About Softies

When the Earth just kind of explodes, the sole human survivor, Kay, becomes the world's youngest space debris. She's rescued from the vacuum by Arizona, an alien space-waste collector, and Euclid, his erudite cybernetic pet. Stumbling through a galaxy full of alien life together, they meet new faces, get in trouble, and say big words.

Softies is an episodic space-fantasy-comedy-angst-farce-adventure, which is a real genre. The comic is made up of story-based episodes of varying lengths and tone, which you can keep track of at the Archive. Be sure to check the Cast and Extras pages for more info!

Softies is "rated" PG. Or E10+. Take your pick.

Kyle Smeallie is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Kyle Smeallie has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. He has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. He was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Kyle Smeallie passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Kyle Smeallie.



Statement of Human Decency

The 21st century so far is, uh, scary.

Scary to the point that even consuming the silliest of media can feel like an exercise in making yourself vulnerable. It is a climate where we, understandably, have difficulty trusting one another as semi-strangers on the internet. So, while I hope it is assumed and self-evident in my work, I would like to explicitly pledge that I do not intend to promote hateful ideology or ideas. This includes racism, misogyny, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, antisemitism, or any other such things that could unnecessarily hurt my readers. If you think I haven't held up this pledge--whether in a major way or a minor way, whether intentionally or accidentally--please feel free to contact me in public or in private to explain the issue to me and I will attempt to address it.

None of us are perfect, all of us are real, and I'd like to hope that all of us are trying. Basically, I'm placing a "How's my Driving?" sticker on my #content, don't be afraid to call in and tell me I'm swerving off the interstate.
