What happens when a psychic who can’t control her powers gets institutionalized?

Bryce Dekker is a young woman that has suddenly been given extraordinary power, a psychic link to her surroundings. In her desire to help others, she becomes entangled in a murder case where her knowledge of specifics has made her the #1 suspect.

Now mandated to undergo observation at Werthem Glen Sanitarium, Bryce is at the mercy of her fellow patients. Surrounded by madness and unable to control her power, she is having a hard time separating her thoughts from the insanity around her.

Bryce has found only one way to keep track of reality, and that’s by keeping a record of the visions and voices in her head. She has become the vessel for those around her, telling the stories of their illness. She is the biographer of their insanity. Their stories have become hers, and Bryce’s only hope is that by embracing the madness, she finds her sanity.

Asylum Doors is a serial comic we'll run every Wednesday.  See the previous installment here.  Stay tuned for next week's installment.

 

Chris Prunckle is a graphic designer, illustrator and comic book artist banished to the suburbs of Chicago. Though an advertising industry minion by day, he slaves his nights away creating a mad little world.  He’s previously worked on the comics Fisted, Bonesetter, and The Scarab.  Follow him at @midjipress.

 
THE WAY WE SLEEP - release and party

By Victor David Giron

Happy holidays! Happy new year!

Our new book, our most ambitious from a cost and size perspective:  a 10x10, 240 page glossy anthology of stories, comics, and interviews about beds and the things that happen there - THE WAY WE SLEEP is now available on a limited basis, only from our webstore and a few select indie stores primarily in Chicago.  It features stand-out pieces from acclaimed authors, graphic artists, and comedians including Etgar Keret, Ron Barrett, Jeffrey Brown, Steve Himmer, Billy Lombardo, Joe LoTruglio, Michael Showalter, The Residents, Mary Roach, David Wain, Brandi Wells, and Julia Wertz.  Edited by husband-wife duo C. James Bye and Jessa Bye.

It will retail at $20 but can be ordered now from our store for only $10, until the end of the year, so next week.

For those of you in Chicago, we're having a release party this Friday December 28 at LATE BAR 3534 W. Belmont Ave. starting at 10pm;  a pajama themed dance party no less.  Copies of TWWS will be available for only $10.  Hope to see you there.

MAY WE SHED - The Atlantic's Best of the Small Press

By Victor David Giron

Yes, The Atlantic Wire chose our MAY WE SHED THESE HUMAN BODIES by Amber Sparks as 2012's Best Small Press Debut.  We're not surprised, because we love this story collection.  Ms. Sparks is a fantastic writer.  All we did was make her writing look pretty.  Onward and upward.
