Meet Paul Krutcher, a regular schmoe who’s got a little problem with gravity. Not a superhero yarn, just an average guy learning to deal with being planet Earth’s first flying human being. What would you do if you could fly? Welcome to a Bizarre New World! Cover price $3.50.

Bizarre New World is the story of a regular schmo who gains the ability to fly. He doesn’t have any psychological hangups. He doesn’t nurse vengeful dreams. Writer Skipper Martin doesn’t embellish his story with typical superhero trappings. Instead, he takes a strong, simple premise and manipulates it in entertaining, even whimsical ways.

Skipper Martin’s charming, straightforward style is engaging and innocent without being naïve. He also has a great sense of humor, and allowing the protagonist Paul’s imagination to wander often ends in entertainingly drawn sight gags.

Christopher Provencher’s pencils perfectly fit the cleverly understated writing style and average-joe hero. He’s Frank Quitely with more raw talent and a cartoonier look. His layout work also fits the writing like two puzzle pieces.

It’s a rare joy to see creators working on something this exciting, this new, this unknown, and this much fun. Bravo, Bizarre New World, and the story it hath in it.

Worth the money? Absolutely. Give this creative newcomer a shot.
