Hello and welcome to Drink Water!, a brand new weekly webcomic chronicling the ongoing adventures of the citizens of Black Rock City. This story has been stewing in the back of my mind since the first time I set foot on the playa back in 99, and the time has now come to let it out! The first 50 pages are mapped out, so please check back as I will be updating the site regularly.
All of the characters and adventures chronicled here are true to the best of my recollection. They are my campmates and neighbors, and they are all just as bizarre and beautiful as you can imagine. The story is told as though it happens in a single week, although in reality the events transpired over the course of many years.
There will be several dream sequences woven into our tale, similar to the one that opens up our story. These are dreams that I’ve had on the playa over the years, and they may help to put the experience into context, especially for those who have not been there in person. And for those of you who have made the journey to the dust, keep your eyes out for a familiar face because you never know when you might make a surprise guest appearance.
Some may recall a print issue of Drink Water! from 2008. It told the tale of a dusty Wednesday on the playa, and those pages will eventually be woven into this narrative as part of the greater story.
So sit back, strap on your dust mask, and enjoy.
This is sure to be a wild ride.
