French Graphic Novel Titan Coming In Septmeber

 

 

Popular French Canadian Graphic Novel Comes to Print for First Time in the United States

Oni Press is proud to announce the United States publication of Quebeçois creator François Vigneault’s graphic novel Titan, coming in September 2020. 

Editor Grace Bornhoft said, “Titan grabbed me in the first few pages. I immediately recognized that it had all the elements of a gripping sci-fi thriller, but it was the story of the tension between the exploiter and the exploited that sets this book apart.”

TitanFor creator François Vigneault, writing Titan felt like coming home in some ways. “I worked on Titan for over five years, most of that while I was still living in the States. I was born and raised in the USA and spent almost my whole life there, so it’s no surprise that Titan is inspired by historical and social currents of my homeland.”

When MNGR First Class João da Silva arrives on the moon of Titan to take charge of Homestead Station, he finds the massive mining colony plagued by tensions between the giant, genetically-engineered Titan workers, and the Terran management. As anger mounts, what began as a routine posting quickly turns into something far more dangerous.

Phoebe Mackintosh thought she left her fighting days behind her when she turned her back on the “mixing” circuit. Now, she finds herself caught between a past she’d rather forget and a future she can’t predict.

Together, they must find a way to pull Homestead back from the brink of disaster… Or Titan might be the spark that sets the entire solar system ablaze.

When asked about the story’s relevance to today, François said, “Science fiction typically does a terrible job of accurately predicting the future, but it has always been a great way to explore contemporary anxieties (just ask H.G. Wells). Titan is my attempt to write a fun, exciting sci-fi story, but at the same time maybe it can be some food for thought as we head into the election, and beyond.” 

According to the editor, “Even though it’s set in the far reaches of outer space, Titan has a lot to say about our present world that I think will light a spark with readers.”

Titan will be available online and in stores on September 15, 2020.
