PURG - A Web Comic
'Purg' - a
horror/cyberpunk story. by J, a Canadian freelance
illustrator, graphic designer, and now comic book artist.
Purg is set in 2040, in
a city that the kids nicknamed 'Purg' out of mutual hatred for
it. The world is a dark cyberpunk dystopia full of wondrous
and/or terrifying technology, psychotic deceitful global
corporations, riots in the overcrowded cities and marauders
raping and pillaging rural areas. The rich sit in their well
secured zones looking down on a city full of the lower class;
those not homeless and starving in the streets are sitting in
their shoddy homes hard wired into the ether, escaping the
horrors of the world around them.
Something stranger and
darker exists unknown to the common person - practitioners of
black magic, terrifying suicide and chaos cults, secret
societies, and creatures of nightmares. This story follows a
gang of "malc" (malcontent) teens who, during their foolish
but amusing adventures, discover that there is more to the
world around them, bizarre and terrible things, things even
worse than humans.
