LIANA KANGAS AT NOVEL: MARIKO BETWEEN WORLDS
Join us as we welcome LIANA KANGAS on FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 3 at 6:00 pm to celebrate the launch of her new book MARIKO BETWEEN WORLDS
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Mariko and Rem are breaking up but they have one last night together in the Mall of Portals, an inter-dimensional consumerist heaven full of unending vice, before Rem takes his new job doing data entry on the Moon of Plenty. With a couple hours to spare, no personal repercussions and entire dimensions at their fingertips — what’s the worse that could happen?
This out of this world rom-com is straight out of the year 2099, but speaks to a feeling that time will never change. The fear of loss. Artist Liana Kangas teams up with author Matthew Erman to create a world of lust and star dust. Find yourself navigating the human condition with the most out of this galaxy characters. Mariko Between Worlds is a realistic down to earth graphic novel completely off the wall swarming with magic portals and sexy aliens.
