Banes at 12:00AM, April 13, 2017



HAPPY THURSDAY!


The comedic premise is very much the same idea as a premise in any other genre. It's got the same elements…Character, goals, themes, conflict…

Numb by NiinaEveliina

Numb is a mysterious tale of three long term friends, Susan, Levi and Tim. I really can't say too much as it would spoil the comic for you,
