Geek Life Podcast Reviews Hybrid Earth #1

This week we talk about the exciting new indie comic Hybrid Earth by Rustin Petrae and Frederick Allison Jr. In December of 2015 the nano-bomb was created, fusing nuclear and nano technology together. The first, and last bomb, was detonated into Earth’s atmosphere. When the irradiated nanomachines came back down, they merged humans with machines. Years later society is divided into two groups, the humans and the hybrids.

Review of Dragon by Blue Eye Books

Thank you to the author, Rustin Petrae, for gifting me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review! I don't think I've ever read a book quite like this one.  It's like a combination of everything I imagine in my head (science fiction stuff).  I don't really know how to structure this review so lets just jump right in! I really loved the setting and just generally the world.  It was really different but also was described in a way that I could picture everything and I always knew what was going on.  The nanos as well were a very nice addition. They blended well with the story and I've never seen that concept used before so that was cool.

Review of Dragon by Olive's Insights

Rustin Petrae creates a tangible world unlike any I have ever read about. Where you are either a "Rook" technologically advanced person. One who has grown up using tiny nano robots to recreate an extension of your ideas. If you are one of the few you can create anything you put your mind to. But most have vast blueprints at a fingers touch.
