What We Created.

THEMES TOO IMPORTANT NOT TO SHARE

Webcomic: A comicbook-style story (i.e. Archie, Spider-Man, Wonder Woman) that can be read on a website. Our story is an epic morality tale designed to explore & discuss themes that every teen must face on their journey to adulthood (i.e. LOSS, ISOLATION, FEAR, DOUBT, etc.). All built on the foundation of biblical truth, with Jesus as The Way through life’s brokenness, back to the God who created us.

Biblical Truth. Epic Story.

This story is a love letter to all of us who struggle with the brokenness of life, and to the God who specializes in using those broken pieces to create something new.

Ty

STORY QUESTION:

“Why did God let everything fall apart?”

An orphan with a tragic past and an uncertain future, Tyren Hunter has never had it easy. Forced to work as a magnetic scavenger in the most dangerous part of the city (The Hanging Ruins), barely escaping death is an everyday occurrence. But ever the optimist, Ty is determined to build a new life for himself in the Ruins, no matter what he has to leave behind to do it.

Will Ty continue to bury his past to survive, or does his past hold value for the future?

Liv

STORY QUESTION:

“Why is God letting everything fall apart?”

At first glance, Olivia Trace is just your average teenage girl with a tight group of friends and an awkward high school crush. After dinner and homework however, she can be found searching through the shadows of Halcyon City as the ill-famed conspiracy theorist ‘Skylar’, determined to expose a deadly magnetic threat no one sees coming.

Will Liv be able to expose the truth before it’s too late, or does a deeper truth lie ahead?
