    Hey folks! I know I'm not on here very often (I find message-boards in general to be kind of intimidating, TBH). But I felt like maybe I should come out of my hole to tell you all about a comic that I think a lot of you will enjoy, given that Whitechapel members seem likely to dig intelligent sci-fi comics and "mad science" in general.

    First Law Of Mad Science

    First Law Of Mad Science is a sci-fi/horror/adventure comic about super-science gone weird. That I happen to be co-writing this comic, or that we're currently running a Kickstarter campaign, are in no way biasing my recommendation, I assure you. You can absolutely trust me. ;)

    Here's a brief synopsis for the book:

    Super-scientist George Baker’s newest invention, electronic retinal implants known as “Cyber-Eyes,” are nothing short of amazing. So amazing, in fact, and so cheap and easy to get, that some 40% of the population has gotten them within their first year on the market. But they aren’t perfect. Far from it.

    When things start going inexplicably and bizarrely wrong with the original test-subjects, George and his family will have to find out why before the problem spreads and causes world-wide panic.

    Along the way they’ll uncover ancient civilizations, corporate conspiracies, insane cults, other-dimensional creatures, awesome robots, subterranean cities, and Things Man Was Not Meant To Know.

    It’s going to be a wild ride.

    If you'd like to see what some other folks have said about First Law (what, you don't trust me?), you can find links to reviews for issue one on our press page. You can also read the first eight pages for yourself here.

    If this looks like something you'd be into, please consider pledging a couple of bucks to our Kickstarter project. We've got just over two weeks left to meet our goal for chapter two, and we could really use your support!

    Also potentially of interest: My co-writer recently recorded a little ditty, to the tune of Hall & Oates' "Rich Girl," singing about the comic while shamelessly begging you for your money. It's kind of amusing:
