‘Symbolism Rewired’ is a 21-page, self-contained comic-book story, written by NITRB’s own Joshua Spiller… illustrated by artiste extraordinaire Roland Bird… and lettered by the being known only and mysteriously Bolt-01. And it’s currently available for only £1.50.
Here’s the synopsis
“Silence… silence and poetry fills my thoughts…”
From a deeply surreal and disturbing dream, a woman awakes in a strange sleeping pod, in a disconcertingly deserted laboratory. She has no idea who she is. And even her own mind now feels alien to her…
Set in a faintly estranging London of the not-too-distant future, ‘Symbolism Rewired‘ is a cerebral and grounded piece of sci-fi, that both explores how symbolism may be at the root of human consciousness, and operates as a kind of low-key biography of a fictional future human being.
The comic was originally published by the co-creator of V for Vendetta, David Lloyd, in his award-winning anthology, Aces Weekly.
