Long Exposure is an ongoing webcomic about nerd Jonas Wagner and bully Mitch Mueller being forced to work on a high school science project together and encountering a strange research site in the woods .
The story revolves around them developing super powers after an incident at a strange research center. Facing childhood trauma, abusive parents, being followed by a mysterious car, and developing superpowers together, they slowly grow closer and eventually realize they like each other a lot more than friends.

Warning: it contains a lot of swearing, some violence, drug/alcohol use, sexual situations, touches on some sensitive subjects, and drops a few (censored) slurs on occasion. (Triggers are put up for the pages that contain any of the above)
