A black comedy about a homeless man who believes he is the savior of humanity. Is he "The One" or a lunatic roaming the streets of SF?

Transient Man is a black comedy about a homeless man whose visions lead him to believe he is an inter-dimensional savior of humanity, on a mission to save the universe. Is he indeed the "One", chosen by mystical divine forces to embark on a crusade against ultimate evil, or a hopeless lunatic, aimlessly wandering the streets of San Francisco?

Transient Man is a spoof on the hero's journey that's part Men In Black, part Raising Arizona, flavored with liberal portions of Ghostbusters and John Steinbeck. It is a ballad to the city by the bay, and a heartfelt tale of the sacrifices one man will take for his love for his family, his friends, and all of humankind.

Written and illustrated by Justin Coro Kaufman, it's over 212 large format full color painted pages.

Transient is not like anything you've ever seen.
