reMIND is a mystical, sci-fi about faith, love and brain transplantation.
Sonja, the lighthouse keeper at a seaside oil drilling town, loses her cat, Victuals. Everyone blames the Lizard Man, the local boogeyman, which Sonja knows is a myth created by her late father to generate interest in the town. But when Victuals unexpectedly returns and has the brain of a strange intelligent creature; it seems someone is doing experimental transplants. With the brain of a lizard and the body of a cat, Victuals must now fight to recover his original lizard body and confront what he thought was the all-powerful god.
Jason Brubaker works at Dreamworks Animation in Visual Development, recently on Kung Fu Panda 2. He’s worked professionally as an artist and animator on commercials and films since 1996. As a storyboard artist he has worked on the first two Blade films, Van Helsing, Ghost Rider and Deuce Bigelow: Male Gigolo.
“Brubaker’s work belies a curiously mature and seasoned sensibility. It’s like he’s been telling graphic stories for years. Coming from animation, and to graphic novels so late isn’t a handicap, it’s an obvious advantage. His fluid compositions, generous use of blacks, compact economical pen line, and astoundingly gorgeous color sense are yummy stuff indeed. Creations like Sonja & Victuals seem to have always been with us. Discover why Jason Brubaker’s unique characters will show he’s definitely arrived in the field of comics.” –Sam Kieth – Creator of “The Maxx”
“…Charming to the end, reMIND is a culmination of Jason s life to this point, and reading it is like looking straight into his heart.” –Jeremy Barlow, writer Metalocalypse, Star Wars Rebellion
