When you stroll around the dealer's room at San Diego Comic-Con you get to see lots of friendly faces trying to sell you their independently created comic books.
The artists are generally quite nice but their comics rarely thrill me, because they just sound like the same old superheroic premise presented with lackluster art.
But this year Kevin Bieber and Victor De Troy introduced me to their fun and funky new comic drawn by Jared Lamp called Man Vs. Rock.
The premise is brilliantly ridiculous- rocks have been treated like crap by humans for thousands of years- we've peed on them, spit on them, crucified them and used them as slaves while building the pyramids.
So naturally rocks are fed up with the way humanity treats them so they decided to revolt, bringing about the Rock-pocalypse, and the only man who can defeat them is crazed geologist Buck Stone.
The series is satirical, abstract and totally over-the-top in terms of humor, with jokes galore on each and every page, and yet the premise is compelling enough to make you want to read on.
I mean, who wouldn't want to find out how to stop the Rock-pocalypse from happening, right?
