So, what the title says. I have been through some tough stuff these past few months  and this is my (hopefully) positive response.

Anyway, one thing I connected with my older sister on as kid was comics. She recently had a brush with death, and although we have a not great relationship, I want to revisit the thing we connected over. It's supposed to be cathartic. 

So, I'm drawing up some comics. They feature characters somewhat based off of real people I know. Every name has been changed.

If you like, please comment. If you hate, please comment. Just please comment!

Oh, and I know the drawings are simple- you're looking at limited skill here, hopefully after a while these'll be more visually appealing. For now, I hope the slightly Green Day related storylines will carry it. 

If you want to read some amazing, professional comics, please read Hyperbole and a half by Allie Brosh, and/or Pearls Before Swine, by Stephan Pastis. These are amazing. So amazing. Totally, completely amazing. This is amazingly redundant. 

Anyway, here is the first strip of the webcomic 'Sons and Daughters of Rage and Love'. Enjoy.

I don't have much to say but you said comment so here I am. I can't relate to this one at all since I know hardly any of those lyrics.... ok none, but what's cathartic is cathartic. You do what you enjoy, and I'll be sure to read whatever you post cause I like the idea a lot. I also love pearls before swim as well. Hoping your sister is ok

Thanks for commenting. She's OK now, as far as I know. Oh, just for the record, the last panel has the lyrics to 'Reject'!

I'm glad you like the idea, too, and pearls before swine.

I'm hoping the actual strips will be more relatable/make more sense as time goes on. Thanks!

This is a really good start. The characters are nicely connected by how they relate to music, even though they're all fans of something different. Making art because it's cathartic is a great motivation, too! Check out Skin & Earth by Lights - she's a musician who just released her first comic. She has a lot of good advice for young comic artists, and the comic looks really good.
