THE ROOKIE ~ FOOTBALL SCI-FI!

THE ROOKIE ~ FOOTBALL SCI-FI!

HERE’S ANOTHER INTERESTING PODCAST WHICH HAS ALSO BEEN TURNED INTO A GRAPHIC NOVEL OVER AT ADDITIVE COMICS ~ FOOTBALL SCI-FI, I’M THERE!

The Rookie is a summer blockbuster podcast novel by Scott Sigler, author of EarthCore, Ancestor and Infection.

Imagine a story that combines the intense football action of “Any Given Sunday” with the space opera style of “Star Wars” and the criminal underworld of “The Godfather.”

“The Rookie” is set amongst a lethal pro football league 700 years in the future. Aliens play positions based on physiology, creating receivers that jump 25 feet into the air, linemen that bench-press 1,200 pounds, and linebackers that - literally - want to eat you. Organized crime runs every franchise, games are fixed and rival players are assasinated.

Follow the story of Quentin Barnes, a 19-year-old quarterback prodigy that has been raised all his life to hate, and kill, those aliens. Quentin must deal with his racism and learn to lead, or he’ll wind up just another stat in the column marked “killed on the field.”
