BEST BETS: "Jessica Jones," "Big Trouble/Escape from New York" & More October 2016 Highlights
I’ll save you some trouble and get you started with page 1 (above) of Power Nap, the new webcomic from Maritza Campos (College Roomies from Hell!!!) and Bachan, a Mexican artist who has done work for both DC Comics and the Mexican edition of Mad Magazine. The story has a great sci-fi premise: In the future, nobody needs to sleep—except for one guy! Pills called Z-Sup allow everyone to work 16-hour days for a large, faceless corporation, but our hero, Drew, is allergic to them. With just 15 pages up so far, we have characters, backstory, some bits of over-the-top humor, and the promise of some beautifully drawn office-life satire. And since the comic is just getting under way, you won’t have to stay up late to get up to speed.
