HARDCOVER COLLECTED EDITION OF GRAYSON, PHILLIPS & BOLTON’S GROUNDBREAKING USER HITS STORES THIS MAY
“I would have thought that in this age of stunning MMORPGs no one would bother with text-based role-playing anymore, but that just isn’t the case. There’s a primal magic in collaborative storytelling that none of the customizable avatars, talented voice actors or gorgeously rendered worlds have managed to replace. Evey time gamers see an “about you” prompt they’re off and running; there are RP communities in every fandom and on every social media platform in existence,” said Grayson. “The chatrooms where the action in USER takes place are no longer active, but the adventures described in the story continue to unfold every day in every corner of the internet.”
USER HC (ISBN: 978-1-5343-0159-7, Diamond Code MAR170839) hits comic book stores on Wednesday, May 17th and bookstores on Tuesday, May 23rd. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, April 17th.
