The morning of Saturday, August 25, 2018, in SoCal started out rather overcast, but that did not deter fans of He-Man and She-Ra from descending upon the Torrance Marriott Redondo Beach hotel last weekend for Power-Con.

Science meets future-noir in the comic book series, The Resurrected, created and written by Christian Carnouche.

Announced a year ago, August 14 will see the release of Idle Days from publisher First Second Books.

The cover conveys tension as all eyes – Jerome, cat, dog, house and skull – are staring at the reader. The cover is not short on symbolism, as each item derives its meaning as the story unfolds.
