*Coming REALLY Soon!*

Instagram post which reads: "What the {bleep} is Vulgar Vulgar? And when will I stop talking about it? (The answer is never)".Posted 09/06/2020

Welp, we've finally moved beyond the simple "Coming Soon" homepage, at least! That's right, I've gotten my act together and Vulgar Vulgar's ready (?) to start going up on the site. Why the (?)? Because I've got all the necessary work done start publishing, even if there's still art to be done and dialogue edits to be made. And a lot of inking. A LOT. I do love that part of the process though.

<< The announcement given to my lurvly instagram followers (click!).

Some context: I started making Vulgar Vulgar as part of my Semester One project in art college (it was an open project), and although it was just an improvised idea for a little while (with a couple of finished pages to show my lecturers I was trying!), very quickly I was like "hey, this could be printed!" Fast forward to now-ish, and Ireland's only just surfacing from its Covid-19 lockdown. With no talks of a Comic-Con set happen in this country for a long time, I figured making Vulgar Vulgar a webcomic is the best course of action! The other option's potentially waiting ages before anyone can enjoy the story.

And, hey, like I said in the post, I wanna do my bit to cheer folks up, because this has been a terrible year in a lot of ways. Vulgar Vulgar's not necessarily a happy story, but... it's something...?

Another update soon. Like, very soon.

Thanks for your interest in Vulgar Vulgar!

At the moment the site's in development, not to mention the comic itself. I want to fully complete this project before sharing it with you. That'll be soon. In the meantime, go check out either my Tumblr account (featuring the college project which served as a springboard for Vulgar Vulgar) and my Instagram (@coireallcarrollkent) for live updates.

Otherwise, park yourself here or slip in a bookmark. Keep up with the blog if that's your jam. Also check out the teaser-blurb below: this might be just the comic you've been waiting for.

Can't wait to see what you think.

Faceless. Speechless. Human?

 

You don't choose the world you are born into.


Dromie Lorenz has a problem. He can't share it; he can't express it. And it won't go away.

Two generations ago, Verticality assumed control over every life on Earth, modernising every brain to be fully connected to the world's technological landscape. Software exists for food, sleep and schooling. People identify each other using Infrared and voices are sent and received as signals. Gender is Nought or One. Life imitates Boole's Laws of Thought. And everyone's head is a square-based pyramid.

This is the world as Dromie's ancestor envisioned it, even if no one could have predicted the strange physical side-effects of tampering with evolution. The sex is weird and the dreams are weirder. But a drop of Chaos is about to fall. What is it? Dromie? His father? The kids that skip school and paint their heads? And? Or? Not? What is a drop to an ocean anyway?

Dromie Lorenz is human. What will it take for the world to believe him?

Vulgar Vulgar is Abbot's Flatland, if A. Square had kept searching for answers.
