Nominated for Best Comic at the 2016 Ledger Awards.
(Originally published in February 2015).
9779 is a short story featuring two parallel storylines.
The storyline on the left side of the page is set in the 1970s focusing on a young actress, who quits her job to raise her newborn daughter, in an effort to grant her a bright future.
The storyline on the right side of the page is set in the 1990s, where we see that bright future for her daughter, fully grown, as she pursues her dreams to become a singer.
Their lives are juxtaposed against each other, their downfalls pitted against their successes.
There's more to it than that, but hey, you don't need me to explain the nuances of this comic, why not buy it yourself? With 12 beautiful, full colour pages, it can be yours for just $6.00, and it even comes with a YouTube/Spotify Playlist!
