Hi there,
     I'm Chris Ralston. I began my comic art career when I was auditing my PreCalc class in High School and my counselor would not let me take an art class.(Jerk) So I sat there and drew my way through the year and the teacher just laughed with me.
    I left there and went to college for Forestry and quickly switched to Art. Drawing was great, but I was inspired by clay and actually went the 3D sculpture/ceramics route. It was fun until I hit grad school and got through that only to find myself uninspired and tired.
     So a year or several of searching, I remembered my love for telling stories and more specifically drawing stories. I made it my mission to get back to drawing and make it possible to create my own world.
Join me as I continue to learn and grow as a storyteller and artist.
     By becoming a Patron, you will help offset business and living costs for me (The Artist) and my family. This means more content and comics for you!

And now a quick synopsis:
 
In 1895 scientists and mystics tried to combine their talents to create a power source that would end the need for future power sources. The resulting cataclysm tore holes in reality releasing monsters and radiation throughout the world. Cities fortified themselves and took in as many people as they could.
The city of North Platte was the largest railway connection in the United States at the time. To protect the city it was put up on rails and started migrating through the States between the Great Lakes and the Gulf of Mexico. This city's name was changed to New Platte and now boasts itself the biggest trade city in the world.
One hundred years later the city has grown, being built on top of itself countless times.
This is the tale of the people who have come to call New Platte home.



Sound like fun?

Whats all this "The White Crow" stuff you ask?
Well it does mean a lengthy break from "The Third Rail" (at least it looks that way at the moment). But it is a collaboration between me and Eric Jones to create an awesome new graphic novel.
We plan to present it for the Creators for Creators grant but follow through no matter the results and finish the book in December of 2018. That means about 10 pages a month for me to draw and share here. Come along with us and cheer us on!
