A Season in Hell #137: In the OOOOOOZ

I've been a comic reader most of my life. Spiderman was my earliest hero, and it was he that took me through my formative years. I eventually made my way to Batman, via The Dark Knight series. That was some strong medicine, I tell you. Today, comics have made their way to the big screen, and it's like everyone is claiming that they've read every single issue of Ant Man, or Dr. Strange. There's money to be made, they'll tell ya!

Tonight, on my show, I'm happy to have Md Light, author of gen:oooz (pronounced gen ooooooooz). It's a dark tale of bioengineering gone wrong...or right, depending on how you see it. I love the dialectical approach. Md Light has his brain on hyperdrive for this one, as it's a strong story, full of deep symbolism from the very ancient to the futuristic utopian societies only Philip K. Dick could conjure up.

The interview takes up much of the first hour, along with lots of new music. The second hour and a half (I was on for an extra half hour tonight) is a grab bad of goodness.

There's something for the whole family.
