Webcomic description

The ongoing story of Dr. Seito Akai, scout and scientist for the Imaja Order, a collective of self-made techno-gods who sought to bring order to the universe and left ashes in their wake. He searches through the remains of his peoples' fallen empire and deals with the unexpected repercussions of an ancient conflict that the Order had tried to forget.

I am a storyteller. Whether it’s through illustration, drawing comics, or writing; and while my preferred medium is digital, my style is firmly rooted in the pen-and-paper aesthetic of comic books.
My subjects and stories tend towards the fantastic: robots, gods, talking animals, strange creatures and extraordinary people; whether exploring alien environments in far-flung worlds or exploring the quirks of human nature in more mundane settings. While I often tell these stories through an outsider’s perspective, I don’t forget that my characters are people in their own way, with their flaws and often-contradictory motives that make them all more human than any one of them would like to admit.
We all have our own gods and aliens and monsters inside of us; I hope that my stories will be a mirror through which we can view ourselves in a new light.

I've been on a bit of a hiatus. I'll be getting things started again soon.

“Comics...”
I think he just got distracted, or lost the feel for it.. I'm not sure. I'll have to ask him next time I see him online.

Pity that this ended here. Interesting/fascinating setup so far, quite some questions open (e.g. will the delicious nutrient wavers improve the master's mood?), but not too much. Doesn't look like it ran into a cul-de-sac. What happened to this comic?

Now where have I put my colorful nutrient thingies, I need them to improve my mood.

Very much so.
Quite the vicious bug indeed.
