Fade to Black, Awake in the Dark #1 by Tim McBain & L.T. Vargas

Fade to Black (Awake in the Dark) (Volume 1) - Tim McBain, L.T. Vargus

Fade to Black, Awake in the Dark #1 by Tim McBain & L.T. Vargas published by Smarmy Press is a funny, thought provoking story about Jeff Grobnegger who has strange dreams & some form of seizures.  He has repetitive dreams where he's in an alley being strangled to death.  "Live.  Die.  Repeat."

 

I gave this intriguing book five stars.

 

When he comes to in the supermarket he meets Glenn Floyd.  "I sit up, & he claps me on the shoulder instead of a handshake.  One of those hard shoulder claps usually reserved for awkward encounters between gym teachers & students."

 

This has snarky, but hilarious laugh out loud dialogue.  Simultaneously it holds up many of our fears to the light, especially about loneliness & the deliberate isolation of an introverted personality.

 

"I don't think most people want friends.  They just want people to listen when they talk. They don't want a connection, they want an audience."
