It's 4090: the last of humanity occupies an unnamed city resembling a disembodied collection of outsized human organs, each citizen possessing a personal force-field that protects them from the increasingly toxic atmosphere. A last-ditch effort to mine suppressed emotions as a source of energy backfires, causing the stoic society to violently unravel. Completed for Frank Santoro's Spring 2012 Comics Correspondence Course, 4090 is a tense, explosive tale of loss and redemption on an apocalyptic scale.
Influenced heavily by H.G. Oesterheld and Alberto Breccia's masterpiece El Eternauta, with visual nods to Kirby-era Fantastic Four, 4090's loose, minimal style marks a departure from the cleaner line evident in previous works like Power Out. 100 books feature a limited edition rubber stamped cover.
