Comic description

Short version:

Mono and Lanya are bad girls. With the arrival of secretive yet regal sword expert Briony, they become worse.
Longer version:

My Husband Is Not Great is a story about what may or may not have happened before the events of Shadow of the Colossus, an iconic ps2 game that, as of E3 2017, apparently getting remastered for the 2nd time, this time for the PS4.

I started MHING many years ago possibly during a fever in the summertime when I didn’t have furniture in my house yet. I didn’t intend to create a deep fanfiction project I would fall in love with. I had absorbed upsetting rhetoric about fanfiction as a young artist; that it’s uncreative or not as worthy as original work or even silly. Since then I’ve watched beautiful fanfiction and fanart be created not just by its own community, but by people who are what I consider the moon, sun, and stars of their own creative properties. Make the art you love by expressing what you love; and as someone once told me, “Dante’s Inferno is self-insert Bible fanfiction where the author meets his idols”.

Mono is a vocally impaired young woman in a strange religious village, and a practical joker; Lanya is her sword-loving, internally screaming best friend who lives by juggling expectations that aren’t hers. Briony is a slightly heartbroken but well-traveled wanderer whose last job had a certain amount of painful luxury to it. My Husband Is Not Great is about their families, friends, loves, and hates, and what flaws are acceptable and aren’t.

Part of the draw for me in making a Shadow of the Colossus prequel is that there are three named human characters in the original work, which employs a show-not-tell philosophy of storytelling that was like magic to me. What is shown, is hinted at, and that makes what isn’t seen as mysterious and powerful as the giants you spend the adventure chasing, climbing, stabbing, being bodily thrown from, and somehow surviving. The rest of MHING‘s cast are either my own creation or inference from non-named characters appearing in key scenes in the video game.

Thank you for checking out my fan-comic of one of the greatest video games I have ever played.

Welcome to My Husband Is Not Great! I don't know how to schedule uploads, but for now Thursday and Saturday are page update days. I don't know how to feel about making people wait days for a page for a long-form webcomic that might not have an audience--even though the video game Shadow of the Colossus was very recently remastered a SECOND TIME, it is over a decade and a half old.
If you're reading, I hope you like this story! I put a lot of raw emotion and fever dreams into it and it was fun to make.
