Well, in case you missed any of it, I thought that I’d collect all six comics from my “Damania Retroactive” webcomic mini series in one easy-to-read post. Links to lots of other comics featuring these characters can be found in the 2016, 2017 and 2018 segments of this page.
Surprisingly, I ended up making a narrative comic this time round (it’s been a few months since the last one of these). This was mostly because I was running out of enthusiasm/inspiration for self-contained comic updates. So, I thought that I’d make a time travel comic where Roz, Derek, Harvey and Rox travel back to the distant year of… 2017.
Although this mini series is self-contained, it is also something of a sequel to a few other narrative comics of mine. If you want to read up on the backstory, then read these mini series in this order: this one, then this one, then this one, then this one and then this one.
The initial inspirations for this mini series were some “post-modern” dialogue about the 19th century in a Christmas-themed episode of “Blackadder” and an episode of “Sliders” (called ‘Post-Traumatic Slide Syndrome’ where the main characters arrive in a very similar universe to their own).
Originally, this mini series was going to be a bit less “political”, but thanks to various shocking events in the news when I was preparing it (eg: the terrible far-right violence in America during August 2017) the mini series ended up being slightly more “left-wing” than I’d originally expected.
As usual, all six comic updates in this mini series are released under a Creative Commons BY-NC-ND licence. You can also click on each comic update to see a larger version of it too.
