About the Comic

Roman is "vacant" - born without magic. But when his neighbor gives him a strange stone and tells him it could fix his condition, he thinks his struggles are finally over. Unfortunately, things are rarely that easy.

Burn Away is a nuzlocke comic based off of my gameplay of Pokemon X, completed in 2015. The story takes place in a universe where humans don't exist and, instead, are replaced by a wide variety of pokemon gijinka (or "humanized" versions of pokemon).
