Maxim by oomizuao Maxim by oomizuao
I found an old comic in one of my many ring binders, and decided to re-draw one of the pages. Here's the (quickly drawn) result.

Maxim, or Max as he prefers to be called, is the younger brother of Ray. When Ray one day decided to leave their country for a better life, he begged his beloved brother to come with him, but Max didn't want to, because he had a best friend, Jack, and was in love with a girl called Alys. And he felt he needed to look after his mother whom he doubted could take care of herself.
Alys, Max's one big love, committed suicide not too long after Ray had left (it had nothing to do with Ray, though), so now Max is praying for his brother to come home and take Max and Jack with him to a better place.

Oh come on, Internet... the first time it was album "In The Rain" by neofolk band Sol Invictus, the second is some chinese comics or manga about a resurrection of a kitten and now this! Why? Why do you want me to cry, weep, moan?! I'm 22 years old male, at last!..

Awwww, such a sad story, but I really love how you do your facial expressions. And I have to admit Max is extremely cute. I do hope that Ray comes to check on him soon, and takes him away as Max is praying for. He certainly can't be left there!
