Marooned first appeared on my radar in the latest Webcomic Idol contest last year and instantly perked up my artistic sensibilities. The art harkened back to an era where detail was minimized and fun was the order of the day, and I was all for that. However, after reading only a few strips, Marooned departed my attention as quickly as it arrived and I’ve since lost touch with the strip.
But lo! What’s this? The first Marooned book is available for pre-order? I believe that would make it the perfect time to get reacquainted with this comic, then! The art has progressed from simplistic to being more deceptively so, offering just enough details and precision to offer an experience that contains more depth than the first strips did.
But what does this book contain? Why don’t I let Tom do the rest of the talkin:
After a year and a half of producing Marooned online, I’m proud to announce the release of my first book. Out of Orbit is suitable for all ages and is full of fun comics and spectacular artwork. It makes a great gift for anyone!
