Daniel Kravitz is an unhappy thirty-something with no direction in life. Tasked to run the antique shop he has inherited from his parents, he's miserable, but doesn't know how to get himself out of the situation. The one bright spot in his life is his friend and employee Abby, who loves the store.

Then, one day Rufus Reginald Rochester bursts into the establishment to tell Daniel of his destiny as the Chosen One. The only thing that sounds worse to Daniel than his current existence is one in which he is called upon to save the world. Will he be forced to embrace the mantle he despises, or will he finally just be left alone to be miserable on his own?

This series is more serial than most of our stories, so we'll be breaking it down into Volumes. Think of each volume like its own television season. Or collected graphic novel.
