The year is 2051. Not that far from now. The excessive merging of companies since the 20th century have resulted in a single company employing all the workers in the world. It didn’t take long for The Company, as it calls itself, to take over world government too. It was the ultimate victory of the Plutocracy.
Homero worked quietly as a detective in The Company for years. One day, he quits, determined to find more meaning in his life. Maybe journalism? He decides to investigate how The Company came to be.
Hmmm. Plutocracy is definitely based on what is currently happening in the world. The Haves are increasingly purchasing politicians so that tax and other laws are re-written to favor the rich. Hopefully, we will stop it before it results in the dystopian future depicted here. Even the artwork is drab with a greenish cast. Still, I enjoyed the surprise ending. 3 stars.
Thanks to Papercutz and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
