This Week's Read: RASL / by Jaz Malone


You might remember Jeff Smith from his award-winning masterpiece, Bone. RASL is another great story, but it's geared toward an adult audience.

Jumping from universe to universe, he evades capture while working to stop his old lab partner from rebuilding a machine that would destroy entire states at a time. It's pretty wild. If you're into historical science fiction, cool guys with tattoos, damsels in distress, and inter-dimensional noir shootouts, this is probably your speed.
