The perpetrators: the winged warriors of Thanagar. So why has Thanagar's mightiest hero, Hawkman, come soaring to Adam Strange's rescue? Hawkman knows that his people have been framed for Rann's destruction. Only he and Strange can bring justice to the real mastermind: the interstellar tyrant called Despero.

Willumsen, Connor, author, illustrator.
[Toronto, Canada] : Koyama Press, 2017.
1 volume (unpaged) : chiefly illustrations ; 28 cm
Statement of responsibility from cover.
"Reality's grip is loosened as Spyda and Lynxa explore a potentially constructed environment that shifts between dystopic future and constructed virtual present. Like a form of multistable perceptual phenomena, Anti-Gone exists in ambiguity. Anti-Gone recalls videogames that attempt to replicate, or perhaps replace, reality. Often called virtual or synthetic worlds, massively multiplayer online worlds offer an escape into another identity, another life, where there isn't a goal or final boss like most videogames. Similarly, Anti-Gone is like Joyce with a joystick, the experience and the language of this otherworld is the meaning."
