This is a teaser for my new short comic, “Sing the Moon Down” which will start being posted online at the completion of “Stolen.” I have been working hard on it for the past two and a half months or so. “Stolen” should finish with updates at the beginning of October and “Sing the Moon Down” will pick up from there with weekly updates.
“Sing the Moon Down” is a modern fantasy comic that follows the story of a shy and awkward female-to-male transgender witch who opens up a small town medicinal clinical and uses his skills to aid the local werewolf who wrestles with issues of self-identity.
Look out for this tale in the beginning of October!
I’ve had the fortune of being able to see the progress of this and other comics by this artist and let me tell you, holy shit.
There is nothing more that I could ask for in terms of representation that this comic does not give. Without giving the elements of the story away anymore than Misterloki did. It is the werewolf who is dealing with his own issues of identity, which parallel from what the main character has experienced via their own experiences and transition.
I am passionate about trying to promote these kinds of stories because I seriously feel that this is what is lacking from main media sources. This is a feel good fantasy story that also has significant meaning. Misterloki creates these deeply fleshed out characters that are queer, people of color, and transgender. His stories really break away from the normative that so many are tired of seeing.
In short, please check out the work of this artist because I genuinely feel it is something special and is wholly what I wish was shown in mainstream media.
Thank you so much! I can’t even begin to describe how much your comments mean to me. I set out writing comics with a goal in mind. I want to make stories that I wish I had as a kid, with positive LGBT and racially diverse characters with fantasy twists thrown in. I have a pretty big comic line up with short comics written until June of next year, so I hope to continue producing short stories that LGBT identified people and allies alike can enjoy!
I am pretty adamant about writing feel good comics with, in general, happy endings. There are enough tragic endings currently portrayed in media and I want to showcase a different point of view, one with positive, accepting and triumphant roles for LGBT characters. I also strive to create stories where the character’s LGBT identity is not the end-all-be-all of their story, where it is just one of many factors that make them who they are. I seek to try to challenge and diversify the roles that LGBT characters are given in my comics.
Anyways, thank you to everyone who is reading my work so far and for giving me your support.
yes all of the above. Kez is really amazing and committed to bringing diverse representation to the comics he creates! Not only does he cover a variety of queer identities, but also makes sure that there are POC represented as well. None of it is tokenism. It’s all legit.
I helped him do some research, AND have been lucky enough to read part of “Sing the Moon Down,” he’s going great places!
