Comics / Graphic Novels
by Chris Collins
For eight years I drew ink comics in tiny sketchbooks and posted them on the Internet. I compiled over 200 of my favorite comics, illustrations, and scribbles from the series to create my book Nonsense Thoughts: 8 Years of Comics, Inspiration, and Ridiculousness, which is now available for free online! Within the pages you’ll find humor, insights, and much more. Nonsense Thoughts started as an ongoing comic series on tumblr, but grew into many zines and books.
Paranormal Petunia is a supernatural thriller graphic novel. The story follows Petunia, a paranormal private eye who investigates odd and unbelievable mysteries. It is available to read online while I work to finish the rest of the graphic novel.
In The Depths is a short sci-fi comic using minimalist/geometric digital illustration paired with sprawling space scenes. It can be read in one sitting for free online. Included is a custom soundtrack for the story, which hopefully adds to the emotional impact! A limited-edition printed version of this story will be available at local conventions.
