Guy is a Catalyst, an artificial being travelling from universe to universe, genre to genre, instigating the stories. Whether you need a clue to your mystery, a warning from a mysterious stranger or a hint of hope, he’s there. Whatever gets you into the next scene.
But why does this helpful robot always end up beaten senseless? Did you need to stab him as you accepted the ancient scroll?
As the realities roll by, Guy’s patience starts to wear thin. But can he ever be anything else?
Also featuring: Wanted: Brave Warriors, a short bonus story looking at day-to-day life in a fantasy world Guy passes through, where courage might be the worst possible trait for completing a quest.
The Catalyst is a new one-shot comic from Comichaus, crossing the gleeful stylistic play of Black Hammer or Eternity Girl with the robot-introspection of Westworld. It came from the media-drenched mind of writer Nick Bryan and is brought to life with vivid, genre-spanning work by artist Robert Ahmad, colourist David Cooper and letterer Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou.
You can get the comic at MCM this weekend and available to preorder on Comichaus here:
