MidCity by DMStrecker MidCity by DMStrecker
MidCity is a place where all the inner workings of the larger Capital City take place. It is nestled in the rock of the mountains that hold the walled Capital City above it. Here is where the blue collar inhabitants live and work and dine and spend their down time. It is also the location of the prison police station and one of the better greasy spoon cafes in all the galaxy.

Subject: Bertha arrives in MidCity to meet a contact at the MidCity Cafe.

This place looks fascinating. What's the story behind it?

(Also the colors are awesome.)

The story, well, it's complicated, but here's the gist. This is really just the central hub of a much larger city built at the top of a deteriorating mountain range. MidCity is really just the hidden basement of the larger city, where all the "works" are kept a safe distance from the pampered citizens above. The small red ship that is flying in from the right is Bertha and can be seen in detail in a cross section piece in my "story idea" gallery along with some of the characters from the story. Bertha is visiting MidCity because the main character "the Sower" is meeting a clandestine contact to receive codes to access the security grid of Capital City high above...I put these samples together to present to Heavy Metal magazine as an ongoing story. Haven't gotten around to submitting it yet but the story is written. I just need to actually do a few pages of the actual story.

Thanks again for the comments and questions!
