Large Air Whales Like Silence [ Story Mode ]
Large Air Whales Like Silence (a.k.a. L.A.W.L.S. or LAWLS Comic) being the story version of the series has been coined “Story Mode.” It is a mysterious romantic comedy with themes of pop culture, music, classic video games, and even a hint of magic lore. In this universe, animals can talk, whales can fly, and hats can have a deviously snarky attitude towards humans!
“Come along on an adventurously awkward journey with the story’s main characters Joseph, Autumn, Cadence, and her pet monster Rudy, as they find themselves in the midst of a world of intrigue. While every character may have their own motivation for joining the party, one thing’s for sure, they all seem to have it in for Joseph.”
– Synopsis from L.A.W.L.S. Volume 1: Choking on Air
“It has gallons of talking hats with teeth, dapper whales, angry rocker chicks, and really ugly (some may say cute, but I don’t) monster thing that has so terrible speech impediment. Now, how can you go wrong with that?”
“The art is top notch and the writing is… spectacularly demented.”
-James Grant, artist of Two Lumps
“L.A.W.L.S. is the most (adverbly (adjective)) comic on the Internet. I, for one, would (verb) myself if Denis ever stopped (verb)ing it.” Fill in the blanks however you like. You’re welcome.”
-Joel Watson, creator of HijiNKS Ensue
“If you aren’t a fan of large air whales, don’t worry, their appearance is only brief. Instead you’ll find hammerspace hats, vampiric furries, villainous pop stars, and a platonic ménage à trois of heroes, all rendered in Denis’ eclectic style. LA.W.L.S. it up fuzzball.”
-Ryan Hudson, creator of ChannelATE
