May I present First Lieutenant Samuel Gamble, assistant surgical officer of the Union army, circa 1863.  The promising young doctor’s latent paranormal “talents” have lain (relatively) dormant for much of his life… but the death and trauma surrounding him every day on the battlefield are taking their toll.  Samuel has begun to believe that he must be going mad… because to believe that the horrors only he sees are somehow real would be too much to bear.

Because some people have expressed an interest in Sam and the Society, I just wanted to A) thank you, so much! and B) let you know that unfortunately there is not at present a whole lot of info about this setting and cast of characters extant on the internet, because for a long time I have had half-formed dreams of turning this story in my head into a webcomic or novel.  I stay relatively tight-lipped about a lot of things related to these characters so as not to spoil things in the future should I actually manage to do so… but I love them all to bits because they’ve been in my head so long, so I’ll happily talk about them in dribs and drabs as I draw them.
