Full-Spectrum Therapy

by alkaplan
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.

**Content Warning: this comic deals with themes and imagery concerning suicide, self-harm, drug use, and sex. It's PG-13. Ish.

Aaaa I've been reading this comic since like 2015, I can't believe it's over but congratulations on finishing such a huge project! Do you have any other projects planned for when you're done with the editing?

C'est Fini!
Thank you again for everything.

As a final bit of housekeeping, I would like to say that over the next few months, I will be editing back over these 580 pages to get this comic ready to sell to a publisher. Wish me luck! I intend to keep it up for free to read online, and I will update this space with any information about publication. You can also keep up with me on Twitter, Tumblr & Instagram @alkcomics for more artwork and future projects.

In the mean time, I will be offering a limited amount of print copies of Chapter 10 for sale in my shop. I am offering a custom slipcase and limited print set with the pre-order purchase of the complete book set, or with just with book 10 (for those of y'all supporting me by purchasing books as they come out).

Pre-orders will be open from July 15th-August 15th. Neither the slipcases nor the prints will be available for purchase online after this time frame. I will also not be keeping reliable book or merch stock after August 15th, so if you've been waiting to pick something up, now's your chance!

Please see the Etsy listing for images and more info

If you've made it this far and are interested, here' s a playlist I made on Spotify for working on the comic

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

ANNOUNCEMENT!
Y'all! Guess what? There is one more page left after this. I decided to end on a double-spread, so don't forget to come back Wednesday for the second half :)

ALSO, the announcement I was hinting at before is that I made special slipcases and two new prints that will be available for FREE with the PRE-ORDER purchase of either the COMPLETE book set (1-10) or just Book 10 alone (for those lovely, lovely readers who have been collecting the books as they come out <3).

Neither the slipcase nor the prints will be available for purchase online after the pre-order period closes (July15-Aug15). I will also not be keeping reliable book stock after Aug15, so if you've been waiting to pick up the books (which contain edits not found online), then this is your chance!

Here's the listing on my Etsy.

Thank you all so, so much & see ya Wednesday!

@guest: I exaggerated it here for comedic effect, but I always hear Quin with an atrocious accent in French when I write his dialogue lol

plot twist, endgame ship is actually Kappy and Day lmao

k but actually "on anglay see te play" is EXACTLY what speaking French in your anglophone accent sounds like

Howdy! Thanks for sticking around! The final page goes up on Wednesday, July 17th. I've been working on some goodies for the limited print release of the final book. More news on that to come in the next updates!

For now, here's a sneak peak:

Wow! I just found this comic a few days ago and have been binging it. I can't believe I'm caught up and there are only a few pages left. This is definitely one of the best written/superbly executed/most wonderfully drawn comics ever. Thank you for making this!
