Description


"Incredibly fascinating." -- BOOKLIST Starred Review

Not all dreams come true While history is written by the winners, the full story of humanity is built on the moments when things went completely sideways; the spectacular screw-ups, monumental mistakes, and explosive errors that paved the way for the bright and shiny achievements we normally celebrate. Today, the losers get their due as we honor the speed bumps we had to hit on the road to progress

In this entertaining tour of ill-fated futures, some of comics' brightest talents relate the historical failure they're most passionate about, bringing each moment to life in a hopeful and inspiring short story anthology. Some of these dreams were too big for their time, some were unfairly stopped by forces beyond their control, and some were best left on the cutting room floor, but all are windows to a world of possibility that's still -- for now -- just beyond the horizon.

Features work by RYAN NORTH, HARRY "HBOMBERGUY" BREWIS, EVAN DAHM, BLUE DELLIQUANTI, RYAN ESTRADA, and many more
