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.

Hello, and welcome back to the Racia side of RACIANTAU for her next story, “Cabin Fever.” We’re glad to see you here, as always!

If you’ve been following us with any sort of consistency, you’ll find in these coming pages a pretty radical departure from what you’ll be used to thanks to “Battlemon” and “Collision 2016”. Framing, both on the page and within frames themselves, is much more dynamic than you may have come to expect. But hey; I suppose I should just let the art speak for itself.

With this page we’re also returning to full-page strips, which will be the norm for the foreseeable future. “Collision 2016” was a fun experiment and one I’d even like to repeat at some point, but these first stories in the RACIANTAU canon were all very much inspired texts, which in retrospect I feel I had very little control over. The “Cabin Fever” scripts and storyboards all basically came to us over the course of one night, just like Battlemon, and the same holds true for most of the upcoming stories.

Anywho. This story will be entertaining you all three times a week for the next four weeks. Hope you enjoy them! You ought to do your best to enjoy them, anyway. Life is a chaotic and unpredictable mess, y’know. This could, as they say, be it.

the story: Cabin Fever

Racia is in trouble when an otherwordly storm interrupts her flight over the freezing tundra. As passengers are tossed this way and that, Racia's thoughts drift from her present predicament to the horrible possibilities the future may hold.

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.

We're a self-taught comic-making duo with absurd politics and philosophy. We've made every page out of a desire for exploration and improvement. But if you enjoy what we put forth, your kind words will motivate us (email: If you want to read more, please join our fans and become our patron.
