About the Comic

Violet Dawn is an ongoing digital-first comic series from WayWalker Studios, telling the epic story of the realm of Avadnu. The Last People fled the legendary “world beyond” long ago; now, a young guardian leaves the only home he knows and discovers the true nature of an alien and wondrous land.

Launched in November 2018, the webcomic iteration is free to read and normally updates Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. The Violet Dawn setting was first published in a series of role-playing game books from The Inner Circle… but for now, this is what remains.

Louis Sollune, Artist
From the cold depths of Montréal, Québec and/or an accidental inter-dimensional portal, Louis Sollune grew up with French comic book heroes such as Astérix and Lucky Luke, which led him to draw his own comics at a young age. He later discovered American superheroes of Valiant, Marvel, and company, and has been drawing independent comics for 20 years, notably the massive graphic novel The Silver Cord, in between diverse creative projects including the odd portrait and even awkward stabs at poetry. Lifelong Star Trek fan, occasional video game enthusiast, and somewhat amateurish 3rd Kyu in the game of Go. See more art on his ArtStation and follow him on Twitter or Facebook.

Jeffrey “V” Visgaitis, Editor & Letterer
Jeffrey Visgaitis began conceptualizing the foundation of what would become “Violet Dawn” over twenty years ago. Since then he has run an award-winning pen-and-paper role-playing game company, worked as a miniatures designer and layout artist, and built Waywalker Studios. He manages production, editorial, and lettering for the comic. Despite not getting to work on Star Wars, he is still way cooler than Alex. Follow Jeff on Twitter or Facebook.
