reMIND is an all ages sci-fi about faith, underwater lizard-men and brain transplantation. Creator Jason Brubaker seamlessly delivers a perfectly-paced story, strong characters, and a visual style that can actually be described as “unique.” Winner of the Xeric Award for a graphic novel, reMIND is a labor of love and independent publishing success story. Jason was inspired by comic artists in the 90’s when Jason refined his drawing style and then was influenced by Miyazaki’s movies and storytelling over the last decade.
