This is a world torn apart by restless ghosts and spirits: Mediums– those who can connect to and talk to the dead–are incredibly valuable and incredibly dangerous. Most medium children are raised their entire lives in a Parafacility to learn how to control their gifts, the dangers of possession, and experimented on learn how to find a way to fight the ghosts.

Soil that Binds Us follows the adventures of a few fugitive teens who can talk to ghosts and their journey to stop the world from becoming completely undone by the undead.

I started developing Soil That Binds Us when I was 17 as a fun way to pass time with friends by making characters. Eventually I started writing it, and I finally began drawing it when I was 19. The entire story is already written out, word by word! its all a matter of pushing out the art now. It's an extremely personal story to me about empathy, the power of fear, and emotional vulnerability.

NIGHTPOOL helped me code this!! they're wonderful!!!!!!!!!!! i love them!!!!
