"An unexpectedly poignant and cleverly observed graphic novel treatment of Serling's life and career..." says Joe Dante, Director of Gremlins and Twilight Zone: The Movie. We remember Rod Serling as our sharply dressed, cigarette-smoking tour guide of The Twilight Zone, but the entertainment business once regarded him as the "Angry Young Man" of Television. Before he became the revered master of science fiction, Rod Serling was a writer who had to fight to make his voice heard. His success came as he began to write about real world enemies in the guise of aliens and monsters. 

He vehemently challenged the networks and viewership alike to expand their minds and standards―rejecting notions of censorship, racism and war.

In doing so, he pushed the television industry to the edge of glory, and himself to the edge of sanity. Rod operated in a dimension beyond that of contemporary society, making him both a revolutionary and an outsider.

"Expertly takes us into a dimension of incredible imagination...A great American story of determination and invention." -David Kushner, author of Masters of Doom

"Inspired...respectful but clear-eyed tribute to one of the most important and influential dramatists of the 20th Century." -Alan Brennert, Nebula and Emmy Award Winner
