SUPERBUG IS A SURREAL SCI-FI FANTASTY TRIP.
An award winning story by Gio Forlenza and surreal artwork by Dan Forlenza.
“Superbug” is a story that shines a much needed modern light to Franz Kafka's quirky roach story, The Metamorphosis. Like the infamous book, the premise is similar; only this Gregory is a 21st century teenage boy living in a privileged suburban household with his over-optimistic father, obsessive-compulsive step-mother, and spoiled little half-sister. The family dynamics present us with conflict, teenage angst, irony and humor that comes from everyday, relatable situations.
The overarching allegory of The Metamorphosis is the idea that society isolates humans from one another. The book was written over a hundred years ago, but the theme of familial isolation seems more appropriate now than ever. Families are still living under one roof, but in their own rooms, focused on their own electronic devices and caught up in their own individual worlds.
“Superbug” takes a more upbeat, lighthearted, dark-comedy tone than Kafka’s bizarre and surreal approach.
Thanks for your interest in Superbug,
