Starship Eden by Seyfried and Ziska

858454

Starship Eden is an excellent comic book by Carlsen Comics (Hamburg) from 1999 by Gerhard Seyfried and Franziska “Ziska” Riemann. I ran into at the bookstore in King Library, cost $2, pendejos!

The leaders of the capitalist West, led by President Pumpkin of the US,  build a huge spaceship to carry them and their luxury items to an Earth-like planet, leaving the rest of the world to their own devices. While in Berlin an imperfect but honest anarchism survives a resurgence of fascism, exits the death spiral of systemic scarcity and creates an urban utopia, the presidents and the pope learn that all their wealth can’t protect them from the hardships of space conquest. Check it out on Amazon! Besides, comics are a great way to learn a new language, for those of you who can’t read German.
