Fajita is a genre-bending webcomic series that has been running on Darkstar Studios since late 2009. The comic updates with a new page every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Fajita currently spans 11 completed chapters and nearly 500 pages which are divided into two ‘Acts’.
What’s it about?
It all starts with Widow, a mysterious bug-eyed girl, trying her best to put her traumatic past behind her, and the day she meets Shea, an equally mysterious (but blonde-haired) girl who says she needs Widow’s help to “save the world”.
But all is not as it seems when their out-of-control adventures leave not only their town in shambles, but Super-Hero Police Agencies, maddened Mercenaries, Societies of Sorcery, and diabolical Masterminds all hot on their tails.
And while the chaos reveals more and more dangerous realities, Widow soon finds that she must not only face off with the darkness of her own personal history, but that the silken threads of fate are woven more tightly than she could have ever imagined.
Why the name “Fajita”?
The name itself started out as referring to how the comic is a mix-up of all sorts of things (kinda like a Fajita), though it’s an intentionally abstract use of the word and its meaning is about as far removed from Tex-Mex cuisine in this comic as it could ever be. Does it have anything to do with the story? I suppose there’s only one way to find out.
