In 2010 I was asked to create a short story for the yearly Tyrolean literature anthology Filadressa (Edition Raetia). The theme of the issue was “tradition and modernity”. I came up with 6 pages about a dystopian future where the region of South Tyrol is a multinational corporation conquering planets to transform them into alpine-themed holiday parks. The Space Schützen (a mix between space marines from Warhammer 40K and the tyrolean “Schützen”, some form of self-organized militia from the 18th century) are the private, mercenary based, militia of this corporation
Parasite comics, are aspecial form of comics that uses the conventions and the iconography from other media and incorporates them to create a new hybrid language and dramaturgy.
