by Prentis Rollins
A collection of four short stories (three of which originally appeared in Monkeysuit Volumes 1-3) by industry veteran Prentis Rollins (New X-Men, DC One Million, JLA: Incarnations, Power Company). In "Dying Inside," a misanthropic tycoon discovers he is dying of cancer and decides to have his cryogenically frozen body inside a robot. In "What Wouldst Thou Do, Old Man?," a holocaust survivor has to decide how best to protect his young grandson when the two of them encounter neo-nazis in Central Park. In "The Whirligig," a physicist slowly goes mad while obsessing over the problem of where lost socks, coins and keys disappear. And in "I, God," the lone survivor of an apocalyptic plague wanders through the frozen remains of New York City as an immortal.
