THE NEW COMIC SERIES BY MATHIEU REYNÉS
GET READY TO FIGHT !
"There is no truth,
only convictions . "
I am Mathieu Reynès, writer and comic book artist.
After Harmony (published by Dupuis editions in France and Insight Comics in the USA), I invite you to discover my new series, The Theory of K.O. and its heroine, Beck .
The Theory of K.O. is a graphic novel series of anticipation and action.
The series is published online initially, in the form of monthly chapters.
Why this choice of publication?
Rather than a long-term goal of one album per year, I offer you a monthly appointment in digital format to read on computer, tablet or smartphone, whether you are at home in your living room, your bed, in the bathroom, at the office, in transport or in a waiting room ;-)
The paper album version will be published in Septembre 2023.
After many years of social tension due to the various climatic and health crises, governments had to face the rise of a determined ecological movement accusing the Capitalist system of being responsible for the situation, endangering the future of the planet and humankind alike.
The people’s revolt became global, in the same way as the economy.
The “Green riots” led many countries to civil war and chaos.
About twenty years will be needed for society to reorganize and find a relative balance between two opposed worlds that still coexist. One advocates for progress and economic growth in large, highly secured modern cities. The other favors decay and return to a life more in harmony with nature.
The governments agreed to accommodate more environmentally friendly economic policies and made health a top priority. They enforced the "Seed" biotechnological chip implantation as mandatory for all human beings. The "Seed", created by the DARWIN Biogenetic company, allows for real-time individual health monitoring. It detects the slightest abnormal biological symptom and thus prevents many diseases and potential epidemics.
Since her early childhood, Beck is living on an island, away from the fractured world. Now a teenager, she was raised and trained by Wade, a martial arts Master.
One day, Wade does not return from a supply expedition on the continent. Beck then realizes how much he had hidden from her during all these years. She goes in search of him, resolute to face the world she was always kept apart from.
As a social misfit, she finds her marks in the only field that she masters. She takes part in organized fights, a sport that became very popular over the years. She indeed proves particularly gifted. .
Maybe too much ?
