What would you do if you found yourself inside a comic book?
Well Jack knows…
Even Jack will admit he isn’t having a great month. After finally getting his dream job as lead writer on the Captain Avenger comic his inspiration runs dry. With a submission deadline looming, his editor on his back and no sleep for days he tries to hash out a story with little success. Then things really start to turn strange; Jack’s characters start popping up in his life and he finds himself caught up in action straight out of the pages of a superhero comic book.
The question is as Jack’s realities collide and the line between fiction and real life starts to blur is Jack on the verge of a nervous breakdown? Or are these events more real than he realizes…
Exposition is a unique mash-up of comic book and prose featuring Superheros, evil Villains, dim Henchmen, noisy Ninjas, giant Robots, flying Monkeys with laser-beams for eyes and a very diabolic dance number as a Jack begins to lose the plot as he desperately seeks the ending to the story.
Exposition is a 46 page mash-up of comic book & prose story telling, and will be the most unusual not about superheroes at all comic you will ever read. [Kindle eBook – $3.50] [Paperback – $4.99] [Hardback – $11.99]

The shells exploded overhead splintering the trees raining burning branches on a very startled Lieutenant James as he hurriedly dropped down into his leather command seat, slamming the Tanks turret hatch closed above him. On the way down he yelped in pain as the hard metal of the cupola slammed into his elbow; not even the thick padding of his leather tanker jacket stopped his bone from aching.
