Episode 1: Pilot
This was originally titled “When Jack Met Lillianna,” that is until I started reading other webcomics that it’s pretty much how 50% of them begin.
While I don’t remember the moment the idea for this series came to me, I can say it would never have happened without a moment similar to the one portayed above. It is a confusing, exhilirating moment when your boss enters your gray, uninspired cubicle and says “here, I’ve brought you this beautiful young woman.” Consider the fact that I am not what you would call a dedicated employee (entered into evidence: 40 or so comics drawn at work), choosing me, an old and only somewhat attractive/sexy dude, to train anyone made it all the more peculiar. Does this prove the existence of a higher power? I’ve no choice but to conclude— perhaps.
At any rate, the language of this project, from format to medium to conent, are all dedicated to my real life Lillianna, for brightening up my cubicle and reawakening long abandoned talents. This work is not so much a gift for her as it was her gift to me.
