Apsara Engine

Author(s): Bishakh Som

Indie Graphic Novels

"An astonishing collection of stories that expand and pulse into galaxy-sized moments of strangeness and wonder." --Kelly Link, author of Get in Trouble


The eight delightfully eerie stories in Apsara Engine are a subtle intervention into everyday reality. A woman drowns herself in a past affair, a tourist chases another guest into an unforeseen past, and a nonbinary academic researches postcolonial cartography. Imagining diverse futures and rewriting old mythologies, these comics delve into strange architectures, fetishism, and heartbreak.


Painted in rich, sepia-toned watercolors, Apsara Engine is trans illustrator Bishakh Som's highly anticipated debut work of fiction. Showcasing a series of fraught, darkly humorous, and seemingly alien worlds--which ring all too familiar--Som captures the weight of twenty-first-century life as we hurl ourselves forward into the unknown.
