Created by Calgary-based artist Harvey Nichol, Aklas is an upcoming anthology comic book spanning 5 Issues, set in the class-divided world of Mega Manila in 2048. The comic takes a fresh perspective on FilipinX futurism, climate change, and the consequences of government and corporate corruption by subverting the techno-orientalist tropes that typically dominate the Cyberpunk genre.

Aklas is for everyone. Even if you’re not Filipino, the Philippines are a placeholder for much of what’s happening in the larger world.

Climate change, scientific advancements and inequality are happening everywhere; it’s all a part of Aklas.
