Afterlife

We were lucky enough to have Stormcrow Hayes on our show on 9/1/2007. If you haven't checked out his (non traditional) manga Afterlife you are really missing out! This twisted and unusual look into what happens when we die is like nothing you have ever seen before. From the character design by Rob Steen (one of our main characters, Thaddeus, has a bullet hole in his head while another main character, Mercutio, is burnt to a crisp) to the mysteries that surround them you won't be able to put the book down. Imagine if there was no heaven and no hell--everyone who dies all end up in the same place looking just as they did when they died. This is the world of Afterlife.

So far only part one is out. You can pick it up at Barnes & Noble, Amazon, or get it straight from Tokyopop. Part 2 won't be out for a while but we'll keep you updated. Plans are to have Stormcrow back on the show right before it's out and if we're lucky he'll come back for some geek talk before that!

For now be sure to check out Afterlife. It's mix of philosophy, history, and humor will keep you interested and the images will keep you staring.

Geek World highly recommends it!
