DUAL - The Online Graphic Novel

By Michael Walton


I came in at the end of this online graphic novel's first season... after the creator and I became Facebook Friends.  As I do with most invitations to join the new friend's fan page or group page, I did so in this instance. 

Shortly afterwards I received the following message sent to all the members of the 'Dual' Fan Page from Michael Walton:

Dual’s first season has drawn to a close this week with the posting of screen 60. These first 60 screens are the set up for a larger story I hope to tell.

If you have not yet checked out the supernatural, action, dramedy that is Dual, please head on over to Zuda to take a peek:  http://www.zudacomics.com/dual

If you have enjoyed Dual (or you might be able to pretend you enjoyed reading Dual), please take a moment to let Zuda know you’d like to see the story continue. Go to : http://www.zudacomics.com/dual

Up near the top of the page, sandwiched between the “FAQs” and “Message Boards” is the “Feedback” link. Click on that little ol’ “Feedback” link and it will take you to a new page which offers you the opportunity to tell the powers-that-be at Zuda how important it is for Dual to continue.

I am very passionate about this project and I appreciate your help.

Thanks for your support.


Okay, Now that we have seen what Michael (Mike) Walton wrote to all of his Fan Page members, I realize that most of you haven't seen this project yet. So what is it about?

Well, in the creator's own words... "At age ten, Bill Jensen and his “imaginary” friend, Yasu, inadvertently unleash a devastating power that kills three schoolmates.

A decade later, Bill wrestles with making his way in the world while dealing with the inner turmoil of determining whether Yasu is devil or delusion. Still haunted by the confusing events of their childhood, Bill and Yasu struggle to recognize their extraordinary power and purpose.

Bill’s secret power mysteriously begins to attract the interest of bizarre creatures, including a bulimic werewolf and a man claiming to be an ancient soul-eating dragon. The power’s pull might also be contributing to Bill’s turbulent romance with an unstable witch, named Corina, and luring the attention of a psychotic serial killer.

New aspects of the power begin to manifest just in time to help Bill and Yasu deal with escalating threats, which send the companions spiraling toward an uncertain destiny-- heroic salvation or evil oblivion?"

Okay, so this isn't the normal fare that I usually read, or blog about.  However the storyline in this graphic novel kept me reading until the final page of 'Season One'.

Is it worth mentioning in my Blog?  Yes.  Is it worth continuing?  That would be up to you and the others that find this online graphic novel at zudacomics and indicate there if you think so.  Because you see, Zudacomics.com is a competition of sorts.

As of this blog's posting, the graphic novel's 'Final Rank' was #1 in the competition.  It has had 157,062 page views, and 823 different persons had signed up with Zuda to be able to 'favorite' this entry. 

Is this graphic novel 'outside the box' in its' presentation? Yes it is.  Is the subject matter a little outrageous? Yes it is.  Is this graphic novel the creator's dream project?  Yes it is, because Michael is both the writer and the artist for this graphic novel.

Does this have a chance of making it to publication?  Well, for those of you that don't know, zudacomics.com is now owned by DC Comics, so that should tell you something about the possiblity of this happening, but it is up to the fans of this project to let zudacomics know...

The way I understand Zuda is the following:  Dual won Zuda's June 2008 initial entry competition.  Then each month ten selected submissions compete on Zuda for a 60 screen contract. Zuda users vote for the winning titles.
After the first 60 screens, user feedback helps determine if the title will be renewed.

Michael Walton does have more to do to complete this series, including a cover for it, should it see print.  There is a base of over 700 Facebook Friends for this project over on its' Facebook Fan Page.  

After reading the 60 screens graphic novel as it currently is seen online, and you are interested in seeing and hearing more about it, then Michael Walton invites you to also join his Facebook Fan Page for Dual at:  


Please Note:  The Dual Graphic Novel is not for kids, and contains subject matter that is probably not agreeable for all readers. It is presented here for those that are 'into' that type of story or supernatural genre and is told in a more graphic illustrated format.
