Last week we delved a little into weird science with the fantastical world of Dresden Codak. This week I’m continuing in this vein with something a little darker, and a lot more twisted:
String Theory by Beck Grundy is, to put it simply, the genesis of a supervillain. The plot follows the steady decay of the life of physicist and misanthropic government employee, Herville Schtein, whose attempts to both successfully create a teleporter and embarrass a coworker literally explode in his face and send him down a dangerous spiral into a world of betrayal, violence, intrigue, and madness. Like a strange combination of Evil con Carne and Breaking Bad, String Theory is sure to tickle, thrill, and terrify.
