Plutocracy

written & illustrated by Abraham Martinez

Year 2051. The largest company in the world, called The Company, takes over the government on a planetary level and begins to run it as if it were a company. In a plutocracy, being richer is equivalent to having more power, there are no longer elections, but shareholders’ meetings in which the vote is based on the number of shares that each citizen owns. The government is made up of those who accumulate the most shares and everything is governed by the laws of the market, which gives rise to a curious political system. In this context, an anonymous citizen decides to investigate how the world has reached that situation beyond the official version. Without knowing very well why, members of the government itself end up encouraging him to carry out said investigation apparently against his own interests, facilitating access to all the information.

INTRANSEXTELLAR by Jimi Macías

A graphic novel of science fiction set in Madrid in the early 90’s. The author combines the codes and clichés of the genre with visual and literary quotes from various authors: from David Lynch, Almodóvar or Kunihiko Ikuhara to Wes Anderson or Haruki Murakami. The resulting story fundamentally reflects on gender roles and alludes to issues that are currently topical, such as transexuality and the visibility of LGBT families.
