What is this comic about?
Coming of Age is a story about mental illness, trauma, and healing. It focuses on human relationships and how we affect each other.

Aisling is 14 years old in the 9th grade. She likes to draw, play video games, and practice clarinet. She lives an average life until one day, her house unexpectedly burns out. This event leaves her depressed and very vulnerable. Her mom and step-father busy with the house’s rebuilding efforts, Aisling seeks the attention and guidance from her English teacher who gladly gives it to her. As the relationship grows, Aisling gains the confidence to meet new people and leave her shell. Slowly though, she learns that some relationships can be much more harmful than they seem.

Dramatic and sometimes uncomfortable, Coming of Age will dive into difficult topics, sad topics, and at times, happy topics. I hope you enjoy this comic, it is very important and personal to me.


What is the money going towards?
All of it will be going to the artist, Christopher Peterson. I can’t make this work without him and he deserves a fair pay, so that I will be giving to him. He's paid up to page 60 but after that, I'll be needing help from my patrons.

Up to page 57 will be posted for free at comingofagecomic.com. After that, it will become a Patreon exclusive.
