A Saga of Sloth and Quirky Superhero Fantasy!
Allan Clark is a mild-mannered accountant who just wants a girlfriend, a raise, and his privacy. But life becomes far more complicated after a strange comet passes much closer to the Earth than originally predicted. The resulting atmospheric contamination causes a small percentage of the planet, including Allan, to develop astonishing superpowers.
Suddenly forced to live with abilities he doesn’t want and can’t control, Allan finds himself resenting a society that expects him to do everything for them, while at the same time treating him like a freak. Allan tries to retreat from the limelight, but that doesn’t stop a fearsome new supervillain from appointing himself Allan’s arch-nemesis… regardless of whether Allan wants to play.Inaction Figure
is a monthly superhero serial/prose comic book from Joe Barlow, the director of the cult film The Wicked Witch Project
, and the former host of the Cinemaslave
podcast. An affectionate spoof of superhero conventions, with tons of colorful (ahem) characters, Inaction Figure
proves what the world has long suspected: great power doesn’t necessarily translate into great responsibility.
