    [Octopus]: O. minor Hmart Rescue Attempt 8 (Project Save Ocho)

    I draw and write all of Octopolis. The first issue is finished, and will be self-published on Kickstarter in May.
  5. The myth of Octopolis

    The myth of Octopolis

    Octopuses don’t leave skeletons themselves, so they have no idea that the mysterious ‘two-tailed fish’ built these ruins. They believe in an Ancient sea-spanning Empire that wielded unimaginable power, ruled by octopuses like themselves. They call it… Octopolis.
  6. The Old Empire

    The Old Empire

    Ruins of the Old Empire litter the world of Octopolis. Here the main characters explore a sunken subway station, abandoned except for a skeleton of the elusive two-tailed fish.
  7. Danger in Octopolis

    Danger in Octopolis

    As today, the ocean is not always a peaceful place. Here is a warrior queen who cannibalizes her mates and wears the beaks of her defeated enemies as a sash. She rides a giant eel that has been bred over generations for tremendous size and jaw strength.

    Trade & Commerce

    The octopuses have a vibrant trade economy. This octopus family is preparing their sledge with a load of kelp textiles and preserved krill to take to market.

    Advanced technology

    Octopuses have domesticated all sorts of animals for husbandry, service, and raw materials. This sand octopus rides a black-tipped reef shark and wields a turitella-shell spear.

    The Tide Wall

    This is the Tide Wall, a living reef that protects the great city-state of Polyps. The parapets are studded with elkhorn coral that breach the surface at low tide, and patrolled by guards at low tide. There are two entrances: A weighted lower gate for ground transport, and a buoyant upper gate...

    I’ve been working on a solo graphic novel about a society of intelligent octopus. Welcome to Octopolis!

    Octopolis is set in a fictional future where humans drove themselves into extinction and intelligent octopus evolved in their wake. They’ve build their own society in the coral-encrusted ruins of our sunken cities. Disclaimer: I write Octopolis and have drawn everything you see in this image.

    Where to buy food

    Where can I buy food for a dwarf octopus? Do I need to buy hermit crabs and other small animals specifically listed as being meant to feed an octopus or can I just buy the ones I see at Petco? I live in Michigan if that helps.
