Every once in a great while I stumble upon a book or comic that truly amazes me. Whether it is the artwork or the storyline, sometimes I am simply flabbergasted. Strange Attractors has made it onto this short list. I read it the same afternoon that it arrived but found myself reading it again the next day. I’ve already loaned it out to a friend, something I seldom do, because the graphic novel is just that good and needs to be shared with the world.

Combining science fiction and mathematics, the story revolves around complexity theory as it applies to the metropolis of New York City. Basically, this means that every small action creates a chain reaction that affects the greater whole. The main character, Heller Wilson, is a young man working towards his postgraduate degree on this very concept. He seeks out a former professor from Columbia University, a Doctor Spencer Brownfield, who was a known expert on the subject before leaving his teaching position under mysterious circumstances.

27: Second Set #1
Written by Charles Soule
Art by Renzo Podesta
Cover by W. Scott Forbes
Image Comics
Release date: September 14, 2011
Price: $3.99

Guitarist William Garland is back to playing music once again, but not to the level of fame where he once was.

In 27: Second Set Issue #1, William Garland returns to his former life: playing guitar and being passionate about the music. Unfortunately, Garland isn’t as famous as he once was. He thinks his life is just as bad as when he couldn’t play guitar at all. Garland craves the fame of being known and wants it badly. When an accident happens with the magical contraption built into his chest, Garland uses its power to catapult himself back into the limelight but unknowingly catches the eyes of a villain.

The previous 27 miniseries was a favorite of mine earlier this year and I was hoping for another volume of the series. I got my wish. 27: Second Set is an excellent start to what seems to be another thrilling ride. William Garland seems to be obsessed with getting back to his famous status that he once claimed, but is causing a lot of road bumps along the way.
