Ad Astra- History of the World
When I began Ad Astra, I decided I needed to set the scene with a history lesson. Ad Astra is set in the future, at a time when humans are spread over a large portion of the galaxy. How they got there and what happened afterwards is what this is all about. Using the planet Atlas as a more-or-less typical example of what happens on what I call the Exile Worlds.
For whatever reason, I started this off in grayscale, I guess I thought it would give it a kind of newsreel footage feel. It's actually harder working in gray than it is in color, I found.

I uploaded it as a cbz file for CDisplay or other comic readers, but it was converted back to a zip file...

OK, downloaded it, and it opens without any issues. I haven't tried it on my Zoom yet, but it should work fine. I'm going to post the download link over on the V&V Forums, Atomic Think Tank, the Monkey House Games Forums, and Superbuddies.

If your reader needs a .cbz file to read all you have to do is change the file extension from .zip to .cbz

OK, I missed it the first go round. I see it now.

I tested it and the zip file can be read in CDisplay on the pc or in comic glass on the iPad. Haven't tested that in comic zeal or any other readers.

There should be a button there to download the file.

That is a pretty cool shot of the comic. the last panel with the warrior princess is a good one as well.

If you download the zip file, it's the whole first part of Ad Astra. I just found you can read the zip file in my comic reader on my iPad, without changing the file type, and in CDisplay on the PC.

Cool. unfortunately, I won't download anything,though.

Who's the warrior princess in that last panel, and it's funny I never felt as comfortable with a person with that much hair.

I never named her. From her look, I'm pretty sure that I intended her to be one of Valkyrie's psycho dames.
I like long hair, but it doesn't have to be that long.
