I've been waiting to post this for a loooooong time! It was my entry for this year's The Jonathan Cape/Observer/Comica graphic short story prize (quite the tongue twister...)

I've been following the prize for about five years, but it's taken until now for me to have the guts to enter! I wasn't shortlisted, but now I know that I feel free to post this online.

In fact thinking about it, this comic has an even longer history. I remember coming up with the "Dodos are extinct because time travellers pinched them all" idea about five years ago when I was at university. I had a go at drawing it out at the time, but back then I had a habit of abandoning projects the second they no longer matched the perfect vision I had for them. Big comics advice: don't do that!

If you're new to me and my work, greetings!

Heh, this is interesting. A while back I had a "Dodo" story idea myself, where one somehow survived to the present day and it's all old and wise and can even speak.
Haven't fleshed out that idea much further beyond that, though.

Anyway, not to take away from your work - this looks very charming :D

Sounds cool, the world definitely needs more stories with dodos in!

Read all the dodo story pages, the art is nice and colorful as usual; though I noticed that this version of page 1 and page 4 are double uploads?

And I think you might need to add "https://" in front and "/" at the behind of "jabbage.net" to make ComicFury recognize it as a link too:

Thanks, yes, I was having major technical difficulties while trying to upload these pages! I think they were doing work on my internet. It ended up double uploading, and then I couldn't manage to delete them.
