BABYLON: LOVE IS A DEAD PLACE

ISSUE ONE

It’s Kim and Cin’s day off. Plans were made. Snacks, vidding to the new holo. Adult substances and other things two 20-something professionals might get into on a Tuesday in this abandoned city of the uninsured. But then the STEM crashes and all plans are canceled. Because the world is ending. 

The STEM, a worldwide cyberpathic network which patches all people on Earth into the holoverse, is crippled from a cyber-terrorist event and plunges everyone back into a digital stone age. Amidst all the psychoactive fallout in the city of Babylon, thousands of rival gangs are driven mad and a ground war begins. Now it falls to Kim and Cin, the founders of the Anarcho Community Defense Syndicate, a.k.a. the Rainbow Princesses, to defend their territory.

On the other side of the mile-high security wall, in the privatized Prime-tropolis, ultrawealthy Person-State Fraiser Hollow is found brutally tortured, sending multi-world markets spiraling. The citizens of Prime-tropolis watch horrorstruck as the lawless city of Babylon starts crashing into darkness.

 “Life is like someone taking a hard dump in your wide open mouth while another relieves 2 litres of hot steaming piss in your fresh cut wounds. Even though the skies scream hell and your mind is broken by an endless assault of promises, it doesn’t mean you’re in this alone.”

—(Cin)di Mutsuragi, Esq.

Alan Clark is a graphic novelist, journalist, artist, and friendly neighborhood supervillain.
 
Of a prolific output, his two primary works to date are Babylon, the graphic novel gold-standard for transhumanistic, dimension-traipsing, and crime-instructive soap operas, as well as the groundbreaking Daily Earth, which yielded an incredible graphic journalism retrospective of the year 2013.
 
A radically disruptive, unbelievably detailed, and transgressive style is fused in Alan’s work to a rough-edged dedication to figure, perspective, expression and gesture that gnashes through pages and can keep the reader’s interest on strength of the images alone. His stories and writing complement his artwork: constantly in flux, moving and probing, asking questions and provoking discussion about relevant issues, yet always with corrosive wit and clear-eyed levity.
