For years, Nil served as the liaison to SYSTEM (a UN organization tasked with studying his isolated culture) until Ailo, Nil’s uncle and the island’s shaman-king, carried out a brutal attack against his own subjects to “punish” them for accepting the influence of these outsiders. Only Nil, and his dinosaur companion “Ante,” survived the massacre. Seeing him as their last connection to a lost society, SYSTEM relocated Nil in America under their own protection.

Nil now grinds through each day as a modern student, struggling to control his emotions as he’s tested by bullies, teachers, and SYSTEM itself. A schoolyard scuffle brings into question whether or not Ante should be allowed to remain with Nil, but only this childhood companion can protect him from Ailo, who escapes from captivity to finish what he started.

What to expect from Nil – Issue 1

Sullivan and his team say that this comic is geared towards the teen and young adult audience and deals heavily with themes such as abuse, depression, and alienation. Trigger warnings include the usual violence and minor language. Sorry, cheesecake fans buts there’s no nudity.

From the Preview Pages, you can expect bold and vibrant colours that inspire a familiar yet alien world that deals with societal and cultural assimilation… complete with a dinosaur in tow.
