This is the artists’ first collaboration together in art. Their previous collaborations included outings and adventures in dark, neon-lit locations, but never the production of art on paper.
The duo realised they wanted to depict an adventure into the night, a chance meeting with darkness and a change that ensues after, and that is how Saturdaze came about.
From an alley to the dancefloor, follow the protagonist through battle and a life-changing experience. Through sequential art, they weave a story that is both somewhat personal yet open enough for readers to interpret as they please.
