Moonward George Mathen (AKA Appupen – Old man Grandfather)

A graphic novel filled with characters who are crippled with greed, lonliness and hope live in a world called Halahala. The book starts at the beginning of Halahala and moves forward.

The artwork in Moonward is entirely in black and white. It is well chosen for Halahala — technologically advanced concrete jungle. Every creature is a machine communicating in the language of language money. There are cash-fed obese men who crave more, the common man is a fly on the wall, a crazed farmer becomes an evil scientist, animals become machines and crops become mutant. (GM brinjals anyone?)
