In a futuristic city, two mega-companies share power, while indulging in a thankless war to eliminate the other by any means necessary. The crash of an extraterrestrial flying saucer will, perhaps, change that. This masterfully crafted, witty and irreverent graphic novel is the debut from Argentine cartoonist and graphic designer Lucas Varela. “Inspired by the pioneering comic books of the early twentieth century,” Varela has crafted a wordless thriller reminiscent of the work of Jason (I Killed Adolf Hitler). Under the guise of science fiction, Varela has spun a fable, almost an indictment, against consumerism and unfettered capitalism. The individual no longer exists; it is just a pawn in corporate gamesmanship. As the plot unfolds, and the layers of betrayal accumulate, The Longest Day of the Future also proves to be an addictive thriller.
