Jarod Parks is the personal secretary of young, beautiful dancer Mona Travis and actually lives with her. A middle-aged man, apparently unmarried, childless, in an apparently unromantic, sexless relation with a beautiful young woman. What, exactly, is the deal with Jarod?
"Er... queer!" says Mona on page three. Never mind.

"Your punishment begins with your death, Jarod! And it will be utterly horrible!" She wasn't exaggerating. Having your consciousness fused to your bones for vigintillions of years, being infinitely alone, sounds apalling.

There are up to forty thousand people in persistent vegetative states just in the US and of those up to one in five is covertly conscious, sometimes for years and years.

Kongrats on what looks to be another fine collection!

Congratulations on the book!

Honestly, how long would it take me to become friends (again) with Mona's ghost? If she's always going to be hanging out, then I'm basically going to chat with her all the time. I'll eventually run out of snarky replies to "you're going to die horribly" but I'll do my best!

I like how Mona gets to come back in sexy dance wear. I can only hope when I come back as a ghost it's in a burlap sack, I don't think I can pull off the sexy dance wear.

I think the story missed a fun visual by not making a "space" future graveyard instead of just showing a future city. Yet, by the way, the ending is probably one of the worst fates I can imagine.

Some decent good girl art in this, but the rest of the art is relatively static. Certainly a good ghostly tale.

The off-beat coloring works very well on this one for my tastes. Beautiful drawings. relentless plot. I especially liked the ghost flying in the opposite direction of the plane. Thank you so much Mr.K.!

I dig the odd art. It is a little stiff, but I found it really compelling anyway. Kind of like a story told in playing cards or Byzantine icons. There's a grotesque nature to the character art that feels Ditko-like in spirit, even though the draftsmanship isn't particularly similar. I love the first, and very colorful, buried cadaver panel at the bottom of page five.

I was delighted that they included the future in the last frame. After running the seasons it was an unexpected next step, and felt like storytelling gumption to me. How overused was this plot point at the time? Michigan J. Frog didn't appear till the post-code, after all.
