Odd world. Odder residents.
Created by Clay "Harpeaux" L., of no particular fame.
The world of Spiddrelli
began as an idea in 2008, and has only recently gone into full-swing.
A thousand years ago, 10 scientists crash-landed on a primitive planet. They decided to stay to contain and control the native's discovery and use of their scattered ship's technology. In present day that task has been given to Century, an organization charged with making sure society doesn't blow it's own toes off.
The world has grown up with many of The Ten's creations: The majority of the world has been overrun by dense jungle canopy; numerous animal species have rose to sentience; and the key to immortality has been unlocked a dozen times over.
The original run started with 42 pages as typical black-and-white comic pages. (Pages 1-32 being made in Flash
,pages 33-42 being made in PaintToolSai
), with later pages being animated in Flash.
The latest and current run is completely made in Flash in a motion-comic format, with limited animation segments done sparsely throughout.
Spiddrelli moved from ComicFury
