This comic was inspired by the epiphany I had when my son was born. He made me realize that my life did not turn out how I thought it would. It turned out even better. This webcomic is just like that. I originally planned it to be an action themed comic, but it worked better as a baking competition as well as a coming of age comic with science fiction elements. It is also a Valentine to my beloved husband who loves Star Trek of which the setting is also a Utopia on Earth so I borrowed a lot of elements from his favourite media. Expect this comic to be a satire on 80s media like G. I. Joe, He-Man and other toyline classics as well as many anime tropes by calling them all out from how absurd to how toxic some of the way they do things were and still are. The central theme of this comic is family unity and how a good support system can help you overcome your inner demons.
This is also a baking themed comic so expect recipes and for those who try them out, let me know how they went!

About World War IV:
During the 2500s, mutant (more about them later) and human kind were at war with each other on a global level. While the reasons for the war have fallen into obscurity, the amount of damage done was never forgotten as it took two centuries to clean up. Civilization was nearly lost and the planet nearly became inhabitable. Upon realizing that this was a war no one could win, both humans and mutants decided to mutually call things off. Initiially, they each stayed on their side of the line, but as they worked together on fixing up Earth, the line eventually got erased. Now, WWIV serves as a reminder to people in history as the boiling point in time when hate on Earth was at its worse and for society to never reach such a frightful level again.
About the 31st Century:
The setting is highly inspired by Star Trek where Earth is a peaceful Utopia and all nations get along very well. Earth is also part of a federation of united planets, so it is not uncommon to see aliens on Earth. All technology is eco-friendly, the air and water are clean, the ice caps are cool, the ozone layer is patched up and every home is a smart home. Touch technology has replaced buttons and keypads with the exception of technology for people with special needs. You will also see that robots and cyborgs walk among people. Most notably, most of the major countries no longer exist because of the severity of WWIV. In fact, it was so bad some land masses got ravages and even broken apart. The only "old nations" that are still around are the ones that consisted of islands like Greece, Japan, Hawaii, Haiti, etc. In the case of the main cast, they live in a new nation country known as Maximus which was once a piece of the USA, but it is now located next to the Hawaiian islands. Because of this, it has a lot of Polynesian influence in its culture as well as Japanese. Basically, Maximus is a lot like Wakanda, but Polynesian and its capital state is Bright City.
