Comic description

A loving parody of the romance genre and yaoi but with burly men instead of bishie boys.

It's a prequel to my Smoke, Fur And Stone series but doesn't interfere with current canon.

Chasing Ice contains language, sex, occasional violence and LGBT relationships. Recommended for mature readers only.

First page of the Chasing Ice mini series - a comic that combines all the yaoi tropes and sparkles with a creamy bara center. Uh, yeah, I'm aware how that sounds....

Skoll giving Cal a very special kind of gift - his first glimpse at true winter.

From page 2 onwards, we swing into flashback mode chronicling Cal's early life and arrival at the Coven. Fasten your seat belts.

Notes: I've only seen snow once in my life when I was very young. So snowy landscapes and cold winters seem quite exotic to me.

The Chasing Ice mini series came about after I did a Yuri On Ice parody poster. This mini series is a prequel to my Smoke, Fur And Stone webcomic and doesn't interfere with the canon of the current story line.

Skoll's hands referenced from a stock image.

On my sister's recommendation, I watched the first episode of Yuri on Ice (despite the misleading title, it's actually a yaoi anime.)

It got me thinking about why there's no bara equivalent. Well, I decided to remedy that.

I couldn't resist doing a parody of yaoi conventions. The sparkles, the swooping romance and so on. All the things that make the genre so much fun.
Except in this case, the characters are big, burly men instead of pretty bishies.

But who says Skoll shouldn't enjoy sparkles just because he has chest hair and a bit of a belly?

Notes: It's also a bit of a send-up of posters for romance films and those inspirational Oscar-bait films (for some reason, the latter's posters always feature someone with their arms outstretched.)

Chasing Ice came about when I created a parody poster of Yuri On Ice. People liked the idea and I was overwhelmed by emails and messages asking me to develop it into a mini-series.

So here it is. This is also a prequel to my other comic, Smoke, Fur And Stone (from which I'm currently taking a brief break.)
