The Agrippa Comic, a dystopic near-future tale

Some of you may have been following my comic book, Agrippa, online.

“Agrippa” is a dystopic near-future tale that takes place in an unnamed industrialized nation very much like the United States. When foreign creditors demand that the nation repay its considerable international debt or face war it enacts the Dulcetta Reforms, ultra-restrictive laws establishing debtor’s prison, and causing a large number of people – many of them seniors – to go to jail or even face execution if not continuously working to pay off their personal debts to the government. Dr. Tine, an expert in geriatric medicine, is desperately searching for employment at the beginning of our tale, having lost her useful functioning in society as the elders she once treated were rounded up and hauled off to the prison camps. Things were so bad she didn’t think they could possibly get any worse. How very wrong she was.


The Video

This is less than two minutes long. It’s the introduction to the story “Agrippa”, from “Things That Go Bump In My Head”, with the illustrations from the first two pages of the comic book project

The Comic Book Online

You can follow Agrippa online at, here:

The Book

The finished product should be about 30 pages. That’a the cover of it (above). I’ve decided to come out with a full exterior/interior 8 x 10 comic book which will cost about $5.00.

  1. Your comic looks really good.

  2. I like what you guys are up too. Such smart work and reporting! Keep up the superb works guys Iˇ¦ve incorporated you guys to my blogroll. I think it’ll improve the value of my web site :).See

    • Dear Spambot,

      Thank you! There really aren’t any guys here – just this one gal, me, but I like to say “we” so it seems like I have a staff of more than one. I am glad you think my reporting on my own online comic, Agrippa, is smart! Smart reporting sounds a lot better than “blatant self-promotion”. Speaking of self-promotion, “Agrippa” is a story from my short story anthology, and for only $10 plus SH you can buy a signed copy of it, for in the future, when I become a famous blogger with millions of spambot fans. All the spambots who do not own a signed copy of “Things That Go Bump in My Head” will be missing out, so buy it, spambot! Buy my book before it is too late. And in the near future, when my comic book “Agrippa” comes out in print, buy that too. Thank you spambot – have a nice day.

  3. I think this internet site has got some real superb info for everyone. “The human spirit needs to accomplish, to achieve, to triumph to be happy.” by Ben Stein.
