Adrast is a black and white screen-toned free-to-read graphic novel that follows two storylines based in the fantasy world of Animus. It is a magic based world deep within a war with a dedicated group of hunters known as The Council and monsters of nightmares known as Efahs.

In one of the stories we follow a man named Jacob who is sent to the town of Willowbury to kill an Efah by the name of Hallow. To Jacob's surprise, the Efah is just a 7 year old boy who just adores cake and shows Jacob around. After a great battle Jacob is left with the decision to kill the child or take him under his wing. But doing so, the act of not following direct orders forces him to face the dire consequences.

On the other hand we follow Alice, an independent female protagonist who seeks the dangerous life of a huntress. In her hometown of Willowbury, she meets a conceited teenage boy named Kynan, who continues to belittle Alice as a Huntress. In a stroke of bad luck, the duo is forced to travel together to an academy in Caliga, where Alice will gain the skills needed to hunt and kill efahs to protect her friends and family.

The two plotlines eventually intersect, both having equal goals for their destinations. Throughout their journey they will have to travel and fight for their lives, correcting the wrongs they have committed.


Adrast was first written in 2012 for a roleplay plot which Jesi and I created, formerly known as Nightmare Wearhouse- which I (Mimi) accidentally misspelled. The story was adapted into the first version of the comic, only being a bonus for the followers but wasn't taken completely seriously because in a sense it wasn't supposed to be a webcomic series to begin with. But after much story development and the gain of a new writer; Karla, Jesi, and I (Mimi) had began creating the story seriously in 2013, being renamed to Adrast and revising the whole story. Many followers from the Roleplay allowed their characters to be cameoed within the comic, such as Alyk and Marco.

After nearly half a year of redrawing and revising the plot about 2 to 5 times, I finally decided to stop (not really more like jesi told me to stop) revising the plot and take on a new method of creating the comic pages. TRADITIONALLY! Even though there has been many bumps, and LONG hiatuses, I am on the right track of creating pages, allowing me to be able to post at least one every week! We now have a new addition to our team, Bre who helps us with organizing and kicking our butts when we become too lazy to do adrast. She has also helped us with coloring, shading and web designing this site! Soon enough her characters will be introduced into this long plot line! We will be one big happy family then!

Hey, I'm Bre who's the newbie to the group. I'm currently an university student here in Australia studying illustration. I joined the team after working a year or two on a roleplay plot that's set in the universe of Adrast as the others thought I would be an... interesting addition.

For the most part, I recently started colouring and shading the pages as well as editing and helping out Mimi with the design layouts where she needed it, including writing up a portion of the information for the website. In the future I'll be more of a co-writer, introducing a few characters of my own- that will some sort of traumatic. You're welcome to bug me whenever, you should see me around regardless.

A. Mimi uses a 00.3 mechanical pencil for both lining and sketching. For paper she uses cardstock 110lb white 8.5 X 11in. On the computer, Bre and Mimi both use Photoshop CS6. Mimi and Bre both use Wacom Intuos 5.
