"Beyond the Singularity" tells the final story of the fabled Gastonian civilization. Millenia ago a great race of technologically advanced beings visited an infant planet. They chose this planet as the site for the greatest genetic experiment ever conducted in the history of the multiverse. Experiment #57. Out of their experiment rose many forms of unique and wonderous sentient life. The existence of these "old gods" was only known through the myths and legends that arose from the collective consciousness of the sentient lifeforms they created, and eventually passed into obscurity. Then a genetic anomaly arose from the experiment. This anomaly would be known as Dingle Doppleganger and would threaten the very fabric of reality on Gastonia. Dingle threw the multiverse into a dark and terrible age. He destroyed everything, tore reality asunder and recreated Gastonia in his own image. This image included the spread of his reality to the rest of the multiverse and Dingle worked toward molding the few Gastonians left into a space faring race. Now the "old gods" have returned to their grand experiment to find something terrible...

|About the Artist
JOSHUA TAYLOR was born in New Jersey and continued his downward trajectory in hellish locales in up-state New York and North Carolina before honing his art skills at Pratt Institute. Upon earning his degree, he traversed the country, from California to Vermont, pursuing his art career. His fine art has appeared in galleries in LA, NY, Europe, and the Philippines, and has also been featured in various publications worldwide. Taylor's current body of work focuses on the history, myths and legends of his "Gastonian Multiverse", an odd ancient doppleganger reality where the laws of physics and the very fabric of time and space are falling apart at the seams. He currently resides in Baltimore where he paints, pays for parking, and works on a series of graphic novels and web comics entitled Bird & Girl.
