The pilot episode for this comic is a more than year old, which was my second entry in the Yen Press New Talent Search. I just started doing the continuation of it recently, because I wanted to expand on the lore of the world.
The comic itself is about a young girl, who lives in a scarcely populated world, where the life expectancy is about eight years old. She was lucky she could make it to live to age fourteen. Because the Grey Death plagues the land, the once industrious steam punk world left the machines unattended and unused, factories shut down, and houses abandoned. (No one is left to operate them!)
With a vast majority population dying prematurely, they have unfinished business left in the material world. Instead of going straight to the afterlife, their souls transform into "Lone Naughts", deadly creatures that further the death toll in this world. Ruby has very few allies, only her deceased "mother", her deceased REAL mother, and her uncle, a retired priest who studies medicine.
