YAHTZEE CROSHAW RETURNS TO THE DEPARTMENT OF EXTRADIMENSIONAL AFFAIRS
‘Existentially Challenged’, the sequel to ‘Differently Morphous’ comes to Dark Horse!
MILWAUKIE, Ore., (May 27, 2022)— From Yahtzee Croshaw (Differently Morphous, Mogworld, Will Save the Galaxy for Food, Jam), the creator of the Zero Punctuation gaming review series, comes Existentially Challenged! Originally available as an audiobook, Dark Horse Books proudly presents Existentially Challenged in print for the first time, featuring a new cover by Ethan Kimberling.
With magic declassified in the UK, fake psychics and fraudulent healers are running amok, so it’s up to the Department of Extradimensional Affairs’ newly appointed Skepticism Officers to crack down on them. But when they set their sights on Modern Miracle, a highly suspicious and fast-growing faith healing cult with remarkably good social media presence, even their skepticism is put to the test.
Is Modern Miracle on the level? Is Miracle Meg’s healing magic real? Why do dead bodies keep showing up on their doorstep? And just what is Miracle Dad’s preferred flavor of crisp?
Of Existentially Challenged, Croshaw said, “I always like to start a story from a question, and in the case of Existentially Challenged, it was, ‘How would people feel about the church in a world where magic has suddenly turned out to be real?’ From there, things took a few turns. I hope you like it, as I have big plans for the ongoing DEDA series. Differently Morphous was the boulder placed on top of a snowy hill, and now we’re kicking it down the slope.”
The Existentially Challenged paperback will be available at comic stores Jaunary 18, 2023 and in bookstores January 17, 2023. It is available for pre-order on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and at your local comic shop and bookstore. Existentially Challenged will retail for $12.99.
