About the Book

Young Steno Critone doesn’t want to stop dreaming. In a world where no one has the time to try something that isn’t already provided by the system, Steno fears that his dreams will one day die.

He has no idea that the fate of the world relies on his ability to dream.

Set in a future, post-Eurozone Italy, entrenched in a culture of hyper-capitalism, GOLEM follows young Steno Critone as he is kidnapped during a political protest gone sour. Taken in by the band of labeled “terrorists,” he learns that things are not as they seem in society, and that he has the power to not only change the city, but reality itself.

This intensely imaginative political-sci-fi graphic novel is a visual tour de force, created by contemporary design icon Lorenzo Ceccotti, better known as LRNZ, whose design-influenced illustration provides a lush, fluid backdrop of manga-like dynamism with the cinematic scope of western comics, creating a style that is wholly unique and absolutely breathtaking.

About the Author

LRNZ is the penname of artist and designer Lorenzo Ceccotti, who has made waves throughout the different fields of visual art around the world. Hailing from Rome, Italy, he is a founding member of the collective SuperAmici studio and BRUTUS/CHIMP Co. He was animation director for the documentary “The Dark Side of the Sun,” concept artist on the live action sci-fi short film "The Nostalgist," and production designer for both the graphic novel and upcoming live action feature film “Monolith” due for release this year.

With a passion for music, video games, animation, and film, he has blended all of these inspirations into a unique visual style that mixes line art, painted brushwork, and graphic design. His work sets him apart within a peer group of masters such as Terada, Moebius, Otomo, Bilal, Darrow, Madureira, Steranko, Sienkiewicz, and Stout.

He has also applied this talent to storytelling, with a handful of short comic book stories leading up to his first full-length graphic novel, GOLEM, which has been translated into numerous languages to date. It is a 280-page tale filled with sci-fi adventure, futuristic intrigue, political commentary, and spiritual metaphor using the universal archetype of visual storytelling: sequential art.

GOLEM was published in English by Magnetic Press, who proudly introduced this spectacular visionary work to North American audiences.
