R.E.M. Debuting At NYCC

R.E.M. is a psychological thriller written by Ryan Colucci (Harbor Moon) and drawn by Zsombor Huska (Saint Chaos). It’s a hardcover graphic novel that is 176 pages long. This original graphic novel stars Michael Letto, a genius neuroscientist who lost the love of his life and has grown extremely paranoid. His fears are about to get worse after he invents a chair that can allow the user a full-night of sleep in mere minutes (can I have that?). Now, the military and a religious group are after his invention.

But R.E.M. is not just a psychological thriller. The framing and look of the story are based on 50’s film noir and it has science-fiction elements.

R.E.M. was funded using Kickstarter. The campaign is over, but the graphic novel managed to reach an astonishing $17,569. They only needed $7,000! The reasoning was probably the great perks offered by the creators, including some of Zsombor Huska’s gorgeous artwork on cell phone cases and t-shirts.
