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.

And that’s all there is for “Nature Calls,” a haiku and another colored page.

If you’ve been to the Archives, you’ll know Phase One is called “Protasis” and you’ll also know it’s just about done. There’s one more story to go, “Desperate Times.” It’s the first true RACIANTAU story; Antau’s shown up in Racia’s first story, “Battlemon,” his presence was negligible; he didn’t matter. In this upcoming story they’re both the lead; hence, “RACIANTAU” (I call these Phase-ending stories starring both of them “capstones”).

When Phase Two starts up they’ll be off to their solo stories again; but not for long, and Phase Two’s capstone is much longer than “Desperate Times.” But we’re getting ahead of ourselves.

I hope you enjoyed “Nature Calls” as much as I enjoyed sharing it with you all! Like a lot of outfits out there, RACIANTAU will be taking a two-week break starting now. Enjoy the holidays, such as they are, and whatever vacation time you may or may not have between now and Monday, January 2nd, when we’ll start updating again on Mondays and Thursdays. The RACIANTAU journey is literally just getting started and we’re excited to have you along for the ride!

the story: Nature Calls

Two wild animals chance upon each other in a small clearing off a quiet mountain trail. Conflict arises from the core of all beings; some business cannot be settled with words.

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.
