Page One – All Aboard
February 25th, 2009

Welcome to Astral Airlines. It’s been a long time coming, but we now have something to show for all our sketchpad doodling and notebook noodling. Our explanation for just what we’re doing changes daily, but here’s how we’re describing it right now:

What if you had control over your dreams? What if your dreams had control over you? When Herb and Ada meet their Keepers, two gentle monsters of the soul named Star Belly and Wee Ted, they begin a journey aboard an Astral Plane populated by turnips, giant rabbits, disembodied hands and the Immortal Flour God. Here, with the guidance of their Keepers and the help of the Astral Airlines staff, they’ll navigate their dreams, conquer their nightmares and learn that there are no-cost flights to any destination you can imagine.

We’re planning on telling the story via five-page mini-comics, and above you should see the first page of part one. Each story will stand alone, but this is the introduction to what we hope will be a larger tale. We hope you’ll join us to see where this thing goes.
