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. The webcomic iteration is free to read and normally updates Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays; all told, you’ll see one 10-page issue about every month for the length of our first storyline, “Exile.”

This is a project we’ve been working on for a while! We’re proud of the team we’ve assembled and the vision we’re presenting. There are a lot of fantasy comics out there, particularly in digital format–but we hope that in both style and substance we can offer something new. Something novel. Something that feels, well–like we said above, “alien and wondrous.”

Somewhere down the line, we’ll go more into why we chose this format (the team has created both digital and print comics before–with Violet Dawn, we’re going this route for a mix of creative and business reasons). If you’re interested in purchasing digital copies of the comic for your e-reader, we’ll have more on that soon, too; and we encourage folks to take a glance at our Patreon if you prefer to donate monthly. We’re going to need all the support we can get.

But! All that’s for the future. Right now we’re up and posting pages and just seeing what works. In the tech world, they call this a “soft launch”–we’re building up our readership even as we adjust things here and there.

If we’re lucky, it’ll be a long time before things stop changing entirely. Change is healthy. And Violet Dawn is all about change.
