Schickes neues Comic von Warren Ellis, Matt "D'Israeli" Brooker und dem Designbüro BERG. SVK ist eine klassische Agentenstory, die nicht so klassisch auch mit Spezial-Farbe gedruckt wurde, die nur mit der mitgelieferten UV-Taschenlampe sichtbar wird. Schöne Idee!

Comics break the rules of storytelling, invent new ones, and break them again – more often than almost any other medium. This graphic novella is about looking – an investigation into perception, storytelling and optical experimentation that inherits some of the curiosities behind the previous work of BERG.

Litho printed on 115gsm silk paper in tones of black and blue, SVK uses a third ink invisible without the SVK object. The object is a UV light source which unlocks hidden layers woven throughout the comic book. Reading SVK becomes a unique and strange experience as you see the story unfold through the eyes of Thomas Woodwind.

First and foremost SVK is a modern detective story, one that Ellis describes as "Franz Kafka's Bourne Identity".

It's a story about cities, technology and surveillance, mixed with human themes of the power, corruption and lies that lurk in the data-smog of our near-future.
