Emily exists in a fictional, Republic of Sapphire. This setting acts as a place holder for Middle Eastern countries at war, which allows the story to comment on specific ideas without convolution of intricate politics.
The heart of the story is Emily’s coming of age. Diving into real world politics would have heavily distracted the story from this focus. There are simply too many plot lines of multiple warring factions to be contained within a 28 page comic.

We are toying with the idea of doing a little comic strip with her. I’ll post an update if we can get this to happen.
I’m still finding new things I didn’t know about the Kickstarter/self-publishing process everyday. The latest update is registering for an ISBN. While I am learning a lot, there is the feeling of one step forward and two steps back in the process. I wish I could magically get this book out right now, but it wouldn’t be done right.

Remember that time Emily shot the guy in the face?
You know, when she hit the eye shot.
Still not narrowing it down enough.
Remember… he had a gas mask on?
Hmm… Nope sorry, she killed so many of those… Wait! Oh yeah, that guy! What a tool.
Yeah, he didn’t have a chance.
The very talented Dre Thorne was kind enough to create a Pin-Up of Emily!
