Time Noir

Dr. Freddy Fluid is not your typical gorgeous superhero. His eyes flicker like stardust, he can breathe underwater, and obsessive-compulsive disorder has him wound tighter than a two-dollar timepiece. Freddy knows what will happen one minute into the future—in the next. Freddy’s psychiatrist girlfriend, the ever graceful Grace Whisperer, lives entirely in the moment—in the now.


When Freddy is abducted by an omnipotent alien, he learns the fate of the Universe lies within his brilliant mind, which is as stable as a canoe full of clowns in a cyclone. 

Meanwhile, all over Miami, colorful characters are vanishing, finding themselves afloat on an alien vessel. Elsewhere on the spaceship, Freddy takes an excruciatingly comical journey into his psyche using everything from acupuncture to ayahuasca to balance next and now in order to prevent the Universe from—as the alien warns—kablooey!
