A new Si-Fi epic in the tradition of the old Heavy Metal Magazine comic strips.
- Created by John Mahoney
The comic "Zentropa" is a psychedelic, stream of consciousness, head trip, where the viewer is encouraged to participate in the bizarre storytelling. Two space explorers try and figure out what's happening to their planet as odd organic growths begin appearing everywhere. Is this a biological attack from another race or something coming from within their own planet? As the story evolves, invasions and war break out, as these explorers try and figure out what this all means… why is there world crumbling around them?
This is in the tradition of the old Heavy Metal magazine comic book stories, where you think you know what's going on, then the stories take these bizarre, unexpected twists and turns… leaving the viewer to ponder and come up their own conclusion of what they just witnessed. Similar to visual poetry. This is why there are no word bubbles or panel descriptions.
When John was eight years old, he would stare at a single page of a Marvel Avenger Comic and imagine these amazing characters in these wild surreal scenarios. He hopes to give this experience to a new audience. Allowing them to come up with a concrete story in their own minds.
