It's a literal trip of an issue when Lyla and Kadunud imbibe psilocybin during the
diabolical children's talent show...that turns deadly for the audience. The psychedelic state Lyla finds herself in leads to flashbacks about how she became who she is today and why she is such a seeker of truth in a world of growing chaos.

YOU ARE OBSOLETE is a spine-tingling thriller that evokes the eerie naturalism of 1970s horror films with a modern deadly digital twist. Written by Mathew Klickstein (Sony Pictures' Against the Dark, Slimed!, Springfield Confidential, Selling Nostalgia) and drawn by Evgeniy Bornyakov (DESCENDENT).

    You Are Obsolete looks at some interesting ideas as it goes on here, especially the changing nature of journalism over the late 2000s as social media began to replace a lot of it. Klickstein has no problem in calling out those behind it and with the host of things we've learned in the years since it's hard to not give the whole book a side-eye in general. I like the way the book unfolds and how Lyla is handling herself – basically getting worse and worse as it goes along – and it definitely feels like the stakes are incredibly high. But at the same point I really just want to see what the kids are working on to go big and wide with all the ramifications that come from it. Read Full Review

    All things considered this is a very good book. I loved the tone and tenor of the book and sincerely hope that the reference to The Twilight Zone was intentional. If you are a fan of social commentary, horror or science-fiction I would recommend this title to you. Read Full Review
