Welcome to Utown!
Utown is the story of a seedy neighborhood that a cast of misfits call home. Inspired by a string of real events that took place in my own city, the story follows Samuel, a 24 year-old semi-aspiring artist (but mostly a video store clerk) who’s doing his best at avoiding adulthood. When gentrification shows up at his doorstep, he must face the fact that the town he grew up in is no longer his safe haven–and that he’s not ready to leave just yet. With no money and little options, it’s time for him to either step up and prove his worth as a serious artist or keep on repeating old, toxic behaviors.
The comic is updated twice a week, on Mondays and Thursdays. Go to the Comic section to skip to the latest page, or skip directly to the start of each chapter by choosing from the chapter list below.

Hi everyone! Wow, I can’t believe that after all these years, Utown finally exists as a comic, with its own (super spiffy) webpage. If you’re new to the story and its characters, please, browse around! Everything you need to know about the characters is in the Cast section, while the story of the project and how it came to be is in the About section. Of course, you’re here for the Comic, right? It will be updated every Monday and Thursday for a… good while, if everything goes well. And if you can’t wait that long, my Patreon page already has a few pages available to read, and will continue to update in advance for whoever pledges 1$ or more. Every contribution or share is appreciated, and honestly, allows me to continue working on this dream project. A big thank you to Ken Mallar for making this website possible! And thank you to you, reader 🙂
