THE STORY: In the early 1900s, the nation of Aetheri came out of its long interdimensional isolation and revealed to the humans of the Symphony Archipelago that they were not alone in the multiverse. Things swiftly got ugly after that.
In the early 1990s, Aetheri’s leadership changed, and in the Archipelago, a tiny broken family of half-siblings banded together in the face of the bile and hate that was boiling up between the humans and the non-humans.
In the early 2000s, that family was split apart. Hawk Press and his sister Liya Kiski both begin a long and exhaustive journey towards understanding the difference between friend and enemy–and between the family you’re given, and the family you make.
THE AUTHOR/ARTIST: Adrien Lee (aka thephooka) is a 29-year-old queer trans dude from a town populated only by orange groves, abandoned suburban housing projects, retired Dodgers fans, and alligators. He graduated from the University of Central Florida with a degree that doesn’t exist anymore, and now lives in Portland, Oregon with a sweet dog and an obnoxious cat. When he isn’t making comics about queer monsters, he is thinking too hard about cartoons and drinking too much coffee.
White Noise is his first foray into comics.
