"A comment on our duplicitous popular culture, perhaps, with demigod celebrities constantly in and out of rehab, perpetuating the illusion of living the dream while hiding the nightmare? Whatever, it is an engaging and humorous take on modern life in the big city."
DOSE! is a unique reinterpretation of the super hero genre which explores what would happen
to society if the technology and superhero population introduced in the Silver Age of Comics
grew exponentially through today. Super Powers are mundane, kaiju walk the streets, and
cybernetic enhancement surgery is just a phone call away—if you have the cubits to pay for it,
that is. Within this environment, we meet the Screw Worm, an unemployed, ex-teenage
metahero sidekick with a growing dependency on drugs and too much time on his hands.
Through a series of calamitous events, the Screw Worm unwittingly stumbles onto a conspiracy
that threatens to hasten the destruction of a world already teetering on the edge of collapse.
