Full-Spectrum Therapy

A queer, supernatural body-horror drama about a group of teenagers living in the aftermath of an alien invasion.

Troubled teen Damien Aattou was looking for a way out -- instead, he found a new way to let "Them" in. His persistent admirer and childhood best friend, Quin, vows to help him, but while doing so attracts the unwanted attention of their school's rookie Empath -- a specialized paranormal professional. Accompanied by Quin's unrelenting ex, Tayler, and her bandmates, the boys must dodge blame for the recent flux of alien outbreaks around town while trying to mend their troubled relationship and find solace.

Ugh Dermitt is totally the guy I was stuck being around all four years of high school because our last names came consecutively in alphabetical lists.

--and that's it for Chapter 5! Thanks for sticking with me! As I mentioned before, I'm going to be taking a two week hiatus before Chapter 6 in order to tighten up the script for the second half of the story, ready chapters four and five for print, and build up a backlog. Chapter 6 will begin Monday, June 5th!

As always, feel free to send in questions, comments or sketch requests to my askbox on Tumblr, and follow me on Tumblr and on Twitter for sketches and color illustrations in the interim!

Also, my Etsy store has art prints as well as print copies of the first three chapters. I'll have print copies of chapters four and five up this summer!

AND CHECK OUT THIS AWESOME FANART from fellow comicker Steph (whose lovely work can be found here)! She captured. them so well <3

Here's the spread version of these two pages:

**Double Update** Be sure to check back to the previous page to catch them both!

(This page is the first half of a two-page spread, so if the background panels are a bit obscure, hold tight)

Next week will be the end of Chapter 5 (!!!), and I'll be taking a two-week break from updates to make sure that Chapter 6 comes out a little smoother, and to prep Chapters 4 and 5 for print.

**Chapter 6 will start JUNE 5th!

Here's the spread version of this and the next page:
