O Human Star

By embracing the same type of story that the masters of science fiction have been working on for decades, Delliquanti has created a comic that fans of Octavia Butler, Ursula K. Le Guin, and Philip K. Dick will delight in, exploring an entirely believable future with not-unreachable technology and deeply, beautifully human characters.                                         Caitlin Rosberg, The AV Club

O Human Star is a long-form online comic that I started in 2012. It follows the story of Alastair Sterling, an inventor who wakes up in a lifelike robot body 16 years after his death and must come to terms with the unfamiliar, futuristic world that is the result of his work and his legacy. Along the way he reunites with his former research partner and comes face to face with another robot whose mind is a copy of Al’s – and is living as a teenage girl.

O Human Star is a 2015 Ignatz nominee for Outstanding Online Comic and one of the winners of the 2012 Prism Comics Queer Press Grant.

Print copies of Chapter 1, as well as buttons and other items, are available at the OHS store. The comic is updated once a week at O Human Star. An excerpt from Chapter 1 is reproduced below.

I’ve got a busy May ahead of me, with 3 conventions!


First up, I am returning to TCAF this weekend, May 13 – 14, at the Toronto Reference Library. You can find O Human Star stuff on the 2nd floor, table 244, with Joamette Gil!

I’m also thrilled to announce that I’m gonna be on my first ever TCAF panel: 21st Century Webcomics with Tom Spurgeon, Matt Lubchansky, Priya Huq, and Michael Deforge. (!!!) That’s gonna be on Saturday the 13th, 2:45 pm, in the High Park Ballroom at the Marriott Bloor-Yorkville.

I’ll see you there!

And finally, I will be in the Dealer’s Room at WisCon 41, from May 25 to the 29th, in Madison, Wisconsin! This is a brand new show for me and I’m excited to see what the fabled WisCon is like. So keep an eye out for me!
