Storms move closer. Rama and Laksman seek shelter amongst the Vanaras in the conclusion to Book 1
Getting off the bus at the wrong stop Rama and Laksman are in a dark part of the city far from any recognisable landmarks AND it’s getting dark.
Storms are approaching and they must seek shelter amongst the destitute and hungry Vanara, who gather under various elevated expressways away from their homes and communities in the Ayodhyan countryside in order to escape poverty and state violence.
Can Rama and Laksman make it through the night and get back home safely in one piece?
Find out in the exciting conculsion of Ramayana: The Thread of Luminance: AYODHYA, Issue 4: TRIAL OF ENDURANCE.

A VISITOR FROM ABROAD.
A VISITOR FROM ABROAD.
During the last two weeks I have been fortunate in meeting Melbourne comics personality Bernard Celeo who was visiting Phnom Penh where I am currently based.
It was great finding out about the Australian comics scene centred in Melbourne. I met Bernard twice and discussed politics, travelling and illustrative arts with him and fellow artist John Weeks. I enjoyed the showing of the 2012 documentary Bernard made in collaboration with filmmaker Daniel Hayward called "Graphic Novels! Melbourne!" focussing on the long-form comics - an opportunity to put faces to the many different styles of Antipodean creatives.
I had great time!
A SPECIAL THANK YOU TO MY PATRONS
Again your support has been amazing - breaking the second goal so I can spend even more of these emails to you. The next goal will take some work - it's to help pay for development of a printed edition, buying ISBNs and hiring talent (book designers, printed dummies etc) - so I still need you to tell your friends and family and drum up support!
On that subject of money it's great to finally earn something for my work, not only does Patreon allow me to do this, but it also develops and expands my relationships with like minded creators and fans.
If any of you are looking to earn a little extra income from the work that you love doing and connect with supporters. I wholly recommend you check out Patreon.
A CHANGE IN THE FREQUENCY OF FUTURE ISSUES
As Book 1 comes to a dramatic end, posing more questions than answers, you'll have to patient for BOOK 2: FOREST ISSUE 1. I'll be taking some time out to work on the refreshing of my website, where I will uploading the entirety of Book 1 for everyone and creating the new platform that will host my epic. This means that from now on Issues 5 - 50 will appear once a month to pace out the excitement.
Remember your support, even if is just reading and commenting on my work, will enable me to dedicate my time and effort to completing what has become a life time's work: Ramayana: The Thread of Luminance.
