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.

I called this “the shit page.”

I’ve been thinking about ways we’d offer a censored version of the comic, like, alongside or secondary to the main product, but pages like this, where the emotional outburst is sort of the whole point, make it a difficult issue to get around.

the story: Mars Freedom Colony

Racia and Antau join forces once more in our capstone on Civics. In the distant future Earth is so covered in crap no one wants to deal with it anymore, so humanity turns starward to start anew on Mars. Whatever obstacles stand against us we'll always look forward and move onward, bouyed by our greatest ideals: ingenuity, community, and above all else, freedom.

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.
