The work centers on a science fiction theme, but there is more to it that. It is in good company, with with distinct echoes of works as diverse as Flowers for Algernon, We3, Never Let Me Go and Bodyworld, to name a few. It’s a real page-turner; you’re unlikely to be able to put it down till you’ve turned all 272 of them! Full color throughout (in case you were wondering).
The long-awaited colllaboration between Ezra Claytan Daniels (Upgrade Soul) and Ben Passmore (Your Black Friend) has arrived. This 294 page, horizontally formatted, full color graphic novel explores the porous boundary between science fiction and horror to present an allegorical tale of contemporary urban life in these United States.
