Overview
Nod Away is set on a near-future version of earth. A deep space transport has been developed to take a small crew to an earth-like, habitable planet in a nearby system in an attempt to begin colonization/repopulation. The internet is now telepathic and referred to as the "innernet." When the hub is revealed to be a human child, Melody McCabe is hired to develop the new nexus on the second International Space Station. Working within the structure of sci-fi, Nod Away moves back and forth between physical and psychological worlds, utilizing traditional and abstract storytelling styles to explore what consciousness could be, where it could possibly be located, and what function or point it might serve.

This indie SF tale, set in a plodding future dystopia where adults use children as conduits for connecting everyone in a strange form of group consciousness, fails to generate interest in either story or visuals. There are great concepts, but Cotter (Driven by Lemons) tries too hard to be mysterious about everything from a dimensional portal to a sinister, insipid television show. Dr. Melody McCabe, who's trying to find an alternative to the abuse of children, is a paper-thin character with a failing relationship and coworkers from the cliché shop (pedantic woman, loud horny bisexual woman, loud horny heterosexual man, aloof mad scientist). They all talk so much that most panels can barely squeeze in art. Save for a few abstracts and splash pages, there's a sameness in the panels that makes the word balloons even more dominant. This space-based story is inescapably bland. (Feb.)
