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.

Holy shit, it’s Antau! Technically this is the second time we’re seeing him, since any observant … observer might’ve noticed he was the coworker telling Racia to go speak with their boss, back on Page 5.

Racia and Antau both look more adult here than they probably will look in other stories; that’s because the structure of this narrative wouldn’t make sense with them in their more common young teenager looks, and the setting they’re in lends itself well to a slight ambiguity or … elasticity? Flexibility in age and appearance. Saying much more would probably technically be a spoiler, although maybe only in retrospect. Whatever. Doesn’t matter.

The boss wasn’t kidding when he said Racia was an excellent employee, apparently. They gave her a plaque and everything!

the story: Battlemon

In a cheap but legally permissible knockoff world in the style of Pokemon or Monster Rancher we peek into the shared lives of a young woman (Racia) and her Battlemon partner (Bunners) as they navigate the expectations society has of them and they have of each other.

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.
