Short Summary

Character-driven refreshing take on the concept of time-travel. Avoiding the "how" and focusing on the "why" the main character is haunted by his past. Developing new relationships and skills, delving into LGBT relationships, Swann is recruited into a military program but soon questions everything.

Confrontation between all involved characters with a strong focus on redemption whereby the haunted past of Swann is fixed. The story arc is complete and was written as a standalone title however the mythology and process of Blackout could be continued however it is not left as a cliffhanger.
