Two short stories that take place within the Dazzle world but not part of the actual timeline, this comic was done as a creative experiment with a very talented young teenager from Kyrgyzstan.
The whole issue is hand drawn by her without any digital art, pencil and inking pen only. The first story is set in Seattle in 1989 where Raga comes to meet her 20 year old cousin, who’s actually the younger version of Dazzle’s creator, to give him some much needed advice on life. The second story is set in 1965 Paris and is a small slice of life story between Dazzle’s main lovers, Snow and Sword.
