Fearscape

Henry Henry’s Fearscape is the greatest work of this era; too bad he’s a plagiarist.

The Fearscape is a world beyond our own, populated by manifestations of our worst fears. Once per generation, The Muse travels to Earth, discovers our greatest Storyteller, and takes them with her to the Fearscape to battle these fear-creatures on our behalf. All has been well for eons, until The Muse encounters Henry Henry—a plagiarist with delusions of literary grandeur. Mistaking him for our greatest Storyteller, she ushers him into the Fearscape. Doom follows.

Reviews

“The whole book feels and reads like a dark fairy tale. Will Henry step up to the plate and be the hero that the Fearscape needs or will he live down to everyone’s expectations. Whatever the outcome, this story is intriguing.”

Comic Crusaders

“There’s some good depth here, and I’m pleased to see that the Fearscape is adept at regurgitating the archetypes and symbols we’d expect without assembling them into a defined form we’ve seen before […] everything blends together seamlessly.”

Outright Geekery

“Fearscape #2 builds on one of the year’s best debuts to deliver another adventure in metafiction, one perfectly tailored for an indie comic audience. The protagonist’s imposter syndrome is so ugly and sincere that writerly types can’t help but relate, regardless of how painful it becomes, and there’s real honest beauty in that. 9/10”

Batman’s Bookcase

“I liked FEARSCAPE so much I called @JamesTheFourth right after I finished the first issue. Kudos.”
