SHOPLIFTERS WILL BE LIQUIDATED TP VOL 01 (RES)
The largest retailer in the world requires the best-trained loss prevention staff, and Se-curity Officer Nussbaum defends the company interests at any cost. Life, human rights, rational thought are all secondary concerns. But his world is upended when he finds a society living under the retail outlet – a culture that challenges his notions about
consumerism and sense of self. Is he ready for the message? Imagine Judge Dredd working for Amazon, and you've got a hint of what you're in for.
From Patrick Kindlon (PATIENCE! CONVICTION! REVENGE!) and Stefano Simeone (CLANKILLERS) comes SHOPLIFTERS WILL BE LIQUIDATED – a satirical take on consumer society.
