Two Great Graphic Novels
I've mentioned this to some folks, and CC also mentioned it recently: Big Head Press has begun serializing a number of graphic novels, each of which is continued each week. Two of the stories are by L Neil Smith, my favorite Sci-Fi author.
The first is Neil's first novel, The Probability Broach. It's been over ten years since I first read the print novel, but the graphic novel, drawn by Scott Bieser, is a lot of fun.
The second, not yet released in print, is Roswell, Texas. This one, like TPB, is an "alternate universe" story. It's set in a universe in which Texas remains an independent nation, which requires its citizens to carry a sidearm for personal protection, unless they declare themselves conscientious objectors.
Both novels are a lot of fun, and offer the reader a view of a possible libertarian society.
I await each week's installment of each story with a great deal of anticipation, much as many of you ladies wait for the next episode of As The World turns.
They've killed Freedom! Those bastards!
