The net result is intriguing, but untidy: Several plot elements that we expect to cohere instead simply coexist, and become a kind of narrative background noise.

Synopsis

The graphic novel accompaniment (in square-bound, 10 x 10 format) to musician, singer-songwriter, and internet superstar JONATHAN COULTON’s new concept album, SOLID STATE.

From JONATHAN COULTON, the singer-songwriter behind Code Monkey and the Portal songs; MATT FRACTION, the writer of SEX CRIMINALS, CASANOVA, and ODY-C; and drawn by the award-winning Spanish artist of Universe! ALBERT MONTEYS comes SOLID STATE, a graphic novel companion to COULTON's new concept album of the same name.

Two guys, connected by a name and hundreds of years, somehow stand at the end of man's beginning, and the beginning of man's end. But...it's funny? Also kind of a nightmare. But mostly funny? A funny science-FACTion nightmare about the end of everything, but how that's all kind of okay.
