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.

Do you recognize the inspiration for these trees? NEEEERRRno, it was a pretty fun game, it’s okay, I’m a nerd, too.

That’s it for “Desperate Times,” and Phase One as a whole! There aren’t any breaks on this train anymore, though. Come back next Monday on January 23rd for the next Racia story, “I Live in a Senseless Town,” which starts out Phase Two, Civics!

From now on, by the way, we’ll be updating every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. So make sure to stick around! Things are speeding up! There’s nowhere to go but forward!

the story: Desperate Times

Stranded in the woods after an upriver trip gone wrong, Scouts Racia and Antau struggle to find their way back to civilization. Tensions rise as the sun sets.

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.
