Good McMorning Everyone!

Welcome Newbies!

It’s been a busy McWeek here in McSciFi land a/k/a The World’s Weirdest Amusement Park. Turning SPLICE: The Movie into SPLICE: The Novel has proved to be an interesting challenge. There are things which look amazing on screen but are excruciatingly dull to read. Contrariwise, there are delightful side roads you can wander in a book that would infuriate an audience. Of course, in SPLICE, those side roads are often bloody and dark. So that’s fun.

Anyway, since a few of you have asked if there was any way to get a preview of the book, the answer is yes, and I’m including a snippet here. I’ll provide author review copies, upon request, after it’s edited, which will be a couple of months from now. I need to finish writing before it can be edited.

Until then, welcome to the world of Lillian Goldsmith. Hotel owner, part time prostitute, and full time realist.

She treated herself to another shot and happened to glance up just in time to see two tough looking men carefully ascending the back stairs.

She grabbed her dime store binoculars and knew immediately they weren’t cops. Fine by her, she wasn’t a fan of the pigs anyway. A second look at their guns told her all she needed to know.

She was going to be shy one guest.

Oh well, they’d all paid in advance so no skin off her nose.

She saw two flashes in two sixteen and smiled. Robby Castelano thought he’d been slick, signing in as Tommy Hilfiger, but she’d recognized him from his numerous appearances on the real news. Word was he flipped.

Had. Past tense was clearly the correct tense now.

She watched the two men walk casually back down the stairs and smiled widely now. Clearly professionals, they weren’t going to bother her at all.

She glanced back up and saw they’d left the door open.

That was good news. 

Now she didn’t have to find the body. She could wait for the inevitable screams, call the cops, and play as innocent as a politician in the middle of a brothel.

“Why no, officer, how would I know what was happening here? I swear the schedule said ‘Youth Groups for Jesus.’”

Or.

“You mean he wasn’t the real Tommy Hilfiger? Well, he paid cash in advance and had ID. What was I supposed to do?”


You’re welcome. I’ll provide updates when I can but, for now, just be assured this bad boy is coming to life.

More below.



In other exciting news, GOPTRI OF THE MISTS is in the capable hands of Azoth Khem’s editing team. “What’s GOPTRI OF THE MISTS?”, you ask politely. Well, it’s a collection of notes I had left over from when I wrote THE BRITTLE RIDERS. While that series was set in North America, the events depicted were global. After all, you can’t write about the death of every man, woman, and child on the planet if you’re not using the whole planet.

Think of it this way, this book is the answer to the musical question no one asked; “What would happen if The Brittle Riders was set in India?” Unlike TBR, Goptri doesn’t change grammatical tenses based on the personal philosophies of the characters involved. Although, you have no idea how relieved I was people understood what I was doing and enjoyed it. Also, unlike TBR, there ‘s no defined hero, just a prominent, and lethal, villain.

Look, if you wanted normal you wouldn’t be following me. Here’s a snippet from GOPTRI OF THE MISTS to help you get by. Say hi to Rama Llandhaven, the undisputed Sovereign of Dravida.

As one of the four simian brands made by Rohta, he felt his Rumel brand was the most handsome. He slicked his facial hair, using a lightly scented pomade, and tightened his cravat. He walked down the hall, as he did after every breaklight, paid perfunctory – if insincere, homage at the various hallway shrines, and greeted his staff. He’d learned through many Suns of trial and error that treating the help with some semblance of respect garnered him more obsequious service than threats did. So, to get what he wanted, he was nice to the cretins.

He stepped out onto the balcony as an aide handed him his one new obsession, a cup of mint tea from the Shin-Sen, and smiled at the clear blue skies.  Grishma was his favorite season; clean and dry. While his staff worked to prepare the table for his first meal of the turn he nodded his appreciation to them as he suddenly felt something tweak his forehead. 

Then he felt the back of his head disappear.

Then he felt nothing at all.


Oh, yeah, a lot more individualized death in this than in TBR.

I mean, LOTS more.

More below.



Lastly, I’ll remind you that THE BRITTLE RIDERS is coming out as an omnibus edition. That means you can have 1200 pages of coo-coo coolness you can use to impress your friends, or bludgeon your enemies. Seriously, it will make a great weapon.

Since the release of Book 1 in 2016, this series has been on many adventures, led to more fascinating stories, and made my life kind of fun. Not many authors can say they got ripped off by Russian trolls and then ended up a wanted human in Russia for perverting their morals.Go ahead and read that again. I’ll wait.

The stuff they stole, and resold, didn’t meet their moral code, and that’s my fault.

Fuck Russia.

In the meantime, thanks for sticking around. I hope you have an amazing week full of unicorn farts and singing angels.

See you next week.




McFun Shall Be McHad

Welcome Back!
There is a certain amount of joy hidden in the act of being me. I find that, one way or the other, people pay attention to what I’m doing more and more. Since I make my living throwing letters at computer screens and praying for words, the more people paying attention, the better. But, sometimes, when people pay attention they become horrified and stare blindly into the void wondering what the hell just happened.

Recently, Cody’s Comic Chat, posted a Facebook video reviewing my comics. Now, Cody and his wife are great people, and do a lot for the indie community, but none of that prepared them for me. If you click the link you’ll see two normal Floridians trying to parse McSciFi into socially acceptable words. They were so taken aback that they never, not even partially, mentioned my name. I’m the Lord Voldemort of comics it seems. If you don’t want to click the link I can sum it all up thusly; the art is awesome, the stories are great, the author is a pervert.

I’ve been called worse.

Now, moving on to some non-trauma inducing news.

As everyone who’s anyone knows, every Friday I team up with the legendary Ryan Gatenby and record an  episode of the Big Wakeup Call, as heard on WBIG, and ride that thin line between terrorizing and enthralling listeners. Well, we’re taking our show to a larger stage, and giving it the catchy name Bill & Ryan’s Science Chit Chat.

This will be a weekly podcast poking into the latest scientific discoveries, the various governmental whims that stymie them, and we’ll conduct interviews with real scientists, famous authors, and more. This will, literally, be more fun than a barrel of monkeys and you’ll even learn why having a barrel of monkeys isn’t such a good idea.

Even cooler? We’ve already got our first sponsor. The nice people over at Antlur Creative Marketing, designers of our cool new logo and more, have jumped on board. Since they work with some of the hottest brands in the Midwest, they know a good thing when they see it, and they saw it here.

If you’d like to jump on board too, just email me at BillMcSciFi@gmail.com and I’ll send you rate sheets. Ads can run from fifteen seconds to one minute.

More below.



Last week, I mentioned there was some cool stuff happening over at Hadithi Sambamba. And there is. Two of its most popular titles, Hybrid Zero and Legends Parallel, have been deemed eligible for a series of national awards. I won’t name them now as I’d rather hold off until we get a formal nomination, fingers crossed, but just getting someone to admit we exist at that level is incredible.

2020’s shaping up to be a big year for Hadithi Sambamba. While the name is Swahili for Parallel Stories, there is just one narrative coming out; this is the year Hadithi Sambamba will go big. There will be new issues coming out on the two monster titles, as well as new titles you’ve never seen. There’s even going to be, limited edition, graphic novels for Hybrid Zero: Juggernaut and Legends Parallel. Good news for those traumatized by me is that other authors will be joining the fray, and they are welcomed with open arms. Just click on Hadithi’s link to see everything.

More below. 





I think that’s enough excitement for now. I know some of my fans take heart meds and I wouldn’t want to lose them. On a fun note, I’ll be teaching three more adult-ed classes at our church starting in March. When the dates get closer I’ll post them and you are all invited to drop by if you can. We have free coffee and snacks, in case you need a better reason.

Thanks again for all your support! Have a great week and I’ll see you next Tuesday.




Welcome McBack

Welcome New Subscribers!
First off, hello to all the new people who signed up via the website over the holidays. Now’s as good a time as any to remind everyone I don’t sell, or share, any of my email lists. If you get an offer for porn, or time shares, or anything not directly related to McSciFi, in my name, please let me know so I can take action. 

I’m hoping you all had a wonderful holiday season. Kim and I did family stuff upon family stuff and then kicked off the New Year by staying home. There’s a lot to be said for quiet cuddle time. I highly recommend you try it.

2020 is shaping up to be an amazing year for me. Due to the insane workload I’m going to have to cut back on my convention appearances. But I’ll still be out and about for you to wander by and say hi. We have a couple confirmed and will add a few more. I’ll update you as the dates get closer.

Now, on to the fun stuffA

As promised, I now have copies of THE EDGAR ALLAN POE CHRONICLES in stock and you can order autographed copies directly by responding to this email or writing to BillMcSciFi@gmail.com. My version of THE OVAL PORTRAIT, with art by Brian “Bigger Lion” Daniel, has been a crowd favorite. Other artists in the collection include people who’ve worked on THOR, GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, IRON MAN, and many more. I tell people it’s like reading jazz. Just like the best musicians vamping over your favorite riffs and turning  them into something new and wonderful, so it is here. The best of the best were cut loose to do whatever they wanted, and the results are awesome.

More below.



The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde: The classic tale and an anthology of twists, retellings, and sequels – This book contains the original version of the tale by Robert Louis Stevenson plus a diverse group of authors providing their own takes on the classic. This debuted at #1, on Amazon, in two Y/A categories, on Black Friday and stayed there for four solid weeks. My story, HANK AND EDDY: BRO WARS takes an odd look at it all, and provides a bit of a surprise. 100% of the net proceeds go to Deaf Blind International

Just a Minor Malfunction – Issue #5 – This is a collection of some of the best, up and coming, sci-fi writers in the world … and me. My story, GEORGE, was originally titled BREASTS IN SPACE. It’s a satirical look at the current Young Adult market and features actual samples of what happens when an artificial intelligence attempts to write GAME OF THRONES. Yeah, it’s as twisted a you’re hoping.

Sci-Fi Lampoon Autumn 2019 – This highly anticipated debut  of, what will be, an ongoing anthology series, features works from me and G.D. Deckard, Jeffrey G. Roberts, David Perlmutter, Stephanie Barr, G. Dean Manuel, John H. Dromey, a. stump, Boris Glikman, Ian K. & Christopher Scalzi, Stephen McQuiggen, Mike Van Horn, Tallis Steelyard, Richard Dalglish, Joseph Darlington, Rodney Milton, and Margret Treiber. My story, VORBLISS, is the most fun you can have with a psychic nun and a fatal disease and is not a good idea to give to younger, or more sensitive, readers.

Get all three of these and impress your friends with how much cooler you are than them.

More below.



Good news for fans of KORZAC: NÖRDICON OF DERN, it’s been re-released in the new PLANET SCUMM anthology. Korzac’s just this dude who’s fighting off the flu, trying not to have sex with his lieutenant, and hoping to save the galaxy. You know, typical Tuesday stuff. The anthology features some of the hottest new sci-fi writers from all over the world. It’s the perfect addition to any library, personal or public.

More below.



I’ll have some exciting news from Hadithi Sambama to share over the next couple of weeks, you East Coast peeps might want to pay close attention, and I’ll  update you on the progress of SPLICE as it nears completion. The novelization of the script I wrote is turning out amazing and I can’t wait for you to read it.

In the meantime, I want to thank you for following along and hope that you’ll enjoy the nightmares I’ll share this year as much as you’ve enjoyed the ones that are already lodged in your brains.




Happy McHolidays!

Happy Holidays!

It’s hard to believe another year is coming to a close. Sure, it’s an arbitrary moment in time marked, not by any celestial meaning but, by some random result of politics and hubris. It doesn’t matter. How we got the moment is of little relevance. What’s important is that we use the time to be with family, share with friends, and drink heavily.

Just don’t drive if you do the latter.

All in all 2019 has been amazing year for me professionally. Since you follow along religiously I won’t bore you with that. If you want McSciFi stuff for the holidays just go to BillMcSciFi.com. and grab what you need.

On a personal note, I recently celebrated three years with the world’s most amazing girlfriend, Kim Lipe. She makes me happy in ways I didn’t know existed. More importantly, I seem to have been adopted by her family. This is odd for me since I don’t really have a family of my own. Being surrounded by hugs, kisses, and unconditional love, is far more alien to me than anything I’ve ever written. 

But that’s where I’m at now, and I’m learning to like it.

And finding myself teaching Sunday school to wide eyed kids who think I’m worth knowing is also new. Those who know me well would not ascribe this to me, no matter how much liquor you plied them with. Yet, again, it’s a part of my life now and one I enjoy more than I ever thought possible.

Fun side note there; teaching the church organist about the joys of GWAR has to be one of the highlights of my life. Those kinds of experiences you can only live, not make up.

One of the perks of doing this writing thing, and showing up in places where people want to buy it, is that I’ve gotten to meet a wide variety of humans who help make my life better, and more interesting. I’ve shared drinks, laughs, and time with people I would otherwise never have met. 

I’ll be doing more of that next year.

In conclusion, I want to thank you for your support and wish you and yours nothing but good health, success, and happiness.

I’ll be back to annoy you next year!

Until the, here’s the cutest thing you’ll ever see.



McFun for McAll

Uncategorised Posted on Tue, December 10, 2019 10:27:29
Prepping for the McHolidazed!


It’s been a harrowing week. On the personal side, I had some minor surgery to remove an alien living on my jaw (a trilogy of cysts), and found out during that procedure that I’d recently had a minor heart attack. So that put a crimp in my mood. But not for long. I have a great doctor and she shared something with me that put it all in perspective. It seems the average woman, who performs oral sex on men, has an average of 20 to 30 minor heart attacks in her lifetime during the act. So, basically, I got told to suck it up buttercup and deal with it. Which I shall.

Who said my emails weren’t informative?

That screeching sound you heard was Ryan Gatenby begging me not to discuss this on his weekly radio show, The Big Wake Up Call on WBIG. If you’d like to listen to me not discuss blow jobs on a family oriented radio station, just tune in this Friday at 9:10 AM (CDT). I’m sure I’ll find something else to talk about.

In exciting new news, I recently signed a contract to turn SPLICE, the movie, into SPLICE: the novel. It will be released by AZOTH KHEM, the same people who foisted my trilogy, THE BRITTLE RIDERS, onto the universe. While the novel will hew closely to the script I wrote, it gives me a chance to do a deep dive into the world SPLICE lives in and have some fun with a few background characters. 

In other exciting news, I seem to have a ton of shit out this holiday season. Like too much for one person to read. Hell, it’s almost too much for one person to write. Just kidding, this is just the tip of the freaking iceberg. 2020 is going to be amazing!

Anyway, ICC Magazine just dropped its annual Holiday Gift Guide and you don’t want to miss it. Chock full of coo coo coolness it also contains the hottest of the hotness. Simply put, if you can’t find something you need more than life itself within its luxurious pages, then you’ve got too much money, too few friends, and are destined to be sad forevermore.This gift guide, unfortunately, has a picture of me in it. But, fortuitously, also has multiple pictures of Little Alice and other amazing creators to take your mind off that blight.

The Hybrid Zero: 2-Pac has nothing to do with rap music and is, instead, a collection featuring magazine sized versions of JUNGLE GRRL and CASSANDRA AND THE CHANGELING SWORD. It’s a beautiful mix of boobs, beer, ninjas, and philosophy. You could be the first being, who species identifies as human, on your block to have it. The only way to get a copy is to order it from me. You can do that by responding to this email.

One sad note, I sold out of the EDGAR ALLEN POE CHRONICLES  and won’t have any more until after the first of the year. Sorry about that. But you can order a non-autographed version via the link. Signed or not, it’s a wonderful collection of reimaginings. My version of the story, THE OVAL PORTRAIT, features a robot and a darker ending than the original. After all, we all know that Poe is too lighthearted for most readers and I wanted to fix that.

However, I do have a few, less than ten, copies of TRUMPOCALYPSE. My story, THE GOOD LORD SHALL PROVIDE, is the happy tale of a future where the 1% live in gated communities and, if they don’t please the Trump heirs, are thrown out to become food for the rest of the world. Them’s good eating! There’s also cherry flavored opioids and Masta-Don dildos. Seriously, what more could you ask for this holiday season?

If you want to order from Amazon instead of me, you have some solid options.

The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde: The classic tale and an anthology of twists, retellings, and sequels – This book contains the original version of the tale by Robert Louis Stevenson plus a diverse group of authors providing their own takes on the classic. This debuted at #1, on Amazon, in two Y/A categories, on Black Friday and shows no signs of slowing down. My story, HANK AND EDDY: BRO WARS takes an odd look at it all, and provides a bit of a surprise. 100% of the net proceeds go to Deaf Blind International

Just a Minor Malfunction – Issue #5 – This is a collection of some of the best, up and coming, sci-fi writers in the world … and me. My story, GEORGE, was originally titled BREASTS IN SPACE. It’s a satirical look at the current Young Adult market and features actual samples of what happens when an artificial intelligence attempts to write GAME OF THRONES. Yeah, it’s as twisted a you’re hoping.

Sci-Fi Lampoon Autumn 2019 – This highly anticipated debut  of, what will be, an ongoing anthology series, features works from me and G.D. Deckard, Jeffrey G. Roberts, David Perlmutter, Stephanie Barr, G. Dean Manuel, John H. Dromey, a. stump, Boris Glikman, Ian K. & Christopher Scalzi, Stephen McQuiggen, Mike Van Horn, Tallis Steelyard, Richard Dalglish, Joseph Darlington, Rodney Milton, and Margret Treiber. My story, VORBLISS, is the most fun you can have with a psychic nun and a fatal disease and is not a good idea to give to younger, or more sensitive, readers.

Get all three of these and impress your friends with how much cooler you are than them.

I also have copies of all my awesome comics, and a foreign anthology – GODS OF CLAY, available and will ship them for free, in the Continental U.S., if you order any three by December 31, 2019. All you need to do is write me at BillMcSciFi@gmail.com, click this link, or respond to this email, and I’ll hook you up.

If you order this week you’ll have them in time for Christmas. 

Thanks for reading and I’ll see you next week!




Everything’s McWunnerful!

Welcome all the new peeps from
Chicago Pop Culture Con!

We had an amazing time at the con. We got to hang out with Wesley Eure and Kathy Coleman, a/k/a Will and Holly from Land of the Lost. They were there to sign autographs and so on but got an incredible surprise when one of their fans drove in from Canada with a series of home made props for people to share, including a full sized pylon and matrix table

And, because our booth was right next to theirs, we had a steady stream of people who were able to discover the joys of McSciFi. A ton of fun was had by all, we made a bunch of new fans, and were able to meet some people who were really looking forward to stocking up on their McSciFi needs. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience.

BTW, by “we” I mean my amazing girlfriend Kim and me. She stuck by my side, and helped me with customers, for the entire event. That’s her prepping to brain Wesley with an oar.

More below.

Now, on to some coo coo cool new stuff.

The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde: The classic tale and an anthology of twists, retellings, and sequels – This book contains the original version of the tale by Robert Louis Stevenson plus a diverse group of authors providing their own takes on the classic.

Get all three and impress your friends with how much cooler you are than them.

If you want to order autographed copies of anything in the graphic below you can just email BillMcSciFi@gmail.com. McSciFi makes the perfect holiday gift for loved ones, or random strangers. If you’re in the continental U.S.and order more than three of anything I’ll even ship for free.

How cool is that?

The Hybrid Zero: 2-Pac has nothing to do with rap music and is, instead, a collection featuring magazine sized versions of JUNGLE GRRL and CASSANDRA AND THE CHANGELING SWORD.

Lastly, I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Kim and I got to spend time with her sister’s family and ate far too much food. I mean, seriously, there were so many platters they all didn’t fit on the table. And that doesn’t count the appetizers she had laden the kitchen with. It was nuts.

But we had a great time, enjoyed the complimentary vodka, and will do it again.

My thanks to each of you for your continuing support and fun interactions.

See you next week!




McFun Was McHad

Welcome Those I Met at WindyCon!
Kim, she’s my official girlfriend, and I had a blast at WindyCon. We met fun peeps, sold some books, got to hang with friends old and new, chatted up the Harp Twins who were funny and wonderful (no pics, sadly, since we were on our way to the car), and learned some valuable lessons when it comes to budgeting longer cons out of town. 

The other thing we learned is that there are fans who think that having sex with dino clones is cool. Do you know what we call those people? CUSTOMERS! Yep, we ran into some Hybrid Zero fans and were damn glad to meet them.

More about that below.




As you know (because you’re smarter and better looking than anyone else), we recently ran a Hybrid Zero #FanArt Contest. While the contest generated a solid number of entries, there were only two we could use. The whimsical pixies, called lawyers who work for major comic companies, would have sued me into the stone age if I’d used their properties to advertise mine. 

That said, we still want to give a big McSciFi McShoutOut to Esma Kurbegović, the winner of Cyril Brown’s Hybrid Zero #Fanart Contest. Esma won all the prizes and will be featured on a full page in issue #2 of Hybrid Zero: Juggernaut.

Our runner up was the lovely, and talented, Montreal Mack. He got all the prizes, except the gift card, and his entry will also be featured on a full page in issue #2 of Hybrid Zero: Juggernaut.

More below.



I know there are people, just like you, who would love to give some McSciFi as gifts this holiday season but, and this makes me the sadz, can’t make it to the final con for 2019 at Chi Pop Culture Comic Con in St. Charles, Illinois the weekend after Thanksgiving.

Not to worry. All of the cool merch, including onesies for growing fans, can be ordered directly online at my online store, And, BONUS!, I have a living room full of boxes, containing books, that I’d love to empty. You can just reply to this email with your order and I’ll let you know what the shipping is. And, yes, I will ship overseas, it just gets a tad pricey. There will be no charges until you approve the final order.

The Hybrid Zero 2-Pac, listed in the image, has nothing to do with Hip Hop and is, instead, two new comics. A magazine sized version of Jungle Grrl and the unreleased Cassandra and the Changeling Sword. You could, literally, be the only person to own this on your block.

Thus ensuring your cool-cred for all eternity.

More below.



Don’t forget, you can still get your copy of ICC Magazine, or write me to pre-order Just a  Minor Malfunction, which features my story GEORGE, a/k/a Breasts in Space, a scandalous and satirical looks at modern Young Adult sci-fi, or get your early copy of THE STRANGE CASE OF DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE which features the original tale by Robert Louis Stevenson plus thirteen reimaginings by amazing authors and me.

My entry, HANK & EDDY, gave honest people nightmares, so you know it’s perfect to read to kids.

Just kidding, don’t read my stuff to kids.

Thanks for following along and I’ll see you next week.



Everything’s McWonderful!

Howdy Ya’ll!
I know how much it means to you to have the chance to touch my robes and wallow in my essence. Well, no I don’t, actually, since that’s kind of creepy. But I do know some of you prefer to meet me in person when the opportunity presents itself just like Carol did at the SCPL Local Lit Fest on November 2nd when she bought her copy of THE BRITTLE RIDERS and then sent me this note; “There’s a cold beauty in the death you create.” Yeah, I smiled.

Nevertheless, I have good news if you’re in the near west suburbs of Chicago as I will be appearing at WindyCon in Lombard from November 15th through the 17th. 

This is one of the largest, indie oriented, sci-fi and fantasy shows in the country. Thousands of people converge on the Westin Hotel in Lombard to meet and greet some of the best creators the Midwest has to offer.

And me. They get to meet me too.

Anyway, I hope to see you there.

ICC Magazine is getting ready to drop its annual Holiday Gift Guide and you don’t want to miss it. Chock full of awesome coo coo coolness it also contains the hottest of the hotness.

Issue #8, features an interview with Trina Robins, the first woman to explore polygamy and a BDS&M lifestyle utilizing a pictographic format in a national magazine. Or, as others put it, she was the first woman to write for the Wonder Woman comic book series. Either way, ICC interviewed her and it’s a great read.

I have copies of almost everything I’ve written, minus a couple anthologies, sitting in my living room. If you would like to get something autographed for the holiday season, just respond to this email. I, certainly, have all my comics. Plus, and this is exciting, right now I’m the only human on the planet who has a copy of the Hybrid Zero 2-PAC featuring Jungle Grrl and Cassandra and the Changeling Sword. Unlike the manga sized version of Jungle Grrl that’s out now, this is a full blown magazine and it’s exactly the kind of thing that will get you offered sex by strangers just for having it near.

Yeah, it’s that cool. Order it now!

All my other comics are currently crowding the Top 12 list released by Nerdanatix and I couldn’t be happier.

Check out each of my titles below.

Svarozic – A woman trapped inside a man, a god trapped inside a human. Since they’re all one person, she’s got issues. This is a very TEEN FRIENDLY comic. I wrote it to give trans kids a superhero of their own. It’s even got a Gypsy circus. Because every comic set in Russia needs a Gypsy circus.

Juggernaut – Set in the distant future, Juggernaut is the story of a human/alien fusion and her strange family. They live in an era where sexuality, in all its myriad forms, isn’t taboo but violence is. This group of aristocratic soldiers, who just happen to be related, must face down their own petty, in the grand scheme of things, problems and stop a trans-dimensional creature before it destroys the universe. Or not. It really depends on their mood at the time. This is a magazine sized masterpiece that will impress all who see it.

Legends Parallel – This is the perfect comic series for those who think quantum physics isn’t violent or sexy enough. Five earths and one woman wants to rule them all. This is the story of the man, his mom, and her lover who have to stop that from happening

.Jungle Grrl – In a distant future sex is encouraged, violence is frowned upon, and our hero, her bestie, and their dino clone, try to eke out a living in a sex park while figuring out the meaning of life. The existential poetry based on beer should be enough to make you grab this one. There is a limited amount of American Manga sized versions of this. Once they’re gone, they’re gone.

Ruh Roh Rangers – This is the R-Rated parody that’ll ruin your childhood but make your day. Those four meddlesome kids are now four meddlesome adults. Scooby Dooby Don’t

See you next week!
