“Inside every world is another world, and inside of that is darkness and light.”
There exists a subconscious realm where emotions and thought can be found in their most vulnerable and raw state. It’s through this realm of not-quite-here and not-quite-there that accomplished animator and storyteller, Cole Alexander Higgins, will guide you in his new book The Way Volume 1: Age of Darkness.
This unique story is set in a distant, primitive world. A dark, malevolent force has spread across the land, turning brothers into enemies and men into monsters. Each image represents a window into the daily lives of this time and these people. These visions reveal how the people of a once great world fell into darkness, and what might be required for them to climb their way back to the light.
The Way Volume 1: Age of Darkness insightful story and striking imagery act as gateways to the subconscious—the area where our truest selves reside. Explore the depths of your own subconscious and the struggle between darkness and light. And perhaps discover your own path along the way.
Immerse yourself in The Way Volume 1: Age of Darkness and get ready to discover the worlds found within worlds…
I was given a copy of The Way: Age of Darkness from Archangel Ink in exchange for an honest review. I was intrigued by the book the minute I picked it up, the cover and illustrations looked interesting. I will admit that I doubt I’m the best person to review this book simply because I’m not all that deep. There’s a lot implied and each person’s own self will greatly influence each individual reading. That sounds so hippie, but it’s true. Each page is literally one word and illustration. There was enough there to keep me interested in trying to form a story in my head.
As I said before, I’m not the most philosophically deep person, so I doubt I got what I was meant to. However, I enjoyed reading it for what it was and I would probably pick up Volume 2 when it’s released. Overall, a fascinating read.
