The First Time

  • by

A short comic detailing my first drug experience, way back in 1995. 

There are a lot of concessions I’ve had to make to squeeze this story into 5 pages, and I’m not quite happy with it. I’ve done my best to focus on character, and utilised a few of the tips from John Truby’s Anatomy of Story– in particular, focusing on the protagonist’s moral weakness, as well as a strong antagonist. The story is only 5 pages, but there is a definite beginning, middle, and end, with the chance for at least a degree of character change.
