In nod to the past, Marquez, Ryan produce 3-D tale

By

The protagonist of David Marquez's and R.J. Ryan's new graphic novel revolutionized the way society lives once.

In "The Joyners in 3-D," the duo tells the story of George Joyner and how his pride, conceit and hubris lead to the loss of everything he's achieved as completes his second technological breakthrough.

The pair's latest collaboration was a three-year project told in anaglyph 3-D. Marquez and Ryan's 128-page hardcover, released Wednesday by Archaia, melds a utopian future with a dysfunctional family and a dose of corporate espionage.

And it's presented in a format that is not just 3-D effects, says Ryan, but "three-dimensional characterization, in the writing and art."
