Novel Wednesday – NYC2123: Dayender

5 Jun

It’s Novel Wednesday!
This week we’re taking a look at the online graphic novel, nyc2123: Dayender. Intrigue, espionage, and a post-catastrophic tsunami that maroons Manhattan, turning it into a John Carpenter-esque meets Rockstar Games Vice City American Mogadishu.

Written and illustrated by brothers (?) Chad and Paco Allen, the series was released almost half a decade ago and presented as a PSP graphic novel (also available on browsers). It’s cyberpunk with elements of SnowCrash/Ghost in the Shell and Necromancer. The writing is quick, smart and the art has elements of the Scanner Darkly/Linklater interpolated rotoscope.
