Destiny – a TG trip back to the 1960s

TG fiction and comics are full of clichés, and that is fine with me. But sometimes there comes a long a completely original concept that blows your mind. The latest comic by Femur and Smooch is like that.

I have never seen anything like it. The storytelling is great, the illustrations spot on, and the historical settings impeccable.

There are limits to what I can tell you without giving the game away, but the story takes place in the late 1960s in USA. Chad is searching for his missing brother Jeremy, and a meeting with a girl in San Fransisco leads him to a hippie commune in a remote part of Marine County. This collective seems to be run by a man called Max, but for some reason all the other members are women – sexy women, beautiful women, attractive women.

An important part of the story takes part in a Alice in Wonderland kind of LSD hallucination.  That is what it looks like, anyway. For what is really going on, you have to read the whole comic.

This is a so-called Premium Comic from TG Comics. You have to pay for the 75 pages of creativity, but I assure you, it is worth the $ 12.95 they are asking for.

There is a free preview here.
