    Written by Jean Van Hamme. Art and cover by Griffo.

    When society pushes the ideals of social equality to their breaking point, the result can easily become plain absurd. For example, in order to avoid the chronic budget deficit of social security, what better way is there but to forbid people to take any chances with their health? Even if it leads to a Medical Police and fines for anyone not watching the weather forecast.

    Three Kafkaesque stories that paint a frightening picture of an over-regulated world.

    Volume 2 - 1st printing.

    Written by Jean Van Hamme. Art and cover by Griffo.

    Three more short stories to illustrate the dangers of a welfare state running amok.

    A single card to access all the details of a man's life - personal data, medical history, bank details - now that would make everything simpler, wouldn't it? But what if the card stops working would the person still exist within society? And in a world where births are regulated, how can children born illegally survive in said society if it doesn't even recognize they exist and won't let them have access to anything?

    Softcover, 8-in. x 11-in., 56 pages, full color.

    Cover price $13.95.
