For thousands of years, early human civilizations passed around tales of a strange continent full of fearsome, hostile, man-eating monsters. Several hundred years ago the island of Allemune was “discovered” by Europeans looking to colonize new land, who were promptly driven out by the advanced society of sentient, talking creatures already living there. Fast forward to the modern world, humans have found their place in Allemune and the native inhabitants of the island tolerate them as long as they play by the rules, but they still choose to remain as politically isolated and self-sustaining as possible. Humans in the outside world tend to view the continent as a novelty, a dark religious omen, and a last resort for refugees looking to escape any situation worse than living in a country full of giant talking animals that might eat you, while others are drawn by stories of the “Platinum” regenerators and their valuable, otherworldly flesh.
Who Makes This Comic?
Platinum Black is written and drawn by Kelly Turnbull of Manly Guys Doing Manly Things, and coloured by Emily Smith of Gestalt Comics. Kelly lives on Tumblr over here, Emily can be found on Tumblr and Deviantart.
When Does It Update?
Platinum Black does not have a set update schedule as Emily and myself are busy professionals. I make my webcomics in addition to a full time animation job in Los Angeles, which demands a great deal of my time. MGDMT updates weekly, quality be damned, but Platinum Black is a polished piece that I have a certain quality bar set for. Platinum black will update in “scenes”, several pages at a time whenever I finish them. Telling me to work faster will not make pages appear faster. You can preview in-progress pages by pledging to my patreon, and see the pages in black and white before they’re posted to the site in colour.
What Kind of Content Should I Expect
Expect Platinum Black to contain gore, salty language, nudity, and come with a Mature Readers rating. Individual page uploads will have content warnings in the blog posts I make to announce them so you know if it’s safe to read at work or not.
