Myopia #1 is set in the future where all new contact lenses have replaced the mobile phone for calling and getting info.

Bill is still old school and writes everything down while his friend Ledge fully embraces the new technology. Ledge is obviously making deals behind his Bills back and has a meeting with a real nasty looking bloke who just screams villain. Bills son Matthew is looking around his dad’s workshop and finds a book just before someone comes in and torches the place.

Two years later and Bills protégé James Chase is going for a job alongside Ledge and comes with a glowing letter from Bill himself recommending him for the job which of course is enough for Bill to give him the job (not knowing what he did to Bill in the past)

Ledge shows Bills wife the letter and she confirms that it is genuine and while Ledge asks her a more important question Matthew is upstairs trying on new lenses he found with his dad’s stuff and immediately has to follow the images and puzzles that he now sees because of the contacts.

Myopia is a pretty good first issue, an original story/idea and well drawn and laid out and I like the futuristic setting

About Martin Cameron

A 34 year old manchild from Scotland, bravely fighting the on going war between a love of comics and space to keep them. Boxes are filling and thanks to the digital age we live in so is the harddrive! I love finding a new comic to obsess over and rediscovering old comics to immerse myself in from the very first issue. A healthy mix of the seven dwarves of geekdom all wrapped up in one kilted bundle of amusement
