The Holos #1

Written by James Vincent
Drawn by Willem Hampson


Private Detective Joseph Flood spends more of his time in cocktail bars than he spends working on cases. Flood leaves most of his day-to-day work to his holographic digital avatar, Joe. Everyone in this future version of China has a “Holo” to help maximise their work productivity - in fact, it’s illegal not to have one. However, this doesn’t stop a growing underground movement of people from wanting to disconnect from these ultra-efficient and idealised digital versions of themselves.
