eCopy recieved from the author in exchange for an honest review
From Ryan O’Sullivan (Void Trip), Andrea Mutti, Vladimir Popov, and Deron Bennet comes FEARSCAPE. The Fearscape is a world beyond our own, populated by the manifestations of our greatest fears. Once per generation, The Muse travels to Earth, discovers our greatest Storyteller, and takes them with her to the Fearscape to battle these fear-creatures on our behalf. All has been well for eons, until The Muse encounters Henry Henry—a plagiarist with delusions of literary grandeur. Mistaking him for our greatest Storyteller, she ushers him into the Fearscape. A fake man in a fake land…this is the story of the wrong person answering the call to adventure, and the doom that followed.
Okay so at the time of writing this this comic isn’t listed on Goodreads so excuse the deadlinks on the title and image, hopefully before this goes live I can fix that. [its there now]
If not, its because its a new comic and sometimes these are slow to be on GR or missed.
Now if you’re thinking that Ryan O’Sullivan sounds familar to my blog then you’re correct – I read his graphic novel Void Trip earlier this year which was amazing.
So when I saw him asking if anyone wanted a PDF to review of Fearscape #1 I was like YUP! Sign me up!
Fearscape follows Henry Henry whos narrative on life is blissfully ignorant and he very much lives in his own world happily trodding along as a plagiarist.
His narrative voice is very entertaining to read though and he sure knows how to tell a story.
One evening, The Muse mistakes him for a legendary author and enlists him to enter the Fearscape to defeat fear-creatures with his storytelling prowess.
I really loved the design of The Muse and the possibilites that we could have with Henry in the Fearscape. These combined with the great writing I really can’t wait to read the rest – will this be the first ever comic series I purchase?
