Book: Conquest of the Planet of the Geeks

Synopsis:

Liquin Sonos and his geeky friends return!  Two years after the events of Sex Drugs & Superheroes, Liquin has finished his magnum opus screenplay and journeys to the San Diego Comic-Con to meet with a high-powered agent to make his dream of becoming a screenwriter come true.  Joining him on the journey are his friends Kate, the film student, her boyfriend Windsor, the angst-ridden animator, the flamboyant agent Brigham and the vampy party girl Roxanne.  Little do his friends know, however, that Liquin has a deadly master plan to sell his work!  And little does he know that his long-time nemesis, Ragnar Wortham has come to Comic-Con with the intention of destroying Liquin.

Conquest of the Planet of the Geeks revisits the Comic-Con subculture with ferocious intensity, providing another stark look at a culture absorbed by corporate greed, the frustrations of life as a creative person, and an unflinching portrait of mental illness.  The second in author David Reddish’s Comic-Con Chronicles, Conquest of the Planet of the Geeks continues the praise and indictment of the Comic-Con subculture begun with Sex, Drugs & Superheroes, and plunges into the darkest corners of the creative mind, and the fight for artistic recognition.  This time, it’s war!
