I'm pretty interested in Science Fiction. Not just in terms of looking at the fantasy of science fiction, but I love researching all things sci-fi. I'm a huge junkie reading about space colonization/exploration, I love reading about "future weapons," artificial intelligence and more. When Jarred Lujan (Dryfoot) DMed me a birthday present (which I forgot about because of my painkillers) and then I finally got to check out his new project, this is going to hit a lot of the right notes for me...and you'll find out why below!
Crash and Troy (Action Lab-Danger Zone)
The book opens in what appears to be the middle of some sort of heist or break-in/out. We meet the titular characters Crash (a human mutant) and Troy 3.0 (who is a human consciousness turned into AI software).
I instantly know I'm going to love the book for two reasons. First, are the small things we get to know about the characters (like in Dryfoot). Second, the banter back and forth between Crash and Troy is absolutely hilarious as they are working through whatever their plan may be!
I definitely think you should check this book out if you enjoy high action books, science fiction books, or just hilarious dialogue. I love the premise of Crash and Troy, but the way Jared has written a buddy-mercenary-comedy is really next level. What Troy does to get he and Crash apprehended made me laugh at length. The number of shots fired between the partners-in-crime had me in stitches.
Kyler's art is able to both accentuate some high-stakes action sequences as well as embrace the absurdity of the dialogue (watching cat videos while fighting android guards). I really think there is a strong connection between the artist and the writer, and it shows that they've been really developing this idea to be truly kick-ass (see Jared's newsletter for their origin story).
