Most of us can still remember our days back in school and how much fun it was to get out of class and go on a field trip. There’s a new series coming out, called “Field Tripping.” The comic book series is delivered in digital form. The timing is perfect as school is back in session for kids all over America. “Field Tripping is Cosmixology’s new launch for the season and here are some reasons why you may want to check it out.
What is it?
James Asmus and Jim Festante were joined by Jose Garcia as writers of the new animated television series. It’s not just about field trips, the series is actually much more. It’s about a mysterious school bus that a flighty teacher uses to take her students on field trips, but these are no ordinary adventures. The bus takes the kids into parallel dimensions where they get stuck because the kids break the machine that has transported them there. The worlds that they are stranded within are strange and although they just want to get back to their own realities, they are unable to return and they must endure the fantasies fraught with danger and some of the most incredible experiences that could possibly be hatched in the mind of a middle school child.
Field Tripping would probably be better classified in the sci-fi genre. When the kids left they were little, and seven years in the future, those who had survived their ordeal came through as teenagers. The teens act like younger children until they are faced with squaring a vendetta that causes them to act like adults. The worlds that the kids visit are bizarre and filled with life and death events which culminate in all of the things that a person fears in their childhood. The writers bring in elements of life that typically happen in the minds of middle school kids, complete with crushes, prates, ghosts, unicorns, space and more. These are worlds that are filled with terror, anxiety, and possibilities. Ryan Ferrier expertly supplies the letters with Jose Garcia rendering the art. This digital comic is packed with vivid colors and renderings of a variety of detailed environments in the different worlds that the kids are jumped into. Five issues have been completed for the release.

There are a lot of us who have been “Field Tripping” for years in our own worlds and the comic just points out that there comes a time when we have to turn the corner and grow up.
