One must ask oneself “What am I?” We seek definition, so we can grasp understanding. With this understanding comes knowledge and power, however to define something is to give it limits. Are you just just your name, your job, your role, a random homo sapien clinging to the surface of some tiny blue green marble spinning around a flicker of light in a universe so expansive its sheer scope would give even the biggest egomaniac an existential nightmare? I reject this. We can be more, and live in a world without confines. This world exists within out minds. Our dreams reflect reality and show us what could be.
To ask what is “The Epic Beyond” is to question that which lies on the boarder between reality and fantasy. The better question is ask what does it mean? Nothing, everything, both and neither. That which is fictional can be real on one level. That which is actual can be but a dream. I say we question the dreams, the fantasies, the stories, just as we would would reality, for one day when we are all dead and gone it is our stories that shall carry on in our stead.
I, Zander, as the creator, proprietor, and supreme overlord of the Epic Beyond have always dreamt of becoming a superhero. As superhuman powers on the scale I’ve imagined are largely impossible, I’ve decided to do the next best thing, create a universe where they are possible. By day I may be a mild mannered office worker, but by night I am an aspiring writer, and artist. I was raised with a great love of science fiction and fantasy. Late into my 20’s I find that my inner 10 year old is still running the place, so through the Epic Beyond I plan to put him to good use. This is only the first step in what will be a large multi faceted world domination scheme. I have plans, big plans, and soon all the interwebs will echo with that which is Epic and Beyond!
Big Plans: The Epic Projects?
Comic book guys ranting about the “Worst. Episode. Ever.” are a dime a dozen on the interwebs. My ego won’t let me blend into the crowd. I’m trying to get as much exposure for my creations as possible. Take a look at my stuff and let me know what your think.
Behind the glitz and glamor of the roaring twenties a nameless assassin stalks his next victim. He is ruthless, coldblooded, and utterly unstoppable, or so it seems. What happens when perfection slips? With the cops, the mob, and an iron-willed private investigator gunning for him can the killer, save himself? Is there any redemption for him, or is there only death in his future. This is my first foray into the world of self publishing. The Jazz Age is available for Amazon’s Kindle and Kindle Apps. Check it out here. Don’t forget to rate and review!
In the not too distant future, Dr. Albert Becker is a boy genius, with an I.Q. that’s off the charts. For all the scientific mysteries he’s unlocked, he’s never understood how to get along with people. When a global disaster strikes Earth, too great for his world’s superheroes to fix, Albert decides to put his extraordinary brain to good use. He builds a time machine and travels into the past to try and save the world. Joined by his robot assistant Thursday, Albert’s journey takes him beyond imagination to the distant past and to possible futures. I’m writing and drawing everything myself. I want to have weekly updates with my comic.
In a world where noir style gangsters, mad scientists who would make Victor Frankenstein cringe, masked villainous masterminds, and evil demigods run amok, three young brothers are endowed with extraordinary powers. Together they will become the worlds greatest superheroes, but it will be an epic journey getting there. This story started as bed time tales I’d tell my brothers. Over the years, I decided to do something with it and wrote everything down. Now I’m looking for a publisher. This is more of a long term project than anything else I’m working on. I’m probably going to go through the self publishing process, and split the coming of age saga into a series. Keep Checking out this website for updates on my progress and teaser images.
