Red String

I know that you've been asking yourself, "Where's the online romance comic? The kind where the story is the focus and not the humor? It's all the interblogs are missing!"

Ask no more, I present you with Red String.

From the FAQ:
Your comic isn’t manga!! Why do you draw “manga-style”? Why did you set it in Japan?
Nope, it’s a comic book series. As an American I create comics, not manga. Red String does not claim to be anything else. My art is influenced by many different artists and writers, both American and Japanese. My work reflects those influences. As for why I set my story in Japan, as an author, I find that if something interests me, I want to write about it. I am interested in Japanese culture. I have tried my best to write a tale as accurate as possible to the traditions and nuances of the culture. However, this story was primarily written for an American audience by an American author, so pacing and style will obviously be different from Japanese manga.

Here's where the first chapter starts.
