Destination: Mars
Destination: Mars is a 180-page graphic novel, that tells a tale of exploration, love and strangeness on an odd and incomprehensible world. Three people (and a cat) set out on a journey to Mars, only to discover that the world there is stranger and more dangerous than they could ever have known.

The main link contains the complete story, but it was originally written in four chapters, which can be read separately below:

Destination: Mars
Location: Mars
Contamination: Mars
Evacuation: Mars

It's also available as an ebook on itunes and amazon.
Role: writer illustrator

I really enjoyed this. Your other things (especially Tale #9: The Saddest King Of All) are great too.

If I had a penny for everytime I caused the accidental encubening of the sky...

This was enchanting.

I loved the art. The seeming simplicity and crabbed writing and crossouts disarmed me; put me in an open, nonjudgemental mindset that's like when a kid shows you a picture they drew and starts explaining what's happening. The crayon-yness of it all belies the sophistication of the composition and how beautifully it furthers the storytelling.

And it's a fantastic story! It zagged where I expected it to zig until I stopped trying to anticipate it and just let myself float on the stream. I really loved it. Thank you for sharing this, dng.
