Tune: Vanishing Point: 03/08/15
Tune: Vanishing Point by Derek Kirk Kim is the first of the Tune graphic novel series. It's about a young man in art school who decides to drop out an go his own when he's convinced he's learned everything he needs to have a kick-ass graphic design career.
Of course Andy promptly finds that it takes a lot more than a few classes and a student's portfolio to get a job, let alone a career! So after months of living at home his parents give him an ultimatum: find a job or move out.
The rest of Vanishing Point is the fallout of that demand. Sure, he finds a job but it's something right out of the Twilight Zone. He ends up being a Zoo attraction, on an alien world, in a different dimension, in a near perfect replica of his parents' home.
So there's a lot of schadenfreude at work here. Andy's set up at the biggest, most obnoxious poser ever. Then we get to sit back and watch him get it in the teeth as his world is turned upside down and inside out.
