TIMELY TALES OF THE POSTHUMANS #8: “TRAVELLER”
OUT NOW ON GUMROAD AND StORENVY!

Written by KITTY BURROUGHS
Art by MINUIKO

Few things happen by chance. Jack Willard may believe that he was shoved into the future without any rhyme or reason, but that's because he doesn't remember the trips. Jack doesn't know how many times it took-- how many dark paths, how many deaths-- before he got it right. He doesn't know how much Newt sacrificed to ensure that he'd land on solid ground.

Newt didn't do it for thanks, or out of obligation. He did what he did out of love. In the end, he didn't regret it.

Vee Kim prides herself on doing the right thing. As the lieutenant of the Valkyrie Squad, she is charged with protecting those who cannot protect themselves. She may have started out on the wrong side of the law, but that only means that she has an intimate understanding of the situations and circumstances that lead people to criminal activity. Now that she is a Collector, she holds herself to a higher standard. Of all her squadmates, she is the one most known for not letting the perp get away.

Except for that one time, with that one boy. Once upon a time, Vee Kim made an exception for a blue-eyed boy who’d been kind to her when she’d needed it the most. She let him go, but he keeps coming back.

He’s kind of a giant pain in her ass, really.

They call her a villain, but Gloria has never really bought into that jazz. She doesn’t believe in hatching nefarious schemes, foiling do-gooders, or setting up shop in an evil lair of her own design. Gloria has never forced anyone to do anything— not on purpose, at least. She always says please first. They always forget that in the movies based on the tragic life story of the Femme Fatale. Gloria knows, because she’s watched them all. They never get it right. Sometimes, she thinks they don’t even try.

TIMELY TALES #3: GRINDER

Written by KITTY BURROUGHS

“Weird” has been the Petrov family’s bread and butter for generations, so Maks thought that he had a good handle on what was and wasn’t generally accepted as “normal”. He assumed that attending Maillardet’s Academy would mean (finally) making friends who would embrace his unique abilities. Mostly, he finds that everyone’s got their own definition for “freak”.

For her entire academic career, Catherine Newmeyer was promised that the world would be her oyster the moment she had a diploma in her hands. Unfortunately, the “real” world isn’t the crackable mollusk she thought it was. The job market isn’t kind to posthumans, so instead of becoming the Next Big Thing, Catherine works as a bouncer at a strip club. When one of the girls doesn’t show up for work one day, disappointment becomes the least of her worries.

Sofia likes a boy. (Which is a bigger deal than you’d think.) Sofia likes a boy named Roy Grant. (Who is super cute, which is also a big deal.) Roy Grant is the Champ, and he likes her back. (Majorly big deal.) The only problem is, “Roy” Grant doesn’t exist. Roxanne Grant isn’t totally sure who she is, but she knows one thing: she’s head over heels for a girl named Sofia.
