It doesn't matter if you were born lucky, given an 'upper hand'.
There will always be a way for the reckless to lose their head start in life, or for the unfortunate to gain what was never in their grasp.
Scholar is the story of Arthur Tibarious, and incredibly lucky (yet unfortunate) Prince who has been imprisoned for half of his young life. As an emissary and 'Scholar' working for his captors, he stumbles upon the truth of his world.
Is the life he left really worth going back to?

A bit of fun trivia since this page is a nice high number (that I never thought I'd actually reach!); My 'Scholar' folder on my computer is 4.71 gigs (of which, 3.35 is actual comics (and there's not even 60 total pages yet!). Scholar is comprised of 731 files, and 38 folders. I've been drawing it since 2003, so it's over 10 years old.
I once lost all of my world-building data when my first laptop crashed, and since have had to rebuild the world from scratch (I had created cities, technology, tribal histories, languages, family trees, unique abilities, character relationships, inventions and weapons, you name it). I didn't work on the story for a couple of years after that.
I started writing it before drawing- mostly the world concept, and the story was at one time set in two worlds, ours and 'Oniadion' the world of the comic.
The original story introduced Kita (who hasn't appeared yet, but those are her eyes on the top of the website), Arthur, and his family.
This version of the story is absolutely my favorite, although I have the old hard drive and if it ever gets recovered, I wonder if I'd want to change anything back?
