In 2019, Alterna Comics brought us the science fiction epic ‘Feast or Famine.’ It features an alternate history written and created by Dave Swartz with artwork from Joseph Cooper.
Nicholas Teska is on the verge of something great. After having his invention stolen from Samuel Edison, who does after a botched experiment, Teska joins forces with industrialist Anthony Carnagy, who provides financing for his inventions. Teska partners with fellow inventor Albalien Stein to see what the future hold. Together, they build a teleporter that can transport you across the galaxy, but first contact does not go as planned for the intrepid scientists.
Dave Swartz clearly has no love-loss for Edison. Though this is meant to be an alternate history, you still get the vibe. Please note, this is an observation, not a criticism. Far from it. The story is interesting, fascinating, and harkens back to comic books that explored ideas like time travel, different dimensions, and space travel. Likewise, the artwork is superb and truly compliments the story. This is the kind of comics that I geeked out over and always have a lot of fun reading.
