I'm trying to comment on the outbreak in Sierra Leone. The artstyle is heavily inspired by the Mende-people's amazing helmets since I wanted to keep it local.
The main character has lost almost everyone she knows to the virus and the ones she knows who haven't caught the sickness yet do not want to have anything to do with her.
She's a survivor of ebola. The story starts when she stayed at the recuperation center for two or three days.
I'm currently developing envoirment and characters and I'm reading every bit of interesting information I can find on the social issues related to ebola. I want my comic to reflect reality as best I can without it being tacky and/or preachy.
This is not about shaming those more fortunate. This is about giving the lost, 'cursed' kids of the ebola epidemic a voice and remembering those whose lives were claimed.
