Incredible Doom, my print & web comic series about ’90s kids making life-threatening decisions over the early internet, has a new issue up for everyone to read for free.
Issue #5, “Kaos” features jail time, Marvel cards, Nintendo Power tips, nighttime graffiti runs, and crazy law-breaking schemes. And you can read it now, totally free, here.
The feelie for this issue is a recreation of a scrap of newspaper that one of the characters draws on in the issue. The back side of the paper features an actual ad for a computer store from 1991!
If you join before October 19th you’ll get the new issue shortly thereafter. You can also catch up on back issues with the back issue bundle, which is half off for members.
Tomorrow (Saturday) is 24 hour comic day where cartoonists all over the world bust their butts to try to draw 24 pages of comics in 24 hours. That’s an incredible effort. I’ve done it a couple times before. It’s exhausting, but I love it.
I’m going to try something a little different this year. I’m going to draw backup stories for Incredible Doom, little glimpses into the world of the comic that we didn’t get to see in the regular series.
What did Sam’s dad and Allisons dad say to each other the moment after their kids drove away together in the station wagon?
Who was the first girl that Tina had a crush on and what was that like?
There was a hint that that there might be more to Ryan, the jerk from issue two who was torturing Richard but we different never really found out what. Is there more to be told there? I don’t know!
I’m going try to find out, by writing and drawing like crazy this weekend. These comics are going to be pretty rough, as is tradition for 24 hour comic day, but I think they should also be pretty cool.
So keep an eye on Patreon Lens or Instagram (where I may even try live-streaming) for updates.
I’ll post at least one comic for all patrons to read, and the rest of whatever I get done will go to the patrons at the $10 “Backup Story” level.
I’m excited. This should be fun!
By the way, Issue 5 should be hitting the mail for patrons next weekend. So if you want one become a member soon.
It’s been a blast drawing these comics. They are some of my favorite stories I’ve ever done, and the best part is you can get beautiful print editions of them sent to your house, just by becoming a member for $4 a month. (you can also buy back issues here to complete your set)
If you’d like to catch up, just click on the covers above to jump right to that issue. You can also be notified by email whenever there are new issues posted.
Here are some images from the series.
Incredible Doom is an ongoing print and web comic series about 90s teens making life threatening decisions over the early internet. It’s full of computers, dangerous stage magicians, young love, astronauts, and a desperate teenage need to connect with each other.
All of issue one is available to read online now on incredibledoom.com. It tells the story of Allison, her oppressive father, and the first computer she ever owned. Pages of subsequent issues featuring other characters will post every two weeks, culminating in a new issue being printed every two months.
The printed issues are something to see. With offset press covers and rounded corners, they are designed to look great lined up on your shelf to be enjoyed over and over again. You can buy issues individually or get them mailed to their door automatically if you are a member on Patreon. Members also get to read a full two months ahead of what’s posted publicly. Which means members can read all of Issue 2 right now.
I’m so excited for the future of this. My collaborator Jesse Holden and I have lots of great plans. I hope you’ll follow the stories as they progress and perhaps even support if possible.
If now isn’t the time to become a member I understand. Make sure to subscribe to the mailing list I’ll let you know the moment a new issue is available for everyone to read.
Thank you for being here.
