IDP: 2043: A Graphic Novel
Various artists and writers
£14.99 hardback Freight Books (2014)
A graphic novel that brings together a dream-team of European artists and writers to imagine the country in 30 years.
The year is 2043. Melting ice caps have caused sea levels to rise. Across the world populations have abandoned low-lying cities to create new sprawling townships on high ground. Scarce resources have created a vast social chasm. The rich have access to everything; technology, healthcare and power, while the poor have nothing.
Cait McNeil is a presenter on reality TV hit, Sky Farm. Filmed in a pioneering, hi-tech tower, she's the 'bit of rough' from the shanty towns that complements urbane co-presenters and Sky Farm residents, Danny and Jools.
But something is wrong. The hybrid, genetically re-engineered livestock developed by Sky Farm’s scientists are going berserk. And someone has just brutally murdered Cait's boyfriend.
Who is the mysterious Gartman and what are his plans for Cait? What are the secrets in Cait’s past that have placed her in mortal danger? In IDP: 2043 (IDP short for internally displaced persons) a stellar cast of British and European writers and artists have created a high-octane, white-knuckle ride of a thriller and a haunting vision of one possible future for us all.
