#790 “Social Fiction” by Chantal Montellier

Social Fiction

Chantal Montellier‘s Social Fiction, published by New York Review Comics with a translation by Geoffrey Brock, is a collection of comics fueled by political anger, hauntingly farsighted satire and attacks on consumer culture.

Emmet and Kumar review the collection, which still feels vibrant and at the same time prophetic, given the original publications dates of the stories from the 1970s and 1980s. Montellier’s work collected here uses science fiction to discuss white supremacist movements, body autonomy – oh, and talking cats.
