THE GRAPHIC NOVEL

It Remains is a Graphic Novel in-the-making, written by author Vasil Tuchkov & drawn by digital artist Ed Mattinian.

Inspirations: Neil Gaiman’s “Sandman”, "Lucifer", Giger, Beksinsky, Cormac Mcarthy’s “the Road”, Brian Evenson’s uncanny work, Jeff Vandermeer's otherworldliness.
Genre: BEYOND DYSTOPIAN / ODD / ABSTRACT Abstract

Premise: Father & Son at World’s End

In a world at the end of its cycle, a world perhaps much like ours, the only things left are sand, bone and plastic. And at the center of it all - a mysterious swallowing pit, which few local survivors refer to as the Yellow Mouth. Amid a thousand lost civilizations, the Yellow Mouth slowly drags everything on the surface towards its insatiable shores. The thick and oily yellow mass wobbles patiently for all that is to come. Nothing escapes It, only the rare few Resisters left manage to withstand the call of Yellow Mouth. Only these two – father & son - resist its pull. For now, anyway. It & It - father and son, walk the walk in search of meaning, struggling to preserve definition - as the last remaining archivists of the old knowledge, walking remnants of a world on the brink of erasure.
Each day It & It walk in the opposite direction of the Yellow Mouth. They eat, talk and walk only so much, as when they stop to sleep, to awaken before the shores of Yellow, and not beyond them. Each day It and It Walk the Walk. Each day It & It resist.

Manifesto

Plot: RESISTERS

It & It. Father & Son against the current. The Old and the young - two Resisters modifying their bodies by dipping into the Yellow Mouth and fusing with foreign objects as part of their new flesh. The attachments, they call Addings, can just as easily be detached by dipping again into the yellow. But beware, too many Dippings and the Addings shall take over, and weigh down on a Resister, eventually turning it into a Sitter.

PROJECT WITH A CAUSE

The world of “It Remains” is shaped by vestiges of а fallen civilization - humanity’s plastic debris junkyard. Set in beyond dystopia, appearance and characters in this universe are inspired by real-life environmental issues such as plastics and industrial pollution. For that reason, we plan to spread awareness and promote community-voted causes, committed to finding plastic alternatives, better plastic waste management, and provide support for the homeless. Become a holder and help us pick the right projects to support
