Some stories are an escape. Some stories are a refuge. Some stories change in the telling, relentless to live on. Then, sometimes . . . it’s we who refuse to let go.
Artist Charley Keo’s new gig begins as a fun challenge to breathe new life into the forgotten pulp world of Elad - this time as a comic book. But as tendrils of this lost realm creep into her sleepy Portland neighborhood, Charley realizes that Elad is much more than the lines on a day-dreamt map, more than the sum of an old hack's prose. Elad has its hooks in Charley, and what was once fantasy has become deadly reality for both the artist and the woman she loves.
Examining creativity’s dual nature in providing a healthy outlet for self-expression as well as a mechanism for avoidance, the graphic novel explores the excitement of an artist unlocking their imagination and the dire consequences of getting lost . . . in the margins.
