Passageways through the Metaverse is a comic about Aliza and her father’s crazy, cynical friend, Barney, and their adventures in different metaverses using a golden book that has a troublesome sense of humor. Sometimes the metaverse they visit is an alternate universe, and sometimes it’s just a strange place in the universe altogether.
Throughout their adventures, Barney wants to get out of the adventure as soon as possible because he’s been there and done that for over 8000 years, but Aliza wants to connect with the people. Sometimes there’s a lesson to be learned, but not if Barney can help it.
In this fifth issue, Aliza and Barney travel to a metaverse with swamps and talking cats. Barney is trying to tie up loose ends after returning from his hiatus.
