Kracaribuus started life as a very different project, way back in 1997. Back then, in the midst of the CoolBritannia era, a friend and myself believed we could become the rock stars of literature. We wrote (around 80% complete) a novel, part of which was based in the mysterious land of Kracaribuus. As these things do, the dream fizzled out.
In 2017, I resurrected Kracaribuus as a comic. A world with limited resources, struggling to keep it’s people alive. It felt like a perfect microcosm of our own world and the struggles we face. I decided to use Kracaribuus to explore questions of freedom and limitations. How do they co-exist when resources are limited? Should population be controlled? Can we maintain freedom of movement? Freedom of choice?
