Latest News & Interact with THE GOD MACHINE
Stricken with grief from the death of his girlfriend, Sith, Guy Salvatore struggles day-to-day to make sense of his world. He’s plagued with hallucinations of monsters that torment him with outrageous requests and threaten his life wherever he goes. He’s unsure if these manifestations are real or are being invented by his own sickened mind.
A man calling himself Satan holds the answers to Guy’s woes. Satan’s twisted tongue removes the tragedy of Sith’s death, and restores hope with the promise of her being alive. But there’s a catch… It seems that the two Gods that govern all of existence let her be stolen from her world by an unknown force. Now she is floating aimlessly in and out of dimensional planes known as the “Dream Worlds.” Satan implores Guy to take action and call upon his latent power to break through his world’s plane, search out Sith, and take vengeance upon the vile Gods that caused this atrocity.
What’s a “Guy” to do? Especially when you think you’re going out of your skull, and a suspiciously cliché and creepy man in a graveyard tells you that your dead girlfriend is alive.
Join Guy as he battles his perceptions of reality and starts to discover things that go beyond his world and into another.
An ongoing psychological drama-comedy about life, love, the politics of Gods, and everything you wanted to know about existence, but were afraid to ask!
What fellow comic creators are saying about The God Machine!
“Utterly gorgeous work. Unlike some, Chandra’s painterly art blends with the story instead of overpowering it, which is often harder than it looks. & any story involving Satan & other fables always brings a smirk. Great dark & quirky stuff!”
“Sometime in the late 1990’s a dream began to seep into our collective reality. Enigmatic, beautiful, darkly alluring, so striking and persistent was this dream that it transcended the realm of mind to take the form of one Chandra Free. Through Chandra’s gift for art and story, this persistent dream is now being written into our conscious minds, and frankly, we’re all the better for it.”
“Like a twisted Alice in Wonderland, Chandra Free’s THE GOD MACHINE will take you on a surreal trip down the rabbit hole, leaving you wondering what is real and what is fantasy.”
“I love it in comics when someone creates something so personal it could not have come from anyone else. It doesn’t take more than a quick glance to see that THE GOD MACHINE is a highly unique book. Every page is just bursting with personality in both writing and art. I’m going to go out on a limb and say that Chandra Free has created the most Chandra-esque book of 2009!”
