Here’s the thing – I lettered this strip for ACES Weekly by writer Joshua Spiller and artist Roland Bird. So there you have my ‘vested interest’ out of the way.
“Silence… silence and poetry fills my thoughts…”
From a deeply surreal and disturbing dream, a woman awakes in a strange sleeping pod, in a disconcertingly deserted laboratory. She has no idea who she is. And even her own mind now feels alien to her…
Set in a faintly estranging London of the not-too-distant future, Symbolism Rewired is a cerebral and grounded piece of sci-fi, that both explores how symbolism may be at the root of human consciousness, and operates as a kind of low-key biography of a fictional future human being.
So now the strip is back to being creator owned (as all ACES WEEKLY strips are, David Lloyd just asks for an exclusive for two years) and Joshua has collected the strip to be read in one sitting and made it available via Gumroad.
The complete strip is available for a mere £1.50 and it is recommended.
