Goshena: Queen of the Big In-Betweena addresses questions of death and the afterlife with jest and satire, proposing alternative views on a subject that is often taboo. This surrealistic story features Goshena, hired to greet the newly deceased. Volatile and unpredictable, she has no qualms about throwing dissident arrivals to Jingles, her giant soul- eating frog.
Goshena’s most recent assignment is to welcome Soul #24 (the number inscribed on his morgue drawer), a recalcitrant soul who refuses to accept that he has died and has reasons to return to the Living. But can he or must he go home with Goshena and Jingles? Or ... will he pass his death quiz and move toward the Light?
“Goshena: Queen of the Big In-Betweena is graphic novelist Chuck Bright’s vivid foray into the brash, vibrant world of Goshena New Paris, a life-after-death self-appointed Queen Solomon of souls. With a singular voice and a thoroughly engaging point of view, Chuck has created a surreal universe where heaven, hell, and purgatory collide.”
Screenwriter/Producer, Brokeback Mountain
"Chuck Bright gives new meaning to deadpan humor in this most surreal of not-so-life journeys. If you end up loving Goshena, which you will, make sure you don’t bring her home to mother."
—Tarek Shahin, author of Rise and the Al Khan series
"Goshena hooked me from the very first page. This woman has attitude, and you’ll absolutely love her. Highly recommended.”
