Welcome to SonichenandRosechen.com
Sonichen & Rosechen: The Lost Mutant Clones of the Planet Gaus is a pop-surrealistic Science Fiction/Fantasy web-comic/novel produced by Kenneth Engelhardt of Warwick, Rhode Island. Drawn with a number of reference sources using manga characters and clip art as a starting point, Sonichen & Rosechen has undergone a period of development into a comic with a most unique storyline in a fantasy – manga context.
Outside the Comic: the website itself has undergone extensive change from simply being a web-comic into a web-comic/fantasy novel. New material is regularly being developed and expanded to provide variety and interest for my readers. A personal interest in website development and other computer related areas has been a part of my life for quite some time.
The work of a solitary writer/graphic artist is overwhelming and the website in its current state has only scratched the surface of what needs to be accomplished. There are storylines and characters that need to be developed, in both the writing and artistic areas. Sonichen & Rosechen will also be featured on Patreon as well.
