Alma candle hand

Alma's arm just keeps melting...

but that's one of the less-weird things going on in deep-space town Danicus, where secrets are plenty, meal replacement juice is the hot thing, and the Mayor talks a lot about the speculative physics of space whales.

Waxfellow is a queer sci-fi drama
webcomic for ages teen+

Alma (they/them) has a keen interest in exploring the outskirts of Danicus and learning the strangely unkept history of The Aldier, the long-range ship that carried their ancestors into the stars.. Instead of a quiet time filled with old journals and logs, they stumble into a century-old game of hide and seek full of dangerous players and impossible-sounding magic.
