Presentation and book signing by Thomas C. Jackson and Fritz McDonald
Join us for a presentation and book signing with Thomas C. Jackson and Fritz McDonald for their graphic novel 21841/2.
Imagine a country with a much greater distance between the haves and have nots. A government with no balance of power. A land radically shrunk by natural and human-made disasters…
In 2184½ the Deconstructed States of America look like a cross between The Road Warrior and Catch-22. They are ruled over by the Ones, descendants of today’s one percent who are amassing power in a supposedly powerless country. A radically shrunken land mass destroyed by environmental disasters, the country is home to Tribes fighting for scarce resources. And they are disappearing.
In this world, a young biker mechanic of mysterious origin rises. One day Amanda (going by her adopted name) encounters a dying man lost in the desert who claims he “made her.” Her life is forever changed. As she undertakes a journey across a ruined country to search for answers to the Ones’ real plans, will she discover the truth about her origins? Uncover a vast, nation-wide underground resistance movement? Bring the Tribes back together again and save the country?
