Sina Grace is getting into the web series scene based on his 2015 Image Comics graphic novel Self-Obsessed. The arrival on the web in that form will be Tuesday, March 22 and the series will be directed by Daniel Freedman. The book is a comedic look at the life of a gay, LA-based cartoonist who struggles to find his creative mojo amidst a break-up, a book cancellation, and an overall crisis of faith in his own work. Grace stars in the series alongside Amber Benson, Adam Busch and Jon Gabrus.
“Making the book Self-Obsessed taught me to follow every idea down every meta rabbit hole,” said Grace. “It seemed like the only logical next step to bare it all on screen, surrounded by my best friends.”
When Sina breaks up with his latest boyfriend, he’s heart-broken. When the book he’s working on is cancelled, he’s devastated. Self-Obsessed follows Sina on a hilarious journey as he tries to rediscover his passions for drawing and life. From striking out at a gay bear sex party to getting sage advice from his best friend Amber to visiting an old flame Jon in San Francisco, Sina tries to keep it together. Will he remember why he started drawing in the first place or will he obsess over where he went wrong?
