This is a story about a girl named, Aless. Forced to go to the park to get some “fresh air” by her mother, she fell asleep on a park bench & woke up in a strange underground world. Aless is frantically looking for the exit to this maze so that she can FINALLY go home & play some video games.

This comic is a long labor of love. The original version of this comic came out in 2012 when I was going through an extremely rough period in my personal life. I has to let go of this concept so I could focus on self-care. This is the second version of this comic where I hope I have a better grasp on the story & on my personal circumstances.
