By Tyrell Waiters. Published by Nobrow. 

Softcover, 168 pages, Colour, 2023. 

A thought-provoking and hilarious romp through time and space from debut creator, Tyrell Waiters that explores what it means to be human in a world fraught with uncertainty.

“This is more than a graphic novel; it’s an experience. Imagination, science and adventure weave together into a visual journey that’s so fun you won’t want it to end.” Femi Fadugba, author of The Upper World

On the edge of burnout, Vern decides to return to his family in the Sunshine State to start over. Starting a new dead-end job as a custodian at Quasar—a local science facility with a shady motive—he shrugs on his uniform, grabs a mop and bucket, and trudges off to clean up… Black holes? Space-time anomalies? Galactic ooze?

Things aren’t entirely what they seem at Quasar, and when Vern accidentally plugs in a mysterious machine and finds himself standing on the brink of the destruction of every planet in the Multiverse, he’s presented with the greatest question of all: what is the point? Fans of Ben Passmore’s personal and political comics—as well as classic sci-fi comedies like Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventureand Rick and Morty—will enjoy this world of hyper fantasy with a touch of humor, as told by a black creator.
