       Additional Information  
      In vividly compressed comic form, takes the reader on a contemporary quest that is as cyberspatially and pharmaceutically fantastic as anything Ulysses encountered on this trek home from Troy.

    In a daring cross between Voltaire's Candide, Stanley Kubrick's Dr. Strangelove, follows the post-post modern exploits of our hero, WILL, a medicated college student on his heroic quest to uncover the truth behind a new virus that threatens to wipe-out all of humanity: IS (Information Sickness).

    Helping him in his calling are a whole lot of prescription drugs ¯ his faithful companion and always-handy, chatty laptop, Spunk® ¯ and his virology lab partner and centerfold, wish-fulfillment fantasy ultra-babe, Naomi.

    With all of contemporary existence muffled by feel-good medications, deconstructionist double-talk, fat free food, and a never-ending faith in the wisdom of the marketplace, who are you gonna call to save the world?
