Why is this story called "The Redac"?

(I explain this on the first page, but whatever) I originally made this thing by parodying, embellishing and redacting my life. That's more or less where the name comes from. It's very much an artifact title now, but I keep it because I still like it. I'd be too lazy to come up with something else anyway.

So this is some kind of autobiographical story?

Sort of? Early on, it's basically life embellished (and parodied). However, it quickly develops its own fictional mythos. And even at the beginning, stuff was off. Read Chapter 1, and you can already tell it's not really our world. That isn't to say the real-ish details are gone; one of the protagonists is basically a fictional version of me, for example. It's just that the focus is now my imaginary world.

You say this was originally created in 2009. Why did you wait so long before showing it online?

Good question. I was only a kid back then, learning to write and draw, let alone mess around online! And I didn't have a scanner worth its money for many years. I always knew I had to show the Redac around sooner or later, but only really considered it in 2015. By then I was familiar with webcomics. Now I just had to actually scan stuff, improve it on my computer, and find a cool hosting site and a cool starting date. I finally got around to do it on October 27, 2017.

When does this comic update anyway?

I used to update it every Sunday to follow the original schedule (I made one Redac issue every Sunday), but then I got used to that whole webcomic business and decided to speed things up a bit. So expect at least two updates a week (including every Sunday), barring an alien invasion or such things.

Who the hell are you anyway?

Me? Just some guy who never closed the door of imagination that all children have in their mind.

Can I make fanart/fanfiction of The Redac?

Of course! ^^ You might even get featured on the Fanart page!

Is The Redac NSFW?

Nope. I'm pretty sure your younger siblings, kids or pets can all read it. There is violence, but nothing worse than a shonen anime or superhero comic. Swearing is rather tame (but creative!), hell and damn are probably the worst you'll hear.

Anything else worth mentioning?

I use a lot of surreal humor, comedic silliness, weird silliness, and lame puns. Since the oldest stuff was made in 2009, expect very sketchy drawings and basic plots. Even if you don't like some parts, I sure hope you'll like the sum of all the parts, which is what ultimately matters. (I told you about stupid puns!) One of the most interesting aspects of the Redac is that you get to witness my artistic evolution from 2009 onwards.
