webcomic

PIXELWISH

Melvin is obsessed with Milton’s Game. He also has a huge crush on the titular character.
Milton is a digital trickster entity with reality altering powers, housed in the game's cart. Urban legends on forums state that by playing Milton’s Game you can make your wildest dreams come true.
What happens when Melvin commits to summoning the digital trickster to grant him a very special wish?
Pixelwish is my first delve into making a webcomic. The comic was first posted online September 10th, 2018 and is currently technically ongoing, however on an indefinite hiatus.
