"Doctor Grordbort Presents: Victory - Scientific Adventure Violence for Young Men and Literate Women" is the year's foremost journal of progressive armaments and weaponry!

Behold the latest line of defense captured in action! Filled to the brim with firsthand tales of exploration and progress from the great heroes of our time, picture strips of unimaginable escapades on the frontier, never-seen-before portraits of dazzling damsels and monstrous villains, and laudable accounts of man and robot pitted against our greatest enemy (the uncivilized world), "Victory" is an onslaught of action-packed scientific adventure in full-spectrum color - containing facts that every boy and literate girl should know.

I have always enjoyed a good 'graphic novel' as opposed to a 'comic' as they are usually aimed at a far younger audience. Graphic novels are more adult-oriented, (usually) in a non-frisky kind of way. This is one such.
At first glance I thought it was going to be more of a 'Flash Gordon' meets "Star Trek - The Original Series" kind of thing but I could not have been more far from the truth.
It is surreal. Wierd, violent, irreverent, abstract, crazy, goofball - use whatever label you feel best fits - but no matter how you phrase it this was just off-the-wall funny.
Its not going to be everyones cup of Earl grey, with a slice of lemon if you please my good man, but for those who enjoy 'out there', well, this couldn't get much further out there without looping around the circumference of reality and starting to come back!
All in all, I found this to be a lot of fun, but I can see how it will really only appeal to a niche group of wierdos and freaks (and I use those terms in a positive, colloquial sense, while also including myself in them) who love the stranger side of imagination.

Product image for Journeys in the Dead Season"So little natural light falls into my cell, and I have such a limited view from my window, that at times I feel as though I am entombed within a coffin... Down here, deep within the soil, I must content myself with mental excursions only, tripping beneath the canopies of forests that exist solely in the mind..."
