Interesting Drug – Shaun Manning

Interesting DrugThis book is that rare gem, an original story. Starting off with the fact that time travel doesn’t usually come in pill form. It’s a refreshing break from the ubiquitous super power plague. It has a grown up narrative for you to puzzle out and although there are plenty of talking heads your brain never glazes over.

The art is just as weird as the story with characters drifting from highly caricatured virtually blank with two dots for eyes. The art looks watercolour in tone but probably isn’t. Many of the backgrounds are actual photographs, just to complete the bizarreness.

The hardback presentation and lovely interiors and iconography make this a standout book.

Thumbs Up!
