Format: Hardcover
My favorite feature of my favorite magazine (Reason) is Peter Bagge's features. Much more than a political cartoonist, his comic-book style political and social commentaries are worth the price of a subscription. An issue of Reason without something from Bagge, no matter what else it might offer, is a disappointment.

But his work in Reason is only a small part of his oeuvre. His latest comic books have been collected in Reset, a series of 4 comic books now in one volume. He takes a bit of a sci-fi turn, giving his slacker main character (His characters are typically slackers.) the opportunity to participate in a neurological experiment. Hooked up to this new machine, this out-of-work actor is taken back to he high school days, and can make different choices at key turning points of his life, thus given a chance to reset.

Of course, nothing is as it seems. And life is much more complicated than we think. Reset is full of off-beat humor, somewhat thoughtful reflections on life, and Bagge's characteristic black-and-white art. Bagge fans will want to pick this up. Reason readers looking for some of his great political and cultural insight will be disappointed. I liked it, but if you're not a fan of alternative comics, don't bother.

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for the complimentary electronic review copy.

Format: Hardcover
Former celeb Guy Krause is taking a court-ordered DUI class when Angela Minor recruits him for a project that lets people relive their lives virtually. Krause is kinda the test pilot. His "life" starts at his high school graduation (an unhappy moment). If he wants to stop, he must hit a reset button which brings him back to that same unhappy moment. Of course, Guy has a huge problem getting past that first minute until he rewrites the rules.

Meanwhile, the purpose of the virtual reality exercise isn't what Guy expected it to be. Still, Guy has the chance to relive his life as others saw it. Is that a good thing? No spoilers here: you'll have to read Reset to find out.

The art and story are both goofy, in a good way. The characters have some depth and it's easy to connect with them. In addition to being offbeat and funny, the story is also surprisingly smart and insightful. That's a rare combination. I would give Reset 4 1/2 stars if I could.

Format: Hardcover
Guy Krause is a washed up movie star with no money who is chosen to take part in a strange scientific experiment: what if he could go back in his life to an earlier time and relive it knowing what he knows now? Faced with his past or a future that involves reality TV, Guy opts for the experiment, plugging into a machine and being sent back in virtual reality. But what is the purpose of this machine, who built it, and why was Guy picked?

I generally like Peter Bagge's stuff and "Reset" was no different but the story felt a bit half-baked. On the one hand Bagge does a fine job of creating mystery in the story such as who is funding such a weird experiment and what is it really for, along with the shady characters who appear periodically. On the other hand, he drops the ball answering those conceits, providing dull, if not easy, answers that feel like Bagge just didn't care or have the imagination to come up with something more creative.

It might be that Bagge is so used to making fun of dramatic storylines in a comedic way and writing stories about everyday people, that he's unable to fully commit to writing his own dramatic storyline. The best parts of the book were when Guy was dealing with his crappy life, familiar writing territory for Bagge, rather than getting involved in a convoluted plot about pseudo-time-travel machines and conspiracies which read unconvincingly.

"Reset" is a decent read which had me turning the pages to the end, and I cared about Guy, but I felt certain plot elements were handled clumsily and the very weak final act does the book no favours. Bagge's known for his humour but unfortunately there's little evidence of it in the book. The ending is weak and too easy, even stereotypical, and what could've been a thoughtful book ends up becoming disappointingly shallow.
