Void Trip
Author: Ryan O'Sullivan  
Artist: Plaid Klaus 
Upcoming Release Date: June 5, 2018

Synopsis: From writer RYAN O'SULLIVAN (Turncoat, The Evil Within, Warhammer 40,000) and illustrator PLAID KLAUS (Turncoat) comes the story of Ana and Gabe, the last two humans left alive in the galaxy. They're low on fuel, they're low on food, and they're low on psychedelic space froot, but they're still determined to make it to the promised land: hippy-paradise super-planet Euphoria. This is the story of their journey, the friends and enemies they made along the way, and how the universe responded to those who dared to live freely within it.


Review: This graphic novel is Harold & Kumar meets Saga. The last two humans in the universe are traveling together in search of Euphoria, a planet where everything is good. On their journey they meet plenty of odd alien characters while being chased by another odd alien character in white. During all of this, they utilize the intoxicating properties of froot. 

There are some interesting moral and philosophical quandaries addressed in this comic. And they're mostly through the eyes of high characters. The framework of the storytelling is also interesting in how it ends. 

I give this graphic novel a 4/5. Great artwork that matches the trippy story.
