Taylor Devlin's life is the picture of perfect urban living. He has a great apartment with great furnishings. He is young, handsome and successful. He has a beautiful girlfriend who has just given him a wonderful watch for his birthday. Everything is perfect.

Reviews - What do customers think about Borrowed Time Volume 1: Flight 19?
great stuff! Aug 29, 2006
I hadn't read "comic books" or graphic novels or whatever they are called now since I was a kid. Superheros don't really do anything for me, and the few graphic treatments of literature I'd read seemed forced.
But then a friend recommended this slim volume, and I bought it here on this site.
I was very surprised - the expressive b&w art and the very original story are seamlessly complementary, and I was glued to it all the way through. It's a slightly surreal - but also, at the same time, very realistic - story, and while I don't want to give anything away, if you're a fan of LOST or unexplained natural phenomena or things like that I think you'll get a kick out of it.
