"UPGRADE" -- a chilling anti-corporatism comic book

1 post / 0 new

You might check out "UPGRADE," a smart and nicely drawn comic-book for adults, free on Amazon, about a crazy future world where corporations run society, privacy is gone, consumerism is rampant, and nobody seems to care. At only 40 pages, it’s a fast read, both creepy and funny and unfortunately, rings way too true.

It's set a sci-fi society where everyone eagerly awaits and installs "upgrades" that take away their personal freedoms under the guise of "convenience", making people more and more dependent upon a techno-corporate-government, and yet they eagerly embrace. Sound familiar?

The world we're leaving for today's teens...

Without immediate global action on climate change, today's teenagers will be forced to live with the consequences of our inaction. The World Bank has issued their third report of climate change, and it says that global temperatures could rise by as much as 4 degrees Celsius by the time today's teens hit their 80th birthday.
