LIKE THE SERIES' MR. ROBOT 'AND YOU LIKE COMICS? WE LEAVE 7 WORKS THAT MAY BE INTERESTED AND MEET
THE ESSENCE OF THE SUCCESS OF THE TV SHOW IN THE AUDIENCE.
It is one of the great series of the moment. Mr. Robot has managed, with just two seasons, earning a very large within the broad spectrum television series that make up today's audiovisual space. That space has obtained thanks to an amazing interpretation of Rami Malek (winner of the Emmy Award 2016 for Best Actor in drama category) and the story of a hacker with serious problems of misanthropy and schizophrenia. For that reason, and taking into account the publication of our fellow CBR , we will share with you a list of seven comic books (or graphic novels, as more you like it ) for all lovers of Mr. Robot .
1- "V FOR VENDETTA" (ALAN MOORE AND DAVID LLOYD, 1982-1983).
The comic that gave rise to the recognized film is one of the most interesting works at the time of creative explosion that suffered Alan Moore in the 80s the writer Northampton , alongside British illustrator David Lloyd , pictured with layer and an antihero mask of Guy Fawkes , placing in England fascist after a bloody war. That dystopian society that creates Moore has echoes and reminiscences of Orwell and Bradbury , but always with the indelible mark of political thought of the writer at the time: the anarchism . With a dose of political fiction, a comic without onomatopoeia or background noises and a theater watered by many phrases of William Shakespeare , V for Vendetta it is perfect for the anti - craving fans of Mr. Robot .
2- "GLOBAL FREQUENCY" (WARREN ELLIS; 2002-2004).
Although the draft US publisher Wildstorm is practically a thing of Warren Ellis , alongside English writer also they participate throughout the project portadista Brian Wood and colorist David Baron . Moreover, the twelve numbers that make up the complete works of Global Frequency are drawn by a different illustrator each, highlighting pencils Steve Dillon , David Lloyd , Gene Ha , Lee Bermejo and Simon Bisley , among others. You will understand at first that Global Frequency is on this list thanks to its synopsis: the name Global Frequency refers to an organization independent intelligence whose purpose is to protect society from the consequences of the secret projects that world governments have made over History behind people. Does it sound? Fuck society!
3- "THE NIGHTLY NEWS" (JONATHAN HICKMAN, 2006-2007).
Before Jonathan Hickman became the most important industry of superheroes in comics, man artist South Carolina an aesthetically impeccable work is marked (and complete, because he wrote and drew the same time) by the stamp Image Comics . the Nightly News is a limited series of just six chapters in which Hickman used the technique to paragraph fotoreferencial illustration, getting a tremendously realistic violence that led him to be nominated for Eisner . Why would a viewer Mr. Robot ? For The Nightly News is an impassive criticism of the influence of the media in our daily life and how the powers that stage of power used to subdue and manipulate public opinion.
4- "JOE THE BARBARIAN" (GRANT MORRISON AND SEAN MURPHY; 2010-2011).
This curious work arising from the twisted mind of Grant Morrison (capable of anything) , and the pencils Sean Murphy is probably one of the biggest hits of the line Vertigo of DC Comics in recent years. While it is true that history has nothing to do with antisistemas neither politically nor communication nor criticism of the present society or similar parallels, Joe the Barbarian should be in this list. And that our fellow CBR not have included it in his. The fact is that Joe the Barbarian tells the story of a boy ( Joe Manson ) pretty gloomy, unsociable, imaginatively and diabetes problems . In addition, the background is expanded with the recent death of his father in the war in Iraq and the bills begin to suffocate her mother and threaten to evict them . In this context, Morrison puts the protagonist on half a hypoglycemic attack that causes hallucinations , an adventure in an imaginary world with consequences in the present. Hence the analogy between the character of Joe Manson and the Elliot Alderson , the latter because of an obvious schizophrenia.
5- "WIZZYWIG: PROTRAIT OF A SERIAL HACKER" (ED PISKOR; 2012).
Graphic novel by American artist Ed Piskor published in 2012 by publisher Top Shelf Productions . The novel tracks a character named Kevin Phenicle (inspired by several real pirates like Kevin Mitnick , Kevin Poulsen or Joybubbles ), a hacker who is immersed in this universe of cyber attacks and how it becomes a fugitive known as Boingthump . The so explicit about the world of hackers and how these cyber attacks are carried stories Wizzywig: Portrait of a Serial Hacker take us directly to the television universe of Mr. Robot .
6- "FIGHT CLUB 2" (CHUCK PALAHNIUK AND CAMERON STEWART, 2015-2016).
It was inevitable, if we talk about stories featuring antisistemas or the like, not include Fight Club 2 (editorial published by Dark Horse Comics ) in this list. And is that, even though the sequel to the book Palahniuk (who later became a screen legend by David Fincher , Edward Norton and Brad Pitt ) with illustrations by Cameron Stewart has not been as bright as expected of it this graphic novel contains very referential moments for fans of Mr. Robot . And only the first part (and the film The Fight Club ) and the problems of schizophrenia by the hatred of the prevailing society were reasons enough to think Elliot Alderson . Incidentally, the covers of David Mack are IMPRESSIVE (as data).
7- "THE PUNISHER: THE PHANTOM OF WALL STREET" (MIKE BARON AND WHILCE PORTACCIO, 1988).
This issue of the series The Punisher , titled The Ghost of Wall Street , was published in 1988 by Marvel Comics and was the creative team of Mike Baron (screenplay) and Whilce Portaccio (drawing). In this adventure of Frank Castle , the antihero marvelita put at their point of punishing one of the greatest symbols of capitalism look: Wall Street . Castle is pushed to act because of speculation and financial corruption, reaching define Wall Street as a "monument to the most savage capitalism". It should be noted that the writer, Baron, is a highly political writer and is not the only occasion in which he moved that literary positioning a work of the Ninth Art. We recommend reading here Nexus , starring an antihero galactic dedicated to kill all dictators or totalitarian states that are in the galaxy. Almost nothing!
