“Only Humid” will be a physical comic book, an exhibition of the found and fabricated objects used to inform the book’s narrative, and a series of events that replicate the world of the comic’s protagonists. The book will be the third in Welch’s self-published comic series, “Endless Monsoon.” The “Endless Monsoon” books take place in an embellished, alternate-reality of Houston. “Only Humid” will be the first attempt to bridge the fictionalized Houston with the actual Houston by connecting them through tangible objects and events that the viewer can experience in tandem. With the project’s sculptural elements, “Only Humid” will present a range of pseudo-props and artifacts, some which are convincing and pass as a piece of our world, and others which are clearly part of the comic book paracosm.
