“I’ve read this, re-read this, and then re-re-read this. There is not much to say other than to recommend for you to do the same. This is a graphic novel that has several stories ranging in various plots of a giant who ate a bush and chopped his fingers off, a severed hollowed head teaming up with someone by fitting over the head of another person, a boy walking on a conveyor belt who meets a goblin-looking thing called Ploff, the Blood Guide, and a whole lot of whacked out science fiction turns, elements and ideas. This is a celebration for anyone who has ever enjoyed taking science-fiction themed aspects, adding surreal characters, (in the Dali sense of surreal) and every now and then sprucing up the plot with a pinch of humor (whether or not it is entirely understood).

We are very proud to bring to you ‘Orbital Prowess 2’, by St Louis’ Curtis Tinsley (creator of ‘Pride of God Island’, as well as several other comics.) A sequel to ‘Orbital Prowess’, ‘Orbital Prowess 2’ does not fall short of any expectations, but instead moves beyond them. Tinsley has been described as creating fairly imaginative worlds in the stories that he illustrates, but with this book there is more impact from the plots and the over arching questions, such as “what is going on?” and “what is going to happen?”

Laying on your bed or on the floor, or sitting in a chair somewhere out there – this comic is sure to maintain a smile and keep yours eyes wide with excitement. Get it supplies last – (awesome times, guaranteed.)”
