Three days later all communication ceased. The project, seen as an embarrassing and costly failure, was erased from history and forgotten. Until today, when Scott mysteriously plummets to earth and emerges, unscathed, and hellbent on one purpose… to return to the anomaly in space.” We talk about how the book came to be, discuss the comic’s fascinating story, and what the future might hold for Kayless. It’s an excellent science-fiction story worthy of your support, so I recommend you go to Kickstarter at this link after you listen to our interview!
