Staff Reviews


Check out how local comics hero Jeremy Sorese envisions our interaction with technology in a future that's not so far away and yet not quite here. Stay to see his hopes for our interaction with each other, with what comes to us naturally and what we'll probably never get over. Within the lilting lines of his highly recognizable and personal brush style, everything looks great, despite the looming robotic uprise.

Description


Curveball is a science fiction graphic novel telling the story of a waiter named Avery coping with the ending of a difficult relationship. Having spent years attempting to build something substantial with an indecisive sailor named Christophe, Avery stubbornly holds on despite the mounting evidence against him. The idea of the relationship has eclipsed it's reality and in Avery's already troubled life, the allure of something dependable is a powerful force.
Curveball focuses on the duality of hope and delusion. How ignorance is integral to surviving our day to day lives but can be incredibly destructive if allowed to blossom into 'optimism'.
This is the gorgeous debut of a talented young cartoonist telling the most universal of tales: a love story.
