Alice and the Engine

™ and © Straw Dog

Alice is an attractive redhead whose best friend is her gun, the Engine. And she needs it, because fighting gruesome monsters is a daily occurrence for Alice. Or is it? An old doctor tells Alice that she is in fact a figment of a child’s imagination, and that she, and the monsters she fights, are just part of the young girl’s war against madness. What can she believe? Her first step is to become one with the Engine—maybe that marriage will help give her some answers.

This offbeat action-adventure yarn features ultra-violence in a futuristic—perhaps imaginary—setting. Published in black-and-white.
