There's No Time Like The Present Updates

Item: There's No Time Like The Present has made Bleedin' Cool's 11 Best Graphic Novels of 2015.  My graphic novel is featured alongside Sandman Overture by Neil Gaiman and JH Williams III and Ruins  by Peter Kuper. 
This is the graphic novel that, more than any other, has haunted me this year. Showing the present day and the past mixing and matching after the invention of time travel and a time-fluid “ultranet” hasn’t so much changed the world as been changed by the world, as it explores the inertial dampers of humanity and its innate luddite nature in the face of the the biggest of changes until inevitability flips reality completely. A slice-of-life kitchen sink drama, drawn in a mundane, matter of fact, easy to consume fashon, where like everyone else in the book, you can just flick to the end to find out what happens but very few people do. Technology doesn’t bring happiness in There’s No Time Like The Present. At least not initially. It just is. And what changes it actually brings sneaks up on you in a very unexpected manner.
