OR – The Great Divide Signing

Writer Ben Fisher appears at Cosmic Monkey Comics to sign copies of his new graphic novel The Great Divide on Saturday August 26th from noon till 2:00 PM.

In the near future, humanity awakens to the horrifying reality that the faintest touch from another’s skin results in agonizing death. The survivors isolate themselves, many driven mad by fragments of memories absorbed from those they’ve killed. Two years after the “Divide”, a pair of thieves stumble upon the means to save their species… but not everyone is eager to see the old world order restored! Includes free digital bonus content to download, including the song “Teotwawki” (mood music for the apocalypse), a coloring book, RPG content, a self help book from the perspective of villain Sebastian Gibbs, dystopian short stories, and a song by the band City Below!

It’s 1950’s Las Vegas & the mob enlisted former circus attractions as their aces in the hole. These SideShows had a little secret — they really did have the abilities they pretended to. High rollers, lounge singers, cigarettes, alcohol, and superpowers. Welcome to Las Vegas. Packed with extras not available in the retail version and limited to 100 copies!
