My translation of Chantal Montellier’s visionary Social Fiction — three politically charged sci-fi graphic novellas — is now available for pre-order on Amazon. Montellier, an early contributor to the legendary Métal Hurlant and its American spinoff Heavy Metal, created some of the most stirring and disturbing comics of the 1970s and 1980s.
This collection brings together Wonder City, Shelter, and 1996, presenting them in English for the first time. Montellier’s blend of dark humor, gripping storytelling, and consistent focus on the perils of totalitarianism, shows her to be a master of both comics and science fiction. It is preceded by my brief introduction and followed by a Q&A with the author.
