A little bit of history:
WCST started as a bunch of stick men with giants heads doodled in the sidelines of my Math 11 notes. That’s pretty much how it lived for six years until I went to grad school and realized my time is best spent reading webcomics. It was Ryan Sohmer’s and Lar DeSouza’s work on Least I Could and Looking For Group that inspired me to dust off the old characters and bring an internet strip to life. Another year of prep later, and on August 31st, 2009, We Can Sleep Tomorrow was launched on comicgenesis.com. Then, after a bit of wise advice, and a tonne of help from an old web-savvy friend, WCST managed to move to its own domain three months later. Now, in its second year, the comic is still a work of learning in progress, so I hope you enjoy.
WCST tomorrow follows a group of friends, anchored by quick-witted Darren, and Stan, the Russian immigrant, as they age and mature through life. Unlike many other comics, time flies in the WCST universe as it does in ours. So the characters will grow older, their settings will change, and major plot points will actually get places in a reasonable amount of time. If you want to find out more about who the actors are, then go to our Cast page. If you’re a new reader and want to catch up on the plot without going through the archives, you can visit this page. And if you have any further questions, please email me.
We Can Sleep Tomorrow was named after the feeling you get when you spent a great day with some great friends, and you’re ready to put fatigue on the backburner just to stretch out that time a little more.
Serge is a writer (he still can’t get used to the “and artist” part) of Russian origin. By origin, it means he spent the first thirteen years of his life growing up in Moscow and the next eleven years dealing with that upbringing in the context of living in North America. He’s currently working on a novel, and on updating WCST on time two times a week.
Serge is also a full-time student, and no, he does not know how he finds the time to do everything, but is glad that he still has what’s left of his sanity.
