Devil's Territory

Concept

 

The comic uses horror and supernatural elements to visibly represent the internal experiences of generational trauma, mental illness, substance abuse, and internalized homophobia, and explores the intersections between the lived experiences of colonized peoples, the LGBT community, and those who live with stigmatized mental illness through the interactions between the characters and their environment
