The Story

The world is quite literally falling apart. With ever increasing amounts of land collapsing into the water, the search for answers leads to a secretive group of people who can seemingly travel through dirt and time.

Black Shallows is a coming of age story about old mysteries, ancient lore, and resilience.

Black Shallows updates weekly on Tuesdays (usually evening/night), and started in February, 2018. PG-13, probably.

The Artist

Hi! I'm Kirstin, I was born and raised in Massachusetts and now live in Chicago. I spend most of my free time on Black Shallows these days, but apart from making comics, I enjoy reading other webcomics, illustrating, and cooking. I graduated from UIUC in 2018.
