An artist’s discovery.

When struggling artist June is injured in a severe car accident that leaves her boyfriend in a coma, she begins to experience strange visual phenomena. Soon, she’s able to see that we are all actually living in a computer simulation.

June must set out on a journey of possibility and peril into the metaphysical layers of the simulation to reach the world’s creator and save her true love from death.

One of the most exciting and innovative independent comics of the last decade, sees Zack Kaplan return to Vault Comics after his recent celebrated series Mindset, joined by a slate of phenomenal artists including Fabiana Mascolo, Toni Fejzula, Vincenzo Riccardi, Dennis Menheere, Jorge Corona, Luana Vecchio, and Liana Kangas.

Each issue of this ambitious series sees these artists working in tandem, handing off scenes back and forth, designing environments and characters for each other, as part of the narrative structure of this mind-bending story about simulation theory, the creative spirit, and the struggle for self-determination.
