This concludes the Prologue section of the Psychodyssey. Pat yourself on the back, you made it to the real thing. From here on out I will be updating once a week (every 5 days) with the hopes of eventually updating thrice a week.

Please take some time to check out this important news post for the enjoyment of this story. (which for some reason won't let put the link here.)

@Ian Evans: This is what the news post says anyways...

"The Psychodyssey was written in a style that contains heavy elements of parody, homage, and allusion. To achieve a fuller understanding and experience of the story, the afore mentioned elements must be taken into account. The majority of these elements are used from dizzyingly obscure movies, books, and TV shows. Although I could simply explain them all myself, I thought it could be a more enriching experience for my readers if they worked together to discover the parodies, homages and allusions within the story. So feel free to call out anything you see that could possibly be some kind of reference to something else (in the comments).

As you do, I will offer incentives for correct connections. Certain references will "unlock" character sheets, extras, and other pages that could be helpful to understanding the plot and characters of this story. Every correct connection made will also warrant a double update. So in theory you could make the comic update faster if you correctly determine the origin of the references. I will also keep track of how well everyone does on an individual basis, and will offer a prize for "he or she who gets the most stuff right." I thought this would be an alternative to patreon-esque rewards that are only available to people who pay money. I would rather see people enjoy these things for free.
Other tips: don't be afraid to ask me for clues
don't be afraid to ask a friend you know for pop culture knowledge

Thanks for reading my comic."

WE BEGIN IN A LAUNDROMAT

@TheGreenShyGuy: close. Ok, not really close at all. Is that from a movie or something?

All this kind of gave me an idea for a short comic where the first page is a complete scene, and each page after is the previous page, but with stuff added in, like the short film "Tango." https://vimeo.com/38580206

@jackgunski: I just watched that, really bombards the senses

I felt my heart tight through the pages, and a relief in the last page (I'm a kind of Clarence the optimist mood almost all the time, so I found it really intimate and shadowy). Bravo!

@AmeliaP: You're too kind Amelia! It was just the same image over and over again, haha. But Thank you it means so much to me. The art won't be so great for the next couple chapters, but I started this next chapter in 2008, like Kings Club... only I was 14 then

@Ian Evans: Even with the same image being used, your narrative trumps the resource. I like it! (2008 + 14... you're still very young ...And talented ^^)
