Description


Critically-acclaimed writer, artist and director Ugo Bienvenu presents a beautifully illustrated graphic novel which takes a dark introspection on the future of the world of the social media.

Set in a bright dystopian future, fans of the sci-fi fan genre will love exploring the story of a man on the run for protecting cultural treasures in his robot surrogate.


A Black Mirror-esque future-shock satire.

In the near future, society lives in a social media metaverse where data storage is at a premium and historic works of art are simply deleted to make space for holiday photos. Appalled by this way of life, an archivist risks everything by stealing and hiding culturally important artefacts inside the robot acting as the surrogate carrier of his unborn daughter. However, he’s soon discovered, and the family are forced to go on the run, with tragic consequences.

Fans of dystopian sci-fi will love sinking their teeth into this cautionary tale.
