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 politician and its campaign organs following through on a promise? Incredible. Actually incredible. Who would take this seriously? What a joke. Luckily this is a gag comic and thus full of jokes. And luckily there’s one more strip to go before the saga of Antau Vacuo and the Giant Meteor is complete.

Building that electromag rail gun was probably a great public works program. But then, what will it be used for after this? I guess the idea might have been that, if this ends up being successful, there’s no real issue with finding another use for it. Ha.

Those titanium plates don’t look necessarily safe or functional, but then Antau doesn’t seem too worried.

This was a fun comic to work on and it was fun watching it get published. As you might guess, we’re publishing another Racia story after this is finished. It’ll start updating next week on Monday (10/31/2016) and run on a MWF update schedule. It’s called “Cabin Fever,” a name I’m quite proud of, and that’s all I’ll say about it for now.

We’ll be back to see Antau pretty soon, though. And next time he won’t be stuck in a newspaper comic strip format. I’m not sure if I’ll ever work in this format again … but it was perfect for “Collision 2016” and, even now, I don’t think I’d change a thing in this comic as it stands.

the story: Collision 2016

During a chaotic, fraught election season in a world different from but eerily similar to our own, one mercenary consultant-turned-campaign manager (Antau) sees an opportunity to give “The People” what they want: sweet release, in the form of a Giant Meteor presidency.

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.
