Old Comics - Factor 8: a boy and his alien

When I arrived at RISD for my sophomore year, I wrote and illustrated a comic for the Brown/RISD Independent, a student a paper that had both schools' names on it, but was mostly put together by Brown students. Factor 8: a boy and his alien was about a boy who helps an alien escape evil aliens who are hunting him down. The boy also had hemophilia. I was coming off of my first summer working at the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp and was greatly impacted by the experience. The strip run for a year in the paper, until I brought everything online and the comic existed as a web comic for an additional year.

I adapted the comic to be a picture book in an independent study with one of my professors. It would be my first picture book and last comic, until . . .
