A little background: Once
upon a time two friends were sitting around thinking of what to do the next
weekend. One suggested "Hey let's make a crappy sci-fi film."
The other said "Yes, let's.
And we can use hairdryers and smoke bombs for props."
Armed with a twenty dollar bill,
some clay, and a can or two of spray-paint they were well on their way to making
something that could be embarrassing for years to come. The two enlisted
many a friend to help them. But low, the plot became too big
for a twenty minute gag.
One day, before they could begin to
film, the two friends found themselves in the back seat of a van on the way to
an amusement park. One friend remembered suddenly that she drew comics.
Thus the thing you now see is Project Toren, a graphic novel with sections done in comic form and others in written
form. It started as a spoof on sci-fi/fantasy clichés and ended up
including all our addictions from monsters and the paranormal all the way to pirates. The
first issue of Toren was done many odd years ago.
