Hi. I'm Lauren.

Aluminum City was created as a final project for a class at Stanford called New Media Writing. It was a hell of a class.

I've never made a comic before. In fact, it's been several years since I've drawn anything. But I love comics and I read them all the time, so I took the opportunity to make one as a final project when it was offered to me.

As you will soon find out, this comic is a weird one. Not since White Ninja have you seen art so unapologetically bad, and not since Diesel Sweeties have you seen so many robots. I'm not sure which comics I can draw parallels to in terms of the incorporation of Bible stories, but I'm not going to worry about that. You don't need to know the Bible story in question to appreciate the comic, although it may give some depth to it.

I can't imagine why anyone would want to appropriate any of it, but, um, don't?

It is a ridiculous thing. Maybe if you like ridiculous things, you will like it. I hope you do, in any case.
