Ray Spass' life was a complete mess - a crumbling screenwriting career, a failed love, an inoperable brain tumor - but that was before the fictional hero of his screenplay, Max Nomax, showed up in real life, insisting that his tumor is a data bullet containing the secrets of Nomax's past. Hunted by the most deadly super-villain in the galaxy, Spass begins uncovering Nomax's twisted life story in an effort to shrink the tumor before it kills him. But as Spass dives deeper into the madness that surrounds Nomax, he finds that our semi-fictional hero is not all he appears to be!

But, more's the pity, Morrison and Frazer have found neither the words nor the images in which to say it. Read Full Review
