O’Sullivan And Klaus’ Sci-fi Adventure Void Trip Collected By Image
by Olly MacNamee
Meet Ana and Gabe—the last two humans left alive in the galaxy.
They’re low on fuel, they’re low on food, and they’re low on psychedelic space froot, but they’re still determined to make it to the promised land: hippy-paradise super-planet Euphoria. VOID TRIP is the story of their journey, the friends and enemies they made along the way, and how the universe responded to those who dared to live freely within it.
That’s the premise for writer Ryan O’Sullivan and artist Plaid Klaus’s Void Trip, launched last year and now to be collected in one handy trade paperback.
Void Trip aims to answer the question: ‘how can we be free in a universe that will always course-correct to limit us? This isn’t your typical adventure comic, with violence as the solution to every conflict. It’s a road trip story. Its main concern is exploring the human condition. It’s Jack Kerouac and Hunter S. Thompson meets Herman Melville and Cormac McCarthy. Expect laughter, tears, and existential dread in equal measure.
And, it’s out June 5th, with FOC this Monday, April 16th, 2018.
