signal boost – Laya: A Set of Fictitious Revolutions (mortega / barrera)

Laya can be found here: http://layakomiks.weebly.com/index.html

This comes highly plugged by Tepai Pascual, and with good reason. Laya is an orphan in an alternate 1890’s on the verge of revolution. She is forced to work as a prostitute for a woman, until a mysterious Dr. M comes into the picture and takes her into a fight she is not sure she should be part of. She just knows she has to get away.

The last time I saw art this masterfully incredible for a local komik, it was Tabi Po. The pacing of the narrative and the dialogue needs smoothening out, but in general it’s a great first chapter from a new writer and illustrator.
