the utopian comic issue 04If you’ve been following the ongoing exploits of young James Douglas in the weekly webcomic The Utopian, you’ve seen some crazy stuff happen to the teen over the last year. He endured a seeming near-death experience with shades of “A Christmas Carol,” was tasked with fighting evil by a cloud-walking mystery man, and stumbled upon strange powers while tracking down a neo-Nazi terrorist.

We’re not going to give away the rest, but suffice it to say that in the fourth print issue of The Utopian, everything that’s been building for 18 months comes to a head in this final collection that both wraps up — and leaves open — the saga of our hero. And, yes, by the end of the story, James truly earns the mantle of “hero.”

The Utopian #4 offers 36 full-color pages of story, wrapped in a brand-new cover by creator Pj Perez and colorist Tiarra Wantz, for only $5. Pre-order your copy before Oct. 31 and it’ll come to your mailbox personally signed by Mr. Perez.
