Everything Zach Feld imagines - impossibly - shows up somewhere else. It's as if someone is reading his mind and selling his incredible thoughts to the highest bidder.

His friends and family think Zach is a freeloader with delusions of grandeur - making up one weird paranoiac story after another to defend his directionless life. They might be right. But when Zach begins to dig deeper into the mystery, he discovers that they might be very, very wrong. Has someone been sneaking around inside Zach's mind?

Visionary storyteller DUNCAN ROULEAU (Metal Men, The Nightmarist, X-Factor) creates this five-issue series about one man's quest to find the people responsible for raiding his thoughts and relegating him to a life of being the great unknown.

    Rouleau is primarily known for his work as an artist for both DC and Marvel Comics, and his art is also a strong point for this issue. I mean, save for one page, the whole thing is blue for some reason I do not understand, but other than this colouring choice, the art is great. The style is fairly cartoonish, which allows for some wonderful stereotyping of people Zach feels the need to be in opposition for. But this itself is played upon with Felds parents turning out to be cardboard cut outs. The experience is very cool and I appreciated how Rouleaus style allows for this moment to be as great as it is. But at the same time, Rouleaus artistic style allows for his characters to be very expressive in terms of emotion. Wonderful art to match a great story. Read Full Review

    The book definitely has a few gems and overall is very good. There were really only two stories that did nothing for me personally, but they could very well be someone else’s style. If you enjoy anthology books then you definitely don’t want to miss out on this one and hopefully a few of these stories that could be expanded on will be; it would be a shame to see the ground work of this issue go to waste.
