"Basically what it is is just the story about one day in the life of this guy who sort of mysteriously wakes up in the middle of a wheat field with no idea how he got there. He gets quickly befriended, I guess, by Christian, an ex-Bible salesman who pulls him along on a meth-induced crime spree. And, y’know, there’s people out to kill them, he has no idea what is going on, full on suffering from amnesia and not knowing why he’s there and why these people are after him. He’s just sort of a victim, dragged along from one crime scene to another.

There’s more to it than that, but it’s kind of like… I don’t know the best way to describe this succinctly or to put this into thoughts, but it’s kind of like in a lot of ways — I realized halfway through — it’s tonally sort of a lot like all the 80’s cult films that I grew up watching. Just that sort of, just craziness going on for all four issues."

I'm imagining either William Daniels or John Goodman as Christian.

Both work really well.

Woah! Did he just snort three lines of coke in one dramatic sweep? What a champ!

Also this feels to me like exactly the sort of thing that gets optioned for a TV series. American heartland setting, intense thriller intrigue, people getting shot, shock moments, it's uncanny.

There's a story like that about Hunter S Thompson...

'[Ralph Steadman] remembers, with surprising affection, the time he hooked Thompson up with a dealer in New York in 1971. Inside the dealer's apartment, they found a glass coffee table with six lines of cocaine chopped out. "So I said to him, 'Well, there you are, Hunter. Is that what you wanted?' He says, 'Fine. Excellent.' And then he gets a dollar bill, gets down on his hands and knees, and he goes SNORT! One … SNORT! Two … SNORT! Three … SNORT! Four … Then he stops, looks up at the drug dealer and says, 'Ralph doesn't like drugs, you know.' And he hoovered up the other two!"'

Whoa, Simon Roy drew this! I really like the guy. He's from my area, I've met him a couple times and his work is really good.
