'Golem' by Lorenzo Ceccotti is a 280 page story set in a dystopian future Italy. I found the story hard to follow, but the gorgeous art kept me turning pages.
The story takes place in a weird hyper-capitalistic Italy. It follows a young boy who is kidnapped. We meet a faction of people trying to rescue him. There are bright cityscapes full of advertising. There is weird product placement everywhere. People where strange gadgets over their faces that look like they have smartphones mashed up against their noses. There is a final big battle, and it kind of lost me along the way.
Regardless of the messy storyline, the art is just incredible. The artist is known as LRNZ paints beautiful eye candy. The art also holds some hidden icons and messages for the reader to discover. Hints are given at the end of the book as to what to look for.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Magnetic Press, Diamond Book Distributors, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
