Taking up the mantle of the red cloak and leather, those selected to join The Firewatch are the Realms' guardians. Protectors and heralds of the wildfire that eats away at the northern borders of the Five Realms every year, members of the Firewatch spend their lives surveying and tending what delicate life there is in the region's harshest climate.
All life is precious to the Firewatch.
On October 4-5, 2018, COMICKAZE Comics Books and More in Point Loma, CA hosted a 24-Hour Comic Challenge.
The challenge? Create an entire comic book within a 24-hour period. armed with piles of bristol board, pencils, ink, and coffee Jessica and Patrick set to work on what would become The Firewatch. Leading up to the event, we raised money to support University of California, San Diego's Center for ALS Research and Therapy. At the closing of the event, we were left with 26 pages of bristol in which to scan.
We have decided that in order to remain true to the spirit of the event, the linework of the comic has not been changed. The only additions made in post, were the lettering and the selective red to enhance its pages.
