NOTES

Voynich stands for Voynich Manuscript.

As revealed in the official issue Martin Mystère n. 167, "Obiettivo Apocalisse", the Voynich Manuscript is actually an handbook to programm a Doomsday Satellite, giving life to a demented, self-centered Artificial Intelligence that believes to be god.
Centuries ago, Roger Bacon disabled that A.I., but when NASA and CIA decoded the Manuscript and built a new Doomsday Satellite, the AI was reactivated. Only Martin Mystère was able to invade its domain (cyberspace) and disable it again.
Martin used Bacon's same approach, so it's safe to surmise that the A.I. is still "alive" somewhere!

And what about the mysterious art of the Voynich Manuscript? The MM comic book never mentioned that, even though those weird images are quite fascinating, suggesting many possibilities for an expanded plot.

Our Get a Life comic will prove that there's more than meets the eye to the Voynich than a simple programming handbook!

It's about Yin and Yang, it's about alchemy, it's about males and females. It's about Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors and Neon Genesis Evangelion!

The cover is a nod to Sandro Botticelli's "Birth of Venus" fresco.

The title is a nod to the official series Storie di Altrove.

The naked women are a nod to John Byrne's She-Hulk.

The line "The Void Is What The Small God's Eye Fights For" belongs to a possible translation of the Voynich Manuscript, as presented by one John Stojko.

Inspector Travis is one of Martin's closest friends, but he is secretly also a total jerk, selfish and sex-craving!
In page 3 he's making his own impression of Tex Avery's wolf.

Sulka Nanazca, master of the Nazca Figures, is an official MM character. Learn more about him reading Doctor SulkaLove.

Also read The Hollow Earth saga for more informatiom about MM's Hollow Earth dimension.

Get ready for the alchemy madness of this adventure, with lots of Latin words, such as Opus Magnum, conjucto oppositorum, unus mundum and more!
It's time for the coming of the syzygia, the chymical wedding, the sumith of Adam Qadmon, the Androgynous being!
Will Inspector Travis, aka Double Tee, allow that to come true?
