The Comic


Ralph Johnston is possibly the most boring man on earth. He works out of an office 9-5 and organizes his sock drawer in his free time. His secret: his imagination is so powerful it manifests itself in reality.

His finger guns actually work.
He can bounce bullets away from him.

The limits of his powers? No one is quite sure, since he's never bothered to use them before. However, as the gangs in the city of New Umbra begin to act up, and with his secretary's constant urging, Ralph's powers begin to be put to the test.
