Akiva Vol. 1
You may’ve noticed by now a new product in our store, which is entitled Akiva. This is a vastly different series than the Vignettes books and I wanted to take a moment to talk about it.
“Karma, alone, is too slow to curtail the wickedness of men.” – The Originator
Humanity had hoped that through technological and scientific advances that they’d become galactic utopian societies. This is not the case. The futuristic promises of America in the twenty-first century were merely a façade for what they are, which is a multi-generational caste system living in a dystopian hell.
Life has become wrought with the misery of our pacifism, but this will no longer be tolerated. Akiva was created to be the counterbalance for the ills that plague our society. This book chronicles her rather gruesome and blood-thirsty conquest to liberate her society of its greed, through any means necessary.
So, if you like dystopian cyberpunk meshed with anti-heroes, philosophy, sweater stretchers and violence…then this book is for you!
Why Write Akiva:
To alter an expression, truth is scarier than fiction. Like it or not the current status quo is that we’re living in a cyberpunk nightmare. We’re just missing more of the trans-humanism and futuristic neon soaked skylines.
Although, Neuralink might be pushing us more in that direction :p.
I’ve succumbed to the folly of “living long enough to see myself become the bad guy,” as a way to deal with my frustrations of the real world. So, I naturally created a true anti-hero graphic novel series to be a loose referendum and condemnation of this dystopian hell.
As you get pulled into the book you consider it as foreign and judge the inhabitants of the world, but look closely and you’ll see the truth through the subtly.
If this sounds interesting to you be sure to check it out!
