"Damania" was an idea for a supernatural mystery/comic fantasy comic which I had back in Spring 2011 - although it never actually materialised, I still kind of like the characters [Roz, Derek and Harvey ] and I occasionally end up drawing them.
[Note - 25/8/12 - I'm sort of planning to turn this into an irregular, occasional, non-sequential webcomic. And, as such, I retrospectively consider the "concept art" drawings to be episodes of it LOL!!!]
The main sources of inspiration behind my idea for the comic were mostly "Buffy The Vampire Slayer", "Angel" and Mike Carey's "Felix Castor" novels. [ (9/10/12) - plus, vintage American horror comics as of about a week or so ago LOL!]
This gallery also contains "concept art" which kind of gives a general impression of what the comic would have been like if I created it. I don't know, whilst I like drawing these short comics very occasionally if I have a good idea for one, I don't have any plans to do a full-length comic at the moment.
[Edit 8/10/12 Well, this is strange and slightly embarassing... I've just looked online and apparently the plant which this series gets it's title from is actually spelt "Damiana" [Turnera Diffusa, to give it it's Latin name - see the description for "Concept Art - Damania" for why I chose/found this title: pekoeblaze.deviantart.com/art/… - I've just corrected this link, since the original didn't work properly ] rather than "Damania"[which apparently, according to Wikipedia and Google seems to be both an Indian surname referring to a village in Gujarat and also a species of fish too (Damania Anjouanae) . Still, I don't know, despite this rather bizarre spelling error, I still prefer how the word "Damania" sounds, when compared to "Damiana" ]
[Note: 9/10/ 12 - I've introduced a new character called Harvey Delford. A long and amusing character description can be found in the description below "Damania - Bordering On Paranoia" pekoeblaze.deviantart.com/art/… ]
[Note: 14/12/12: A comic called "Anachrony" can be found here: pekoeblaze.deviantart.com/gall… and it is a prequel (of sorts) to "Damania" - Featuring Derek and Rox (a new character) when they are at University ]
[Note: 21/6/13: A collection of "Damania" comics from the ongoing 'Arch Nemesis' story arc/running joke can now be found here: pekoeblaze.deviantart.com/gall… ]
[Note: 16/4/16: Yes, this folder is actually still being updated. Although I've just realised that I haven't updated the description since 2013! At the moment, "Damania" is still an occasional comic - which is being released in short daily mini series (these seem to be less than twenty comics in length) and/or in black & white narrative comics, with a gap of anything from several days to several weeks between them.]
[Note: 25/1/18: Whilst the usual monthly mini series of "Damania" comics will return in about a month's time or so, in the meantime, I've been making a five-comic experimental comic series that can be seen here: pekoeblaze.deviantart.com/gall… ]
