The story: In a world similar to our own, two women, Frida and Cohl, best friends forever, depart for a journey of adventure from WInnipeg to France. There, they get caught in a psychological torrent as they integrate into a group of displaced ‘adult-children’ and move into an abandoned pool in France. In their creative escape from a fantasy of an impending war around them, they find a syncretic object, an anthropomorphic 'infinite' whistle, an ancient art object, that drives them into death worlds.

The story: Rock That Never Sleeps is part folk tale and part science fiction. This futuristic comic book is set in a California desert ghost town. The town, Rock That Never Sleeps, is a sprawling junkyard "where objects are thrown away and where memories live on forever." In this world, all have lost their memory. The only way to recover the past is through an object.
