Escaping Reality

The best thing to do sometimes is shut off from the world and just lose yourself in the worlds found in science fiction books. It’s the one place where things make more sense than all the made-by-committee dribble you now find on streaming services, the net or social media – which together form the triumvirate evolution of the idiot box – palatably made to keep you placid and flaccid.

There’s even more of a reality escape in the worlds of indie comics, which have been fighting the system for generations – offering black-n-white, no-frills action, drama, romance and brain frying concepts that weave wickedly divine stories about everything you want there to be. They make more abstract sense now than they ever did.
