The PopCult Bookshelf
It’s full disclosure time here in PopCult. I have been friends with Danny Boyd for thirty years (man it feels weird to write that). I’ve always covered his activities here in this blog, and I’m not done yet. I even wrote about his wrestling endeavors back when this blog was merely a month old. Aside from being a teacher and guide, my friend is a creative guru who’s tried his hand at making movies, wrestling, bull-riding, journalism and creating graphic novels.
Danny is a treasured resource in this state. As such, it’s surprising that he hasn’t been blown-up, leveled and sucked dry by coal barons.
Which brings us to his next big project. “Carbon” is a graphic novel that Danny has been working on for many years. It tells the story of an evil coal operator (who may bear a bit of a purely coincidental resemblance to a certain universally-despised former coal official who likes to make documentaries about himself that say he didn’t kill all those miners on purpose). This coal operator has tapped into a sacred carbon, actually the banished and cursed remnants of an ancient fallen civilization, and his actions are likely to doom the world.
After what happened with our water last January, you may need to keep reminding yourself that this is not a documentary.
