DEATH DAY is the science fiction of the future. Sam Hiti's comic, published first online and now in print, is a grand, bizarre, frequently jarring trip into a bleak and familiar future. Unlike so much of today's science fiction, DEATH DAY doesn't pander. The reader is dropped into the middle of the action like so much cannon-fodder, and left to deduce, engage, and survive the text. There is no preface outlining the events between now and the speculative 'then', no glossary of terms, no mouthpiece characters clumsily over-explaining the unfamiliar. The events simply confront the reader as they unfold, and context is gradually revealed along the way.
DEATH DAY is uncompromising and unapologetic. Do yourself a favor and read it.
