In her English language debut, Galvan utilizes swaths of electric and flourescent colors to create a series of short comics stories that intertwine and explore the dehumanizing effects of contemporary society. Galvan's characters navigate a candy-colored world of geometric energy. Departments of inhumane resources dehumanize the people it is purported to protect; information is determinedly mined like the gold of the 21st century that it is; induced suicidal thoughts are a tool to manage overpopulation. Like Black Mirror, Galvan's near future is less paranoid dystopia than it is a logical extension of things to come, where the malice of large corporations manifests in small, everyday ways. Full color illustrations throughout.

Reviews

Galvan's work is a welcome expansion of the familiar but still-rich genre of hi-tech futures on the fritz.--PopMatters
When read in sequence, the aggregated ambiguity and absurdity [of these stories] results in a sense of unease and eventually awe at Galvan 's originality and technical expertise.--Library Journal
