edition preQuel’s successful graphic novel-series, the Anger Diaries, as a part of an epic cross media project about a sinister secret time- and world-dominating society called “Sheng”, was originally created in 1998. The diaries are based on the memories of John F. Sebastian, a deranged sheng-hitman. This album in full color features the first three issues (2002-2009) including the out-of-stock diary one / The Citoyen in one 306-pages-trilogy for the first time translated into english plus some bonus material.
“Vogeltanz offers a fully mature and relentlessly explicit drawing style in order to illuminate the most degraded sites in this world: his exuberant page compositions are bathed in bright colors; his backgrounds threaten to engulf the single images or allow them to appear briefly, emerging on the visible page surfaces. A visually exhilarating reading experience.” (paul gravett)
