Xeric Award-winning cartoonist Kevin Mutch skewers theory-spouting academics, sleazy art dealers, and obnoxious over-sharers. In this graphic novel, Adam Kline is an aspiring artist with bleak prospects, stuck in a thankless adjunct teaching gig and married to an ambitious woman tired of supporting his starry-eyed pipe dreams. Just as things seem to be looking up for hapless Adam, he begins to black out at random and awaken in a pitch-dark void surrounded by billions of probing eyes. When these uncanny visions appear in his real life, he starts to worry that he’s losing his mind… Black & white illustrations.
