SO MY GRANDMA AND UNCLE GOT ME SOMETHING SUPER COOL TODAY.
THE FIRST TWO ISSUES (of five) OF THE NEW FIGMENT COMIC KSJFHSKF.
If y’all don’t know who Figment is, READ UP.
He’s been one of my favorite Disney characters since I was really little, but I didn’t get to go on the ride that he belongs to at Disney until after the ‘99 refurbish. I’ve owned a stuffed animal of him ever since I was born, since my parents got it for their first child while on their honeymoon.
I already read these two volumes and I’m already loving what they’re doing with the story— even if it, so far, differs greatly from teh ride’s history.
The plot so far:
Blarion Mercurial is a brilliant scientist who is tasked to help the rest of his guild create new and alternate sources of energy for humanity. His idea is to build a machine that would harness energy from the working mind— literally “brain power”. The Chairman tells him that his invention is a waste of time and that he needs to come up with a more realistic solution or his funding will be cut off— meaning Blair will no longer be able to support his family.
After numerous attempts at an alternate invention, Blair decides to go ahead and give his machine a test run— successfully delving into his past memories and then into his latent imagination, where he finds Figment, a childhood creation, and brings him into reality.
After this attempt, he revises the machine and tries once more, but the Chairman discovers his experiment and attempts to shut it down, accidentally throwing Figment and Blair into the energy field the machine has created, transporting them into a fantastic new realm.
Meanwhile, the Chairman attempts to bring the energy field under control— unwittingly bringing forth a being named Singular, a captain for the being known as the Clockwork Control, into the human realm.
Unbeknownst to the dangers his home world faces, Blair and Figment decide to explore the world they crash-landed in and meet new beings along the way…
The next volume comes out in August so I am SUPER STOKED.
I will need to find a local comic shops that sells them… HMMM.
Also… LOOK HOW SUPER PRECIOUS FIGMENT IS DRAWN I CAN’T HANDLE IT.
