MOLLY BLUE   introduction    contents    page 1

Welcome to the Molly Blue graphic novel, multivolume comic book, American manga, or something like that. Science fantasy. Every picture tells a story. Characters tell each other stories too. Links back to the Carl Miller Poems and Antventures sections are in the bottom bar.

The comic’s pages are displayed in pairs, as you would see them in a print comic book, except on small screens, where the pages will appear above and below.

Molly Blue is an adventure/comedy/romance, set on an Earthlike world with two moons, with at least three species of intelligent life— humans, frogmen, and demons. The humans come in two races, who resemble English and Polynesians. The demons come in a variety of castes. Imps are small, overlords are large. Frogmen also vary in size, but even the oldest are less than chest-high to a grown human.

Molly is a young Polynesian woman about 24 Earth-years old, with heroic (but not super) strength and stamina, who earns her living doing heroics. She has a pet big lizard, Pina Ao, who’s already about the size of a Komodo dragon, but far from full-grown. Molly is widely admired by humans and frogmen on her home island of Kauiki, and usually respected by the demons.

The archipeligo is governed by a constitutional monarch, King Hugo, and his Parliament. Hugo is dying, and one of his three sons, George, Ralph, and Rupert, will soon be chosen by Parliament to succeed him. What this has to do with Molly becomes apparent when Prince Rupert’s aged advisor walks into her village, looking for help. The story begins.

Molly Blue’s story is now divided into books, each about 170-180 pages long, and chapters, each usually 26-40 pages long, according to the natural flow of the story. A few pages of contents will lead you to every book and chapter. The chapter number links will take you to a chapter contents page, with links to every page spread in the chapter. The page number to the right of the chapter name will take you to the beginning of the chapter. Should be easy, but it is different from what was here before.
