You have reached RED LIGHT PROPERTIES, my comic series of real estate ghost stories centering around a small office on Miami Beach that exorcises and lists “previously-haunted homes” while trying to hold their own lives together in an increasingly-shitty economy.
The RLP office is run by the Tobins, a married couple in the process of divorcing (no spoilers, it happens on page one): Jude Tobin is a schlubby, drug-addled “urban shaman” who handles the exorcisms, and his control-freak of a wife (and the agency’s broker) Cecilia who sets him loose in haunted houses armed with the various hallucinogenic plants he uses to enter the spirit realm and get rid of any unwelcome spirits. And then there’s little Turi, their young son stuck in the middle of the divorce, and Zoya, the office’s perky zaftig Russian receptionist-slash-ghost-photographer whose enthusiasm for working with our shaman feeds his own ego while exacerbating an already-bad situation.
Essentially, RLP is a twist-up of ghost stories and family dramas, exploring life/love/death/family/marriage while standing hip-deep in the rising tidewater of the USA’s economic collapse, one that I’m using to transmit my own cosmological ideas about the Shape of the Universe as seen from a tiny aging monkey body.
And I’m just getting started; I’ve been developing RED LIGHT PROPERTIES since 2001 and have reams and reams of material in front of me.
The story starts here, but you can jump around using the pull-down to your left or using the Archives which, erm, archive everything to date by storyline.
Welcome again; I’m right on the other side of your screen and would love to hear from you.
