The creative team of the comic book series, ©alifornia, Inc., recently released their second issue, and the team has been very generous to the Fanbase Press staff, as we are now able to share the below preview!
In the near future, ©alifornia, Inc. is a new corporate country still in its formative years with factions in-fighting to achieve their ideal of what the new nation should be.
It’s 2047, 18 years after ©alifornia seceded from the United States. After creating a new fresh water source to ensure independence, ©alifornia’s borders are closed, and it supplies 80% of North America’s produce. With Silicon Valley, high-tech is the largest source of revenue, their massive military presence is now privatized, and Hollywood PR continues to shape the world in its image. All citizens are employees of ©alifornia, Inc. and live the ideal ©alifornian life: surf, sun, and gluten-free. But as employees living on company property, certain privacy rights are waived. With CCTV on every corner, ©alifornia is little more than a totalitarian state masquerading as a utopia, and no one is bigger than the brand, even the top brass.
