Welcome to the psychedelic space fantasy cosmos of the Hyperverse, a realm filled with immensely powerful beings who battle over worlds with strange geologies and hoard advanced technologies left by ancient starfarers. 

VORTEX follows the powerful sorcerer the Miizzzard as he travels to a mysterious planet and battles a strange, regenerating monster. The story gets more complex as the Miizzz finds himself sympathizing with the monster and her kin. Cardini’s art is entirely unique and absorbing.

“Goopy alien wizards melt, battle and stab their way from each others’ stomachs in cosmic landscapes forged from bold halftones and thick wacom lines. The contrast between low-res digital textures and organic shapes is a real eyeball melter.” 
-Jack Hayden, Comics Workbook

The VORTEX graphic novel was funded by Sparkplug Books Fall Books Project on Kickstarter. Come buy a copy and get a drawing by William Cardini!
