a piece of history.

A new character! Although we saw her on the last page, this is her full introduction. Behind the scenes we call her “Piel,” short for “Piel y Huesos” which is Spanish for “Skin and Bones.” That’s not her “actual name,” though. The creepy hand in the speech bubble toward the end of the page doesn’t sound like “Piel” when spoken. You can imagine what it actually sounds like.

the story: A Wake

On a night when spirits are said to stalk the land of the living, a young Racia is forced to confront the inevitability of death in a world no longer quite the one she took for granted. The memories may not last, but the lessons will haunt a lifetime.

the comic: RACIANTAU

An ongoing study in comics, storytelling, and philosophy, RACIANTAU is a comics anthology structured in the form of an essay. The title of the project (pronounced /rɔsiɑntoʊ/) is a contraction of the names "Racia" and "Antau" — the two main characters. The kids try to make sense out of a senseless world of VIOLENCE, IMPERMANENCE, ISOLATION. Anxious about the FUTURE OF OUR SPECIES, they find themselves face to face with the VOID WHICH CONSUMES ALL THINGS. In each story, one or both of them inch closer towards self-realization.
