About the Comic

Jeinu wrote a variety of novellas throughout his adolescence, the majority of which took place in a high fantasy world with narratives spreading across a millennium. Despite the wildly varying plots and settings, two characters continued to pop up time and time again in one form or another. Eliano and Khesar continuously bounced around in their creator’s head without truly seeing the light of day until he completed two novellas in 2012 and 2013’s NaNoWriMo challenge, rewritten from a similar 2007 novella. Feeling he finally got it right, the idea continued burning in his head until he developed it into a comic.

To date, Jeinu has written nine stories taking place in this universe, of which “Trial of the Sun” is the fifth. From this set, the sixth will likely be also made into a comic as an immediate sequel, and the third as a loosely connected prequel. He is not sure whether the rest are salvageable.

About the Creator

Jeinu is a self-taught artist living in Utah aged around 25 years. He considers himself more or less a hobbyist despite drawing professionally for five years.

After binge reading “His Dark Materials” trilogy at age 10, he was inspired to become a writer in the despair that followed. He resolved to go about making comic one-shots and filling binders full of shoddily handwritten novels, some of which became the basis for his comics. For a brief time in his teens, he got into webcomics and meandered around poking into the flash animation scene, where he was introduced to Tarienn. They have since collaborated on animations, games, stories, and a variety of commissioned work. Eventually he looped around to making comics again.

Nowadays, he has married Tarienn and spends most of his free time consuming an inordinate amount of artichoke hearts. He has a finicky rescue dog named Coriander and a very cool cat named Cosmo, who are best friends. He also has far too many plans for the future, but that’s neither here nor there.

About the Webmaster

Tarienn is a wizard or something? Not sure. He’s in charge of managing the website and a cat named Ofee. His day job involves telling people how to fix their computers and sometimes people even listen to him! He founded a small game development group called Mar-ble Team in 2012.

He married Jeinu in early 2015. Together they make pancakes Saturday mornings and annoy friends by indiscriminately humming lines of the Pkunk theme from Star Control 2. It’s a serious problem and it’s tearing everyone apart.

If you see a problem with the website or don’t receive donation rewards, you can contact him directly at josh@marble.team! He might draw your webcomic idea, but you’ll probably seriously regret it.
