Sera’s full name is actually Seraphim’s Joy of Song. Her uncle, Frank O’Sladery, rescued her from his hyper-religious, cultist brother, who was about to move his family into a compound. There was a prolonged custody battle, very little of which Sera remembers. Despite the deeply religious vein in her family — Frank is WASP through and through — she does her best not to think about religion.
Sera has Frank convinced that she’s majoring in Nursing, but she’s actually gone into Theater.
Her goal in life is to acquire the rights to Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and MacGyver so that she can create the most awesome crossover ever.
Hey, since you scrolled this far down, check out our new shirt. It’s for the Thieves Can’t comic, but some Ramen Empire shirts will be coming fairly soon. Zach wanted to draw cute goblins, though, because cute goblins make everything way, way less stressful.
Shirt not your cuppa? Still want to show some support for the comic? Then consider a voluntary subscription over on our Ramen Empire Patreon. You’ll get access to the occasional book, podcast, and bonus art. It also helps us keep the lights on. Drawing in the dark stinks, so think it over!
We went through quite a few different panels for the end of this comic, and (as it happens) the end of chapter three, and I think they flesh out the world in a pretty fun way. Also, we don’t share many sketches and I think it’s probably time to change that.
So, I’m moving. Which means packing, cleaning, etc. And the side effect of this has been that I’m not updating Ramen Empire on Tapastic or uploading the high res images onto Patreon, both because these are fairly time-consuming, monotonous tasks, and because because there is never really any sense that people are reading the comic on those platforms. I’m going to do a Patreon High-Res comic dump toward the end of the month, or so I keep telling myself, but I’m not certain if it has any value to you guys. If you’ve ever downloaded the print resolution stuff, leave a comment. Alternatively, if you haven’t, that helps me to know, too. =) It’s nice not having the extra work, but I’m happy to do it if I know people are using it.
