Meet Vitam, who’s name literally means ‘life’. Something of which she seems to lack…she hasn’t spoken to another human face to face in nearly two years. Spending nearly 99% of her life hold up in her room Vitam has become a recluse for more then one reason. The first being her unshakeable lack of self worth and beauty. A childhood ailment causing a slight impairment of her left eye and in a world that holds personal beauty above all else this can be more of a hindrance them most think. It dosen’t help that her strange and overly obsessive nature seemed to draw others away rather then close Vitam has all but resigned herself to a life of nothing but freelance work from inside a small apartment alone. She yearns for the fantasy worlds she’s created to be true, to take her away from the world who rejects her. Until Mortem show’s up that is….
Just as his name would almost sugest Mortem is death. A we don’t mean that in the ‘oh he’s dark and troubled’ way. He is death..as in the horsemen. Who on route to collect our poor shut in’s life is tricked into giving her half his ungodly powers, forcing him to don the body of a human and only after he is able to Vitam that life is worth living (something that the bringer of nothing but death knows nothing about…as if that needs to be said) will he have his full power restored and is able to collect the soul of the young girl.
Just what can all the powers of the underworld and beyond do in the hands of a small, insignificant human? All she draws coming to life for one. With the power to see and do what other humans can not will Vitam use this new gift…for what little time she has it, for good? With the flux of power between the horsemen in utter chaos, the unseen unleashed onto the unsuspecting population of fleshy humans and illustration dead lines looming how the hell is Mortem going to collect one simple soul? And how will Vitam stay alive long enough to die? Her wish for her worlds to come alive might just be the last thing she truly wanted.
[YAY at last. With more art to be posted soonish I decided at last to write down the summary of my web comic! Which is FAR more epic then it was ever ment to be. It started out with a simple slice of life between death and a young girl…but that’s been done. Then I moved over to the MUSE idea with a girl having the ability to bring her artwork to life. But I had NO idea how to make that even happy…where their others with powers? What gave them the powers and why? And I had no answers….then came the epic gothic adventure, where death goes missing and the world is thrown into chaos as the horsemen fight for rank and all other unearthly creatures rise for power…but that was TOO much as the style it screamed for was just unavailable to me. SO I MIXED THEM ALL!
God help me….it’s ment to be a comedy mixed in with drama and social satire. To take an honest look at our world and then just utterly destroy it. Because I’m evil like that….
Anyway look forward to the first page…um soon? Within two weeks!
