In the waning days of the school year, I am finding anything to do to distract my mind from grading....why? Because when students turn in 1043245802345 assignments late, it becomes daunting, and I'm a procrastinator!!!! Lucky for me, I received a preview copy of a new indie graphic novel!
I am a big fan of alternate history style tales (like what if the result of X battle changed, and we have a new timeline etc.). Blowback offers a mind-bending time trap in the Bermuda Triangle. An absolutely WILD tale of the impact of both people and technology when a convergence of 21st century Marines, 20th century technology and 18th century inhabitants of Bermuda converge in an explosive tale!

Artist, Kev Hopgood has worked on Action Force, Doctor Who, and 2000 AD, but is most well known as a penciller on Iron Man. During his run on that book, he co-created War Machine and the Hulkbuster Armor with Len Kaminski, both of which are featured prominently in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Colorist, Charlie Kirchoff has brought many titles to life, including Star Wars Adventures, Star Trek Year Five, and Back to the Future: Tales from the Time Train, as well as the Image series, Secret Identities and The Hard Place.
If you like high-octane action reads, you should definitely check out this book. It's got several low and high level conflicts, its got romance, an epic final battle, and an appearance of both Ben Franklin and George Washington. I was not expecting to read a gem like this today, and I'm infinitely glad I did.
