“Dawnrunner” #1

By | Mar 22, 2024 | Reviews

Monsters vs. people in mech suits. It’s one of those combinations that just works. Personally I think a big reason why it’s like this is because we as humans like the idea of using science and technology to fix our issues and make our lives better.

“The Jellyfish”

By | Mar 19, 2024 | Reviews

The first full sentence of “The Jellyfish” goes like this: “You do in fact seem to have…a jellyfish in your left eye.” It is innocuous, but portentous. A line full of meaning and absurd all the same.
