Incredible Doom Collection Due
I wrote about Incredible Doom, a story about 90s kids using early internet bulletin boards, over three years ago. And this is why you should have a distinctive title, because when I saw a listing for the collected graphic novel in the latest Previews catalog, I vaguely remembered it. I’m excited to see the whole story! (Because I love computer history.) Here’s the description:
Allison is drowning under the weight of her manipulative stage magician father. When he brings home the family’s first computer, she escapes into a thrilling new world where she meetings Samir, a like-minded new online friend who has just agreed to run away from home with her.
After moving to a new town and leaving all of his friends behind, Richard receives a mysterious note in his locker with instructions on how to connect to “Evol BBS,” a dial-in bulletin board system, and meets a fierce punk named Tina who comes into his life and shakes his entire worldview loose.
Unlikely alliances, first love, and minor crime sprees abound in this teen graphic novel debut about making connections while your world is falling apart.
