FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

“Cosmic Times turns a darker page with Decisions: The Faces of the Stranger,
a hard hitting slice of life story with a touch of the supernatural.” 


The core creative team at Cosmic Times are coming together to bring an important tale to market!  (Cosmic Times Publisher) Martin T Pierro and (Cosmic Times Creative Director) Zach Bassett have combined their writing styles to bring to life this all too real story.  Decisions: The Faces of the Stranger follows Jack,  a young man standing at a crossroad. He is wrestling with his place in the world trying to come to terms with his own sexuality and future. The questions he has are tied to his past. This is a past that he has tried hard to forget but has never moved beyond but now the time has come for him to face the truth of what actually happened.

In Decisions: The Faces of the Stranger, the main character is forced to face the reality of his situation by two etherial “Guides”, Jack will have to make the ultimate decision to move forward or to stay locked in a trap of his own making. It’s the writers hope that this special one shot can shed light on a very serious life issue.  The comic medium lends itself to storytelling in a very  different way.  It presents those sometimes difficult issues through a lens that can provide a unique perspective.  

Decisions: The Faces of the Stranger  is illustrated by Jeramy Hobbs (What I.F. from Cosmic Times). Hobbs’ detailed art brings life to each character and provides a realistic, sometimes gritty depiction of what they are going through. The cover art is by industry favorite Jeff Dekal.  Jeff is best known for his recent work with Marvel on such titles as Iron Fist, Hulk, Kingpin and The Uncanny Inhumans.

“A good story makes you think.  A great story changes your life.”
