'Volcano Trash' Features High Adventure & Transforming Robots
Plus Man is back, and he's in trouble as usual! The young masked hero was previously the star of Ben Sears' Night Air, as well as lots of other appearances in zines and webcomics here and there along the way. And now we're pleased to bring you this preview from Sears' new Double+ Adventure, Volcano Trash. These stories take place in a futuristic world that's a bit reminiscent of anime, but Ben Sears draws in more of a Hergé-inspired European style. In short, Sears is an American comics creator with decidedly global influences, and that makes his work a lot of fun to read.

Because Pressure/Sensitivity: An Awesome Comics Anthology is edited by former ComicsAlliance editor Caleb Goellner (currently Wacom's Social Marketing Specialist), it comes as no surprise that the book is populated by contributors well known to CA readers for their distinctive styles and technical prowess: Ben Sears, Giannis Milonogiannis, Ming Doyle, Meredith Gran & Mike Holmes, and Ulises Farinas & Ryan Hill.
