Loud Era is a historical slice-of-life fiction comic concerning a group of friends entering adulthood around the 1920s. On the way, they forge new friendships, face painful setbacks, and fight to evade their figurative demons. Some parts of the story are light and fluffy, while some are more dark and unsettling.

Loud Era is traditionally sketched, inked, and colored, and is then edited via computer using the GIMP. Production of one page can take anywhere from a single day up to a week.


Loud Era was first brought to the web in March of 2009. Since then, it has undergone many changes as the author learns more about little tricks to make things look nice on the shiny computer. The site was originally hosted on Comic Genesis, which provided wonderful opportunities for a beginning webcomic artist in terms of community, learning to code, and learning to make a better comic. A mirror site was set up in September of 2010 on SmackJeeves, and production has since shifted entirely to the SmackJeeves site. Pages are updated and added on a continual basis, and new features are added with each "revamp."

THE AUTHOR & contact information

I like drawing, and I also have a soft spot in my heart for history. This comic allows me to combine these interests in a format I can share with others. It is quite possible and in fact likely that you know more about a given subject than I do. If you happen to notice a flaw with my (admittedly casual, and not particularly thorough) research, you are more than welcome to bring such issues to my attention. One way to do this is by emailing me, MitchellBravo, at lateralgeotaxis at gmail.com. Another way is to leave a comment below the comics. I value reader feedback and commentary and love to discuss things with readers, and will seek to get back to you as soon as possible.

If you've already read the comic, thanks for your readership! If not, I hope you'll enjoy reading it as much as I've enjoyed making it.
