Goodreads Summary:
Wormholes in your kitchen. Gravity failures at school. Quantum tornadoes tearing through the midwest. As with all natural disasters, people do what they always do: They adapt and survive. And if things get really bad, the Federal Bureau of Physics (FBP) is only a call away.
FBP: Federal Bureau of Physics is the story of Adam Hardy: Young, brash and smart, he's a rising star at the FBP, but when a gravity failure leads to the creation of an alternate dimension known as a "BubbleVerse," Adam is sent on a rescue mission and finds his skills and abilities pushed to their limits when he discovers his partner has a different agenda...

I love the premise of this series. The idea that the laws of physics are turned upside down and we can't count on the simplest of things (like gravity) to work is so intriguing. And I think a great foundation is built for the series in this first volume. There's the main story and then underlying mysteries. The artwork is colorful and simplistic. I'm glad I happened upon this series and am looking for great things from it in the future.
