Strange Attractors TPB

A young graduate student discovers that his aging professor has been saving New York City from collapse by a series of “adjustments,” a la the Butterfly Effect, only to be informed that he must be the one to take over keeping the city alive. A grounded sci-fi thriller in the vein of Source Code and The Adjustment Bureau.

Every once in a while you pick up a book with no idea of what you’re getting into and finding yourself hooked really fast.  That certainly ended up being the case for me with Strange Attractors after just a few minutes.  I love a more fictional approach to stories as much as the next guy, but this more reality driven tale was a great new read for me.

Stories like this that sit so close to possible always seem to be that much more interesting, as it reall...

Quest #1

Alright folks, it’s been awhile since my last review (you
know how tricky space-time can be) and so what better way to start us off than
with another masterfully crafted tale by Pat Shand?  Published by Zenescope, the series is called
Quest; a story about four hapless warriors who are sent on a journey to find
the one item that can dispel the evil that is plaguing the realm of Myst.
However, is it truly what they seek, or is it all a setup?  Peril and danger await our heroes as they set
forth on a grand adventure that only Zenescope could tell.
The realm of Myst has been thrown into turmoil after The
Council had been taken down by the Dark Horde. 
Now evil plagues the land and The Temple of the High Council has become
its focal point.  These are dark times

Gentle Carmel

Gentle never meant to rise from school punching-bag to Mexican hobo and desert-dwelling superhero.
That fate was sealed when he sided with the water creatures.

Beat-up at school for autism and haunted by a
mysterious Hag at home, Carmel
just wants to draw, shower and do stand-up comedy. But when he sneaks into Mexico to find
and murder the Hag, everything changes. He eats delicious fish, rides the
rails, climbs peyote mountain and transforms into flames. 

Artist and author Brian Schrank lets loose in
this epic journey that bobs, weaves and bursts with experimental energy.
Influences range from 80’s cartoons, underground comics, shlock horror, cheap
manga, and pop culture iconography. Brian blends a dizzying range of styles
together to tell the tale of a boy who has a broken mind but an ...
