A new beginning! Welcome to the big relaunch of The Last of the Polar Bears. For those of you just joining us, The Last of the Polar Bears is an online graphic novel about a mother polar bear and her two cubs and their struggle to survive in the warming Arctic of the near future.

It has been a long journey getting to this point. I began work on The Last of the Polar Bears in 2009, researching polar bears and the arctic extensively, plotting the story in detail, designing the characters, and storyboarding the complete book. All that remains is to illustrate the pages.

A new page will be posted every week on Monday. Some of the early pages will look familiar to returning readers, but look carefully and you’ll notice that they’ve been retouched and enhanced. Bear with me, it’s all new territory once we get up to page 36.

I look forward to introducing you to this little guy and the rest of his family, and hope you’ll join us on their epic journey across the harsh environment and into maturity.
