Slipshot Vol 1.0

Slipshot is an original science fiction novel series written by Aibo and illustrated by Ryan Sunada-Wong and Gabriel Juarez. Vol 1.0 was published in 2023.

Synopsis[]

Something’s not quite right in San Francisco. Phantom-like machines called Vérkatrae crawl through the city streets, laser-wielding combatants duel in broad daylight, and people fall out of black holes in the sky. Even stranger, Frederick, a young college student living in San Francisco's Tenderloin district, seems to be the only person who can see these outlandish occurrences.

Meanwhile, Opal Fremmity, an extraterrestrial Mechanic Class Slave hailing from the Griddish Realm, has been tasked with carrying out Earth's apocalyptic final dismantlement project. Her home realm is bound to Earth by a powerful technology known as The Slipshot, and her journey to Earth is merely the beginning of a far-reaching project eons in the making. When Frederick meets Opal and learns of his planet’s dark fate, it quickly becomes clear that he may be the only person capable of severing Griddish’s connection to Earth and helping Mechanic Class Slaves like Opal stand up against their oppressors.
