How to React During a Disaster
New graphic novel highlights the 2014 Kaohsiung gas explosions.
Running away costs money, which is why it’s easier to do when you grow up rich. For Angela Severson, what happens when something bigger than you occurs and all your escape routes are gone?
A disaster like the 2014 Koahsiung gas explosions could happen anywhere. Every city has an intersecting maze of pipelines and other subterranean infrastructure. In Koahsiung’s case, an unnoticed leak began detonating just before midnight on July 31st, ripping open entire streets in the process. Happening on a warm night in a city where night markets are popular, many people got caught out.
Bystander Chronicles is the first in a historical fiction anthology series created specifically for smartphone and tablet. Concerning the under-reported 2014 Kaohsiung gas explosions this interactive graphic novel follows Angela Severson and her unlikely companions as they try survive, try to help, try do anything other than run away from the terrible disaster that rocked an unsuspecting city.
The artwork for Bystander Chronicles, illustrated by Megan Huang with colors by BeyondColorlab, was designed specifically to fit as much of the mobile screen as possible without distorting the images.
