Despite blindness from dysfunctional retinas, Retina Boy had a great life in Des Moines. He was a guitar prodigy and leader of an awesome classic-rock cover band. He also became inseparable pals with the smartest girl in his class, Marcy, who was unable to walk. They were a perfect pair -- she was his eyes, and he was her legs. Never did he imagine he was from an alien world, and that he, Marcy, and his band would be called upon to save the Earth and the dystopian planet from which he came.
