“QUASAR BLASTERS” is the daily comic strip I drew for the Brown Daily Herald (Providence, RI / 1994-1997).
It was the first serious long-term comics project I ever completed, and I learned SOOOOO MUCH over three years of balancing college homework & nightly deadlines.
Well, okay — Maybe “balancing” isn’t quite the right word…
FIRST EPISODES (by season):
You can see how my art style changes over 3 years of daily strips…

“The adventure begins!”

“In the middle of the Lac-Phi civil war, Jules heads down to the surface in search of a job.”

“Sylvie and Chester try to keep out of trouble in Orbit Station Lancer, but they’re in for a big surprise….”
SEASON 4 (Spring 1996): Sylvie’s Gambit
“As the Federal Galactic Navy closes in, Sylvie makes a last-ditch attempt to save the orbit station.”
SEASON 5 (Fall 1996): Desperate Times
“Chester wakes up in the brig of Orbit Station Lancer, prisoner of Captain Reeves! Meanwhile, down on planet Rica, Jules and Sylvie look for a lift….and find danger at every turn.”
SEASON 6 (Spring 1997): Endgame
“The explosive grand finale! Jules & Sylvie desperately try to reach Chester, but their violent past is catching up with them…”
