For the Kindle edition, the book was reformatted so that each page contains a single comic frame. This keeps the print legible on even very small screens, like on the iphone. So, even though the book is a comic, it is fit for all devices.
Have you ever contemplated the cause of the universe beyond simply attributing it to God or The Big Bang? If so, have you ever entertained the idea that the universe is but a dream? Which is to say, have you ever considered that the cause of the universe is that you dreamt it up? At first glance, the idea that you dreamt up the universe perhaps seems implausible. However, what if you really took that idea seriously and followed it to its logical conclusion? What would you discover? Well, this book answers that question. Using the unique form of a graphic novel, artist and writer Alexander Marchand takes you on an artistic, humorous, irreverent, and extremely informative romp through the advanced, nondualistic metaphysics of the contemporary spiritual document known as A Course in Miracles. In the end, you’ll not only have a coherent picture of the true nature of the universe and existence, but you’ll also have essential, practical knowledge of what you’ll need to do to if you are ready to wake up. However, be forewarned that if you expect this book to prove to you that the universe is a dream, you’ll be disappointed. The only way to prove a dream is a dream is to wake up. Therefore, although the book provides the hypothesis and the parameters of the experiment to prove that the universe is a dream, you’ll have to be willing to do the experiment yourself. Consequently, if you refuse to do the experiment, you’ll probably hate the book and all irony of your hate for the book will be lost to you. But if you embrace the book’s logically consistent message of peace and are thus willing to do the experiment--which you’ll find is an experiment of uncompromising forgiveness--you’ll love it.

Thank you, thank you, thank you, Alex, for writing/drawing/designing this book! I never realized that I could learn SO much from a comic book! You really DO reveal the secrets of existence and in a most humorous, educational and clear way.
I'm not the kind of person who wants to review a book by describing the contents in my personal feeble way... nor summarize it in that same manner. This is just that book that draws one in on its own. Alex has kindly supplied the potential reader with sample pages, above, and also on his most excellent webpage (which is his name with the dot com after it...clever!) Go ahead, make a new tab and check it out right now, then come back and finish reading my review...I'll wait.
I can state, unequivocally, that reading this book has boosted my understanding of all 'secret' matters of existence to an ultimate degree. Its coverage of metaphysics, quantum physics, non-duality and natural law in such readable terms are a true treasure...
I am 80 years old on my next birthday, and have never opened a comic book in my life. I also don't know how to play a video game.......however, I have been a Course-student for 30 years ( mostly a struggling one) and my eyes were finally openend to most of what the course is really about, when I read Gary Renard's books.Then I found Alex Marchant's book and it immediately caught my attention. I laughed and I cried, but understood just about every stroke of his pen. My kids and grandkids will say, I am NOT with it....actually almost totally out of it.....but immediately, I got everthing as clear as a bell, just the way he explained it. Was I ready for this, or what?......
This book has to be a first - probably the first book presented in cartoon form that is both visually appealing and yet conveys profound metaphysical truth at the same time - so often distorted by many a `serious` publication.
The cartoons are all very neatly drawn and are laugh-out-loud funny, with great cultural references and such clear perspective. I love how Alex has chosen to use various symbols to represent aspects of what he's saying, like the symbol for the ego, the symbol for the holy spirit, the symbol for forgiveness, etc. It makes subsequent learning a breeze based on ground he's already covered.
A feast for the eyes and a treasure for the soul. Any A Course in Miracles practitioner/student would find significant benefit in reading and studying this book. It's clarification of the principles of A Course in Miracles is practically unsurpassed. It can benefit ACIM newbies and veterans alike. And I thought I already knew it all - Alex easily and on...
