A Friendly Game is a graphic novel project that started in the second half of my undergraduate years of college. What was meant to be a scripting expansion on an 8 page story turned into an intense project spanning over 180 pages with many twists and turns.
Friends play many kinds of games with each other: cops and robbers, checkers, tag. The best of friends will make up their own games.
Todd and Kevin's friendship is built on such a game. However, the rules and premise are far from the typical childhood games. A dispute amongst the two splits them into very different directions: one sees the game for the cruel act that it is, while the other decides it must move to the next level.
