CAKE DEBUT: Past Coasts by Jon Drawdoer
"Past Coasts" features queer characters in a psychedelic, literary sci-fi comic. A bubble ship glides above alien coastline. The ship breathes in and out. Regard your life as a passing memory. Listen to your mind underneath the surface of thoughts. Float in the pleasant calm of a universe that makes visual sense. It's just you and me now, reader. I've never stopped trying to understand you.
