Prowl Car

PROWL CAR by Chris Reynolds. Another world to investigate!

Federico: You've moved on to doing photo-comics in a big way.

Chris: Yes, I've been interested in films since the days of Super 8. I tried various experiments with Super 8 and I'm finding the same interest in doing photo-comics. The images can have the same kind of blurred, crushed-black, old-world feel as old movies, and – due to the nature of these stories which are about dreams and buildings and environments – I have not found it necessary to always put characters in the pictures. The characters and their interactions live in the captions, in the manner of a traditional text-only story or novel.

Federico: That sounds an interesting development.

Chris: It is, particularly for me and the kind of storytelling that I'm interested in. Also, the photographic images create a kind of relentless verisimilitude which means I can go quite a long way into abstraction with the words while the images provide an anchor to the real world.

 A whole Government Department goes missing. What has become of the new I.R.C. anti-crime unit?

Electronic Arts of the Prowl Car!
 Dreams of islands, dreams of clouds, dreams of pigs and kidneys, dreams of birds, dreams of closure, dreams of bat-light, dreams of loss, dreams of enchantment, dreams of vans, dreams of eyes, dreams of ships and canals, dreams of high places, and dreams of Massive Savings on Loose Food!
From Chris Reynolds, visionary author of The New World, Torus, and the Cinema Detectives, comes a brand new take on terror. Chris likes to fuss around with his comics and put new ideas in, and a lot of the time this doesn't pay off - but he's an older guy now and has been plugging away at these stories for years and so it would be a big shame if after all that bouncing-off-the-walls he didn't sooner or later come up with a story that worked. A Pocket Chiller sees new nightmares and strange visions from a world next to yours. Who can say what waits in the dark for you?

Prowl Car: Academy
Strangely-empty streets are filled with life at the Prowl Car Academy. Our course at Prowl Car Academy begins with a departure for “Scalene.” “Get Out of the Cab” loses interest in taxis ... then what's this we see “Through Trees?” It can just about be described as a “Hill.” Our fifth story is “The Third,” then we are taught how to read between the “Lines.” There is a mystery of “Two” before “Wings” make us free. They lose patience with us in “Next.” Why their training methods are now “Wrong.” A shadow on the face of the world in “The Framework of Cups.” leads to a “Short Cut” in learning. We have an idea that might or might not be great in “The Landscape of Air” before a filming day in “Newcastle.” “Wakey,” Don't fall asleep in class! Looking for “Moon Queen and The Bee.” Adventures in artwork in “Actaeon.” We see charitable impulses at work in “Bikes.” Then it's some kind of political thriller, right there in the daytime, in “Rougier.” We see the “Best” life, and finally we come upon the “Secret!” Mature work from cartoonist Chris Reynolds.
Prowl Car: Power and Control
Prowl Car: Power And Control. All-new stories all about dreams and the future! In “The Power of Dreams” we feel the sense of a shape. Explore a real prophecy in “Get Ready For Lindy-Lee.” “No Shocks” has a way to avoid sudden grief. Find forgiveness in “Giant Waterfalls.” There's no chance you will, but “Don't Call Me Yesterday.” We consider our position in ”More Stories.” In “The Golden Age” we remember an old tale. “Not Taken” meets the limits of agreement. “Fumph” feels the air in the summer. We revisit the renowned geometricist in “Doctor Scalene.” In “Time To Forget” we remember something. “Among Cemetery fields” we find … love? In “Universal Expansion” we shrink. On the “Prowl Bus” we waste too much time on a memory. In “Snowmen” we catch up with the aliens. “Sirens” takes us deep into the country. In “Stones of the Supermen” we explore the trees. Say hello to “A Little Bit of Goodbye.” We sense the atmosphere of “Heavy Traffic.” The “Sea Drain” exposes our wealth. We wig-out in “Hands.” “The Covered Way” takes us to London. Who really controls the world in “Apart”? Their final case in “Cinema Detectives.” Things are nested in “Lies.” Find out how you fit in ... in “The Different Conformities.” Leave the house now in “The Stew.” It's lunch in the rain in “Human.” Discover Doctor Scalene's new invention in “Spinner.” Scalene continues in “Bricks Without Straw.” Find out what is “Stronger Than Magic.” Experience “Liquid Light.” Take a little trip to the “Top of the Town.” And finally, meet “The Control Men.”
