_____. is a philosophical post-apocalyptic fantasy comic written and illustrated by Malin Rozon. It began on October 19th, 2018, and is available to read for free online here. _____. is impossible to pronounce, but if you call it “nulimbo” we’ll know what you mean.

Nobody knows how it happened, but the world broke. Most of it is missing now. It’s like the whole planet, or maybe the universe, was sitting on top of quicksand that finally gave out. But the pieces that are left aren’t the same. They’re confused. Some of them just repeat themselves forever, some of them change every time you blink – some of them breathe.

Most of them have monsters, people who aren’t people anymore.

And all of them are dangerous.

Content Warning:

_____. may not be suitable for young readers, and is not intended for children below the age of 13. It contains violence, occasional gore, suspense, mature themes, and more than a couple of swear words.

Please also note that the comic will contain some animated pages. Readers who are sensitive to moving images may wish to disable videos, animated gifs, and animated pngs in their browsers.


_____. ‘s influences are broad and include novels like A Wrinkle in Time, Stephen King’s Dark Tower series, and The Raw Shark Texts, as well as comics and animation from American and Japanese traditions such as Doom Patrol, Hellboy, Neil Gaiman’s Sandman, popular children’s cartoons Digimon Tamers and Adventure Time, the Japanese sci fi classic Akira, and cult classic Paprika.

The visual style of _____. is simple and approachable, and combines character design reminiscent of its Japanese influences with western visual storytelling (or “comic-book”) methods. Story-driven indie videogames are another major influence on the content and visual style of the comic, including surreal titles like Yume Nikki, OFF, and Kentucky Route Zero.
