196 full-color pages

A visceral ride through a bio-punk future where life is cheap and death is the only way out.

Welcome to 2085, the year of the rabbit. 

Fluorescent Black takes the reader into the hard-hitting dark future of South East Asia where gene-tech has divided humankind into two races: the rich, healthy Superiors and the sick, crazy Inferiors. These two races live in neighboring cities separated by a heavily fortified border.

A superior named Nina is the test model for cutting edge genetic designs. She is a paragon of physical and mental health: her brain and body represent billions of dollars worth of corporate research and development. During a bio-terrorist attack, Nina is kidnapped by a street gang and taken across the border into a ghetto full of man-made splice animals, psychopathic hookers, drug addled freaks, deadly insects, poisonous ecosystems, and abandoned tenements.

When the corporations tighten their dragnet, the gang quickly discovers that this is no ordinary captive... but she may be the key to solving all of their problems.

Our Take: We're always looking for good comics here at the Legion, after all we're HUGE comic book!  Heavy Metal has always been synonymous with phenominal erotic and hardcore themed titles.  Fluorescent Black is without a doubt one of the funnest and most original books I've read in some time!  The artwork is this great blend of sketchy grit and clean animation that gives it a life of its own.  The story is great, a dystopian view of the future where DNA is the hot topic. 

This limited edition hardcover version of the comic (there is also a paperback available if this one sells out too soon) was printed in an edition of only 500 and includes a glossary of terms in the back to help you with the story and a fuckin' great pin-up gallery including huge talents like Tim Bradstreet!  This one is a no brainer, if you love indie comics then you'll love this one!
