In Galactopera, I wanted to take some things away that we take for granted in science fantasy and see what that did for the story. I made space travel a huge obstacle to overcome and I took away pervasive robots, or automata, and made them an endangered, delicate thing. Once I did those two things the story fell in place in my head, although I recently realized I need to set aside some pages to deal with the special situations in the galaxy, otherwise throwing a magic stone and walking through a portal is just a magic device rather than an integral and special part of the world. Enter a few comic pages I will be doing to touch on the topics that underpin my Galactopera story.
