It’s deadline day at the small town newspaper, The Wise Progress. Joe Hale the editor and owner struggles with deadlines, writer’s block and supernatural goings on while trying to keep a secret that will change his friends, family and his own life forever.

Choose, to continue in your family’s footsteps, or to sell out?  Joe Hale manages to do both, at different points of his life. In some ways he has a mid-life crises as he realizes the newspaper, that was handed down from his father is slowly going bankrupt. As he begins to debate the sale, he decides to go to a concert out of town. In a sort of cliche manner, he meets a younger girl that changes his life.

The comic embraces its independent roots and is done entirely in black and white. That choice honestly really works with story in a sort of brilliant way. The characters are drawn with a degree of realism, that manages to make some of the stranger things in story stand out greatly.
