Montauk Babies (the Many Lives of Al Leedskalnin) If apple-pie, soda, cigarettes, and the quality of music on your radio are a lie, then time-travel and the 5th dimension are real. If you've ever questioned your government's intentions or what anyone insists "reality" is, prepare yourself for a wild ride that even Alice would not be prepared to survive. In the very near future, the world as we know is about to end, perhaps, not exactly as expected. It's the year 2011, and the earth is riddled with inter-dimensional holes, UFO's, and more technology and media control than anyone ever predicted. Only one man can stop it. a man by the name of Al Leedskalnin. Al, like the earth itself, is spiritually and physically falling apart. On one hand he is tortured with cut-up memories of his life as a guinea pig for secret government experiments that may or may not have happened well over fifty years ago in a secret underground base in Montauk, Long Island, NY. On the other he remembers times past that don't necessarily connect. World War II. the early days of the America frontier. alien abductions. Like a character from a pulp-fiction crime novel in a suit and fedora, Al faces the imminent destruction all things human head on, while clinging to his re-memories and longing for simpler days of the '40's and '50's. But he can't do it alone. Peabody Freeman, a quantum physicist with a penchant for all-nite diners and fast food, is a prisoner on the same journey and is the scientific brains behind the operation. Both an epic commentary on pop-culture and a look to the future with a wink, Montauk Babies delights and enlightens through O.H. Krill's prose and over thirty dazzling illustrations by acclaimed artist and comics creator John Malloy.
