Andy Wicks is a forty-something father of two who's tried everything to quit smoking -- from going cold turkey, to the latest patches and nicotine chewing gums -- so he figures he'll give this hypnosis thing a try. What's the worst that could happen? Unfortunately, Andy gets dealt a fate worse than death -- high school! Transported back to 1985, Andy returns to his formative years as a gangly, awkward teenager. Is he doomed to relive the mistakes of his past, or has he been given a second chance to get things right? One thing's for sure: this time he's going to ask out that girl from math class...
I was just saying to Chris at Top Shelf how I’d been throwing around those kind of ideas for the past decade or more, from the Belle Lettres stories, through the ‘Talking To The Trees’ piece right up to last year’s summer sketches. I am envious therefore of Alex’s ability to bring his concept to fruition in a finished artifact, whilst all my ideas just continue to float around unconnected in the air. And excited to see what he’s made of it, of course.
