Phil’s Reviews: Stuff I Bought #308

The Surface #1 — Writer: Ales Kot;  Art: Langdon Foss;  Colors: Jordie Bellaire Quite a few first issues again this week, with an interesting mix of sf, fantasy adventure and comedy. The Surface is sf, set in a near-future where everyone’s high-tech enough that the fad is “livelogging,” where you wear cameras and mics 24/7, and your whole life gets downloaded — but not everyone is satisfied absorbing all that digital data, and there’s another reality trying to break through….
