About

Earth, 22nd century. After the impact of the radioactive, disease-bringing meteorite Uxor77, a slow but unrelenting apocalypse is triggered. Earth is poisoned, agriculture compromised. In an already over-exploited environment, this creates a global food crisis. Only the rich can afford what little vegetables and meat remain clean, and now the Earth is characterized by the annihilation of animal protein, the spread of cannibalism, and brutal sexual deviances. Anarchy reigns, and survival of the fittest is the only option. Many cities have been turned into independent megalopoleis and are heavily militarized, with entire districts in chaos, often controlled by brutal organized crime. 

The story takes place in brutal Berlin, wherein a new Wall is built, dividing the city once again into two parts, each organized in districts (Bezirk). The Western part of the megalopolis is controlled by a corrupt and immoral government, where a new mind-control technology is heavily experimented, while the Eastern part is entrusted to criminal gangs and brutal bosses who run drug markets, prostitution, and illegal traffiking of human flesh.

In this place worse than hell, Messerschmitt, an Israeli agent, and Kiki Leger, a young French prostitute turned contract killer, must complete their secret mission: to get their hands on a gruesome relic, Hitler's skull, which is kept in the red sector of the Wall.

But to reach their goal, they will have to face those in power, both the government and the criminal bosses, risking to overturn the hierarchies of the megalopolis.

This story features two key characters from Manzetti's novels Naraka - The Ultimate Human Breeding, and Shanti - The Sadist Heaven: KIKI LEGER, a French prostitute turned contract killer, sensuous and lethal; and MESSERSCHMITT, an Israeli agent and mercenary with a dark, mysterious past. The diabolical pair are teamed with a cast of new characters, like Ironhead, leader of a brutal drug cartel, and Tideo, his psycho right-hand man; The Duchess, muse of the most imaginative sexual deviances and maîtresse of Berlin’s brothels 'Kremisa' and 'Neuer Lustgarten'; and Basilius Peters, better known as 'The Red Toad', the corrupted and depraved President of the Berlin Megalopolis; and Madame Organe, at the head of an heretical Church, nothing but a cover for human organ trafficking. And the story’s backdrop? The new Wall, called ‘The Great Snake’, with its gruesome Red Sector.

The Novels 'NARAKA - THE ULTIMATE HUMAN BREEDING' (featuring 'Kiki', one of the main characters of 'Berline Extreme Graphic Novel') and 'SHANTI - THE SADIST HEAVEN' (feauturing 'Kiki' and 'Messerschmitt', both of the main characters of 'Berline Extreme Graphic Novel') are included in the Rewards 'KIKI COMBO' (Naraka novel) and 'UXOR77 COMBO' (Naraka & Shanti novels)

Book specs: 24x17cm, 100 pages, color, softcover with flaps, 100g paper. Apart from the sketches, all artworks by Stefano Cardoselli are on smooth 220-gram paper, 24x33 cm, ink and watercolors. Hurry up because all these rewards are limited!

The graphic novel will be published by Independent Legions, a well known publishing company specialized in dark and horror fiction, which published about 100 books by the most revered authors of the genre. More info: www.independentlegions.com
