Webcomic description

Two girls dragged into a battle for the future…

As modern civilization crumbles under the yoke of a genetic supremacist organization, fae folk and demons begin to reemerge: some wish to aid in man’s struggle, others desire to bring mankind to its knees. From the ashes of man’s plight rise seven reluctant heroes imbued with the power to save, or destroy, all that exists.

Updates Friday, reads left to right, except older pages (Acts 6). I am working to replace them as fast as possible, and have expedited work on the revamp, which will update here at the completion of each act.

Please be forewarned: this comic has/will have nudity, sex, foul language, and violence. But! If these things are not something that make you uncomfortable, please come on in and enjoy the ride!

Dark Horse is the first installment of The Crystal Lotus Chronicles.




I am a big fan of manga, graphic novels, and comics in general. I have been hooked on comics since I was kid, and first introduced to anime through Sailor Moon. This was also my first manga in 1997. I received my Visual Arts BA from the University of Illinois at Springfield in 2010, and continue to work on improving my art.

Thank you so much. It's nice of you to say so. It's going to be fine, it'll just take time :)
I am really excited to work on this :3 I like the short stories because they force me to work on brevity and making good use of pages and panels.

Whether I achieve that or not, well, we'll see ;)

Also, thank you. It's okay. It's only life (this song has nothing to do with anything, but I love The Shins). But seriously...we're over the biggest hurdle since last trip I talked to the doctor directly, and he didn't jerk me around like he was Mom. If he's as bad as Mom is reporting...then she's going to get some help soon (I am disgusted with Medicare. But I've been disgusted with US healthcare since...well, college).

It'll be okay. This literally is a stage of life we all pass through. And one major consolation that I told Dad last time I was home...and he was asking what was going on...was that he's not going to remember this. So there's that.
I'm so sorry you are going through so much right now. Take the time you need. Looking forward to the updates when you get back.
I love the colors on this cover! I can’t wait to see this one-shot.

Sorry that you’ve been going through so much, BlueDragon.
Hey everyone! I know it's been a long time since I posted. I am stopping in to give you an update, and to tease a one-shot I'll be uploading here in July.

Brief Life Update:

This month I'm heading to my parents again. Our family will be meeting with a hospice nurse to determine how far my dad's dementia has progressed. Depending on what stage he is in, if it is decided he needs full-time care in the hospice, then the stress of direct care-giving will be lifted from my mom (and sister and myself). This will mean I will not need to travel every month and half to assist my family with is care/give them a much needed break (I will still be returning to visit, see what needs must be met, what calls need to be made, etc, but the schedule will be much less rigorous than it has been).

Should this be the case, I will possibly be able to pick up on Dark Horse. I will create a refresher page ("The Story Thus Far," who the characters are, a much shorter more concise timeline of events, etc), which will precede any continuation with the next chapter.

Should it be determined Dad is not ready for hospice care, I'll have to remain on hiatus until the time comes when he is moved into hospice care.

Regardless of my personal life, this July I am sharing a one-shot story sequence. This story is meant to help contextualize some of Rin's own personal feelings towards events that have come to pass, which are not being shown in the story proper (you know, having almost died twice now, she may act all happy go lucky, but beneath the surface, she's got a lot going on). The story is titled What Dreams May Come...? and will be featured in this summer's Comic Fury Zine (I won't be doing a comic for the Fall NSFW zine, and we had the space, so I decided I'd put together a one-shot for the zine, and to share here for you readers since we've been on hiatus so long).

This, unlike Night Hustle is canonical (not to say Night Hustle isn't, but it's a bit silly and was mostly just for fun).

One last update regarding Dark Horse: Battle Royal, the revamp chapter I've been working on, concludes May 20. However, as soon as I complete the last page of Battle Royal, I will update this website immediately! I'll do my usual blog update to let people know what's going on, but I'm really excited to have reworked a lot of those pages. While I am STILL working on action scenes, I *hope* you're able to see how much I've improved with backgrounds and character proportions! Aaaaand I took advice/comments/responses to those scenes and pages from you readers here when I reworked them. So I owe you all a HUGE thank you for all the support, comments, and constructive critiques/edits I've gotten over the years.

Thank you all! And thank you again for your patience. I hope you enjoy the one-shot coming in July.

Peace and Love,


(P.S. I have not missed any videos, but I don't feel it appropriate to share a bunch of videos with this message, so if you want to keep up with my projects, feel free to check out my channel. I try to be entertaining. Or at least instructional/helpful).
