AGERANGE: Ages 17 to adult.

A blood-soaked beginning paves the way for this gritty SF tale. Sam Chance and his band �The Raging Hormones� are trying to get a gig. They have one devoted fan--a follower named Yusuf, who has a little problem with loan sharks. When Yusuf is forced to pay them back, Sam steps in and stands up for his friend, and proceeds to beat the bad guys--who are much larger and stronger than him--senseless. After the fight, Sam starts bleeding out of his eyes, nose and mouth and has a seizure. When he awakens, he finds that he�s in the hospital and has been diagnosed with the terminal SKAR virus. Soon after, a mysterious man offers to cryogenically freeze Sam, in hopes of finding a cure, to which he agrees. When Sam awakens from his cryo-sleep, he finds this world is not the world he remembers. Hine has created a dark, apocalyptic world, relying heavily on character action to drive the plot forward; there is little attention to setting, with most panels having a blank background, giving this story a universally scary feel. Though an intriguing plot, this story contains some disturbing elements that may be better suited to an adult audience. Scenes of sex and extreme violence--including violence against animals and the elderly--may upset some readers. Reviewer: Jennifer Sweeney
