Nima Afshar is a trained graphic designer who studied at the National Art School. Nima also writes his own work; personal sci-fi and weird fiction comic stories that are reflective and/or mythic in nature.

This fan-fic piece comes just in time for Star Wars Day, May 4th aka "May the Fourth Be You."
