Details

A novel about the simple trick of changing ones mind and how so many of us fail to do so, living lives of useless waste and suffering, and causing more trouble than we solve or allow to go unarisen. About finding the responsibility of being human on earth and above and beyond all that - that all things are mind made. By ones own self is one's life created or destroyed. For one's own future is one ultimately responsible.

And here's an issue by issue description: the first five issues, plus #6 and #7 will form a loose prelude, dropping hints and introducing the protagonist and his current situation. (#1) It begins with Romero in art school, deciding to write because he is compelled. He is alone in a bad neighborhood, changes apartments and goes out and meets a girl. (#2) finishes the story of his meeting the girl, then a short intro to a story about a depressed bum, and a return to Romero's journal writing (#3) very experimental narrative techniques here, but ultimately describing Romero's falling out of art school, questioning his way of life, his new found 'comfort' which brings him a sense of insecurity more than anything else. He's used to pain and suffering and is a bit uncomfortable having even the smallest of pleasure. He sells some artwork and resolves to make even stronger efforts. (#4) Romero attains some calm tranquility and peace, re-ups his resolve to tell the 'story' and begins to lay it out. He's just come off a rough job, but has a plan coalescing. He has to get his shit together again and we meet the enigmatic Ish.(#5) A return to the homeland, an introduction to a brother, a mother, a grandmother, an aunt and an old friend of the family. More efforts to right himself, lives with girlfriend, gets tired of trying to write the novel and considers going back to art school.
