Chaos Sword
A swordsman, with powerful and mysterious swords (each with a special ability), finds a scientist to help understand their power - and learn to control them. As fate schemes, the swordsman can't seem to escape trouble that forces him to violence. And the scientist, with his own traumatic history, doesn't ever seem truly be sober. Chaos Sword is an experimental genre exploration comic, orbiting an action-drama.

More About Chaos Sword

Chaos Sword was my first PLC comic, started in 2009. Despite the years, the story is just beginning, with much more to come. The art and writing changes considerably over the pages so far, but only for the better.

For hesitant readers, a good place to start is at Chapter 2, which just started. Both the cover stories and swordsman and scientist story start blooming. If that snapshot intrigues you, head back and start from Chapter 1.

Each sword has its own special abilities, one dominant and obvious, and others often hidden or subdued. Some of these are discovered, some only theorized. Each sword is a mystery, a puzzle to be unlocked, along with our characters and their relationships.

Chaos Sword was always intended, and continues, to be a genre bending and experimental comic. That is to say, the story itself is structured and our characters live in their story, but how that is told, in the medium of comics, shouldn't be easily presumed, and isn't easily defined. My other comic, the exciting hyper racing comic Road Bastards 2 , can be.
