Announcing Uncanny Valley High!


I’m proud to announce I’ll be writing Uncanny Valley High for Space Goat Publishing‘s Backpack Editions series. An excerpt from the announcement:

(January 31th, 2017 – Bellingham, WA) – Publisher Space Goat Productions has announced a new line of Backpack Edition comic books. Perfect-bound, at 9” x 6”, the graphic novels are small enough to fit in backpacks, messenger bags, and purses, while still being durable enough for travel. Perfect for readers on the go. Most books will be available digitally on Amazon and Comixology well in advance of physical publication.

Uncanny Valley High is about a high school in a (poorly rendered) computer simulation dealing with all of the glitchy hijinks that entails. Think Archie, if Archie was trapped in a broken video game. Written by Ian Flynn (Sonic the Hedgehog, Mega Man) and illustrated by Maddi Gonzalez (Munchkin, Fresh Romance).

“I can’t wait for folks to experience all the fun and funky stuff in Uncanny Valley High,” said series writer Ian Flynn, “It’s new territory for me, and it’s been a lot of fun to be involved with it!” Series illustrator Maddi Gonzalez said, “I’ve always loved stories based in reality but slightly off-kilter, so I’m ecstatic to work on a title like Uncanny Valley High.”
