Power Out GN (2010) comic books
1st printing. Story and art by Nathan Schreiber. Fourteen and friendless, Justin doesn't want to run away from his domineering family - he wants them to run away from him. When a massive, extended power out grants him his wish, the quietly introverted teen must learn to survive in a world he's alwats tried to escape. Justin encounters a unique collection of friends and tormentors alike in his seemingly quaint New England suburb, including a brazen young neighbor uninhibited by her inability to speak English, a dead woman who cheerfully haunts his wet dreams, and the eccentric holdouts in a town that has been evacuated by the military. Deliberate, bleak, but suffused with all the inherent humor and humiliation of adolescence, Power Out captures the exhilaration and terror of discovering how big the world is for the first time. Softcover, 5 1/2-in. x 8-in., 84 pages, PC. Mature Readers Cover price $9.95.
