    After the murder of her mother, Myu finds her world turned upside down as she takes on the daunting responsibility of raising her little sister, Topaz. Luckily for her, however, she doesn't have to go it alone as long as the kindhearted Atticus is here to help.

    Unluckily for her, this unlikely trio of kids may find themselves facing a little bit more than they bargained for.



    ㅤI may be part of the "Nuzforum Invasion", as it were, but my trade actually doesn't lie in nuzlocking at all! The Stars Shine Bright is a completely original comic about a young mew suddenly shoved into the role of guardianhood, along the way discovering that the world is a bit more strange than she originally believed. The comic combines elements from the Mystery Dungeon games and the mainline games, but in all the ways it does this, you'll just have to find out!

    ㅤI've been doing this comic for 4 years now, and I've learned a lot about drawing and writing over those 4 years. The early pages start out a lot crusty, but that's just how it is for first projects. Lots to show for my progress! Really, lots... nearly 200 pages now, so my hope is to upload at least 3 pages a day until we're caught up with the main SmackJeeves site.
