Top Shelf Announces Jess Fink’s ‘We Can Fix It: A Time Travel Memoir’
Time travel is an tricky adventurescape to navigate. Despite a hero or heroine’s best intentions, they tend to leave a trail of bodies/fractured timelines/nearly-kissed mothers in their wake across fiction. Cartoonist Jess Fink, on the other hand, seems poised to avoid the pitfalls of her chronally displaced contemporaries in Top Shelf’s upcoming graphic novel, We Can Fix IT!: A Time Travel Memoir, wherein she enacts revenge on childhood bullies and makes out with… herself?From Top Shelf:
What would you do if you had a time machine? Bet on sporting events? Assassinate all the evildoers of history? Or maybe try to fix all the mistakes and regrets that have haunted you all these years?
Join Jess as she travels back in time to share her wisdom with her naive younger self, stand up to bullies who terrorized her child self, and teach her horny teenage self a thing or two. What begins as a raunchy adventure in teen wish fulfillment grows into a thoughtful story about memory, regret, and growing up.
One time machine, one frustrated girl, one sexy futuristic jumpsuit…infinite possibilities.
We Can Fix It is Fink’s second Top Shelf release, following the printed version her pornographic Chester 5000 webcomic. Her new book is decidedly safer for work, but judging from preview pages, no less amorous.
