Emily Carroll’s Fallout 4

Nine short comics (NSFW)

I started making these four panel comics in April, having completed drawing a 380pg graphic novel at the end of March. Based on moments from my replay of Fallout 4, I figured they would be an low-pressure way to reconnect with making comics for myself. They ended up becoming a vessel for feelings of loneliness, depression, and frustration that I was struggling with. By late May I had stopped, having since moved on to more personal work.
