“ALPHA FLAG is the story of an unnamed diver who washes ashore near a small, mostly uninhabited settlement on the Svalbard archipelago. He has no idea who he is, or even how to communicate with the few people he manages to find. Where he’s from is a distant concern as he struggles to become a complete person.

Who is CHARLIE? Can the diver trust him? More importantly, is he even real?”

So that’s what this deal’s about. I really like the story, and I hope you guys will too.

ALPHA FLAG is going to start out weekly, published on Thursdays. I’m playing that release schedule by ear. If it’s a bit too light, I’ll add another day. No promises! The first page will be on January 20th, 2011. How futuristic is that? Now I wish this were a sci-fi comic instead. Too bad, self.

I’m Jon Cairns, by the way. I’ve written and am drawing this comic and I’m farming out coloring to my friend Renee Keyes. I’ve got a couple comic collaborations I run with friends on the side, and I’ll make sure to keep you guys abreast of those, too.

So, see you soon.
