Well, in case you missed any of it, I thought that I’d collect all eight ‘episodes’ of my “Damania Regenerated” webcomic mini series into one easy-to-read post. Links to other mini series can be found in the ‘2016’ and ‘2017’ sections of this page.
This mini series was a lot of fun to make and after the slight dip in quality during the last two mini series, the comic finally seems to be back to the high standard of my ‘time travel’ trilogy (part one, two, three). And, yes, I still seem to be in the mood for making narrative comics, rather than more traditional stand-alone comic updates, at the moment.
Although I’m honestly surprised that it took me this long to think of making a cyberpunk comic set on an abandoned space station – given that abandoned spaceships are one of my favourite locations in the sci-fi genre.
The main visual inspirations for the look of this mini series include “Blade Runner” (it inspires virtually every piece of sci-fi art I make), the colour scheme used in this really cool ‘Doom II’ WAD (but not the tiled walls – since they were probably more inspired by “Blade Runner” and “System Shock”), the original “System Shock”, the movie “Cube”, a classic TV show called “Red Dwarf”, and the 1990s in general (since dramatic/gothic lighting was far more common in things made in that decade).
Like with “Damania Retrofuturistic“, this comic also ended up being a lot more art-intensive than I expected. Although the art in this comic didn’t require the same level of digital editing as “Damania Retrofuturistic” did, each comic update still took me something like 2-3 hours to make!
