Review Source: Publisher, Edelweiss

Genres: Graphic Novel, Slight Science Fiction, Gritty

Plot: Imagine Mark Zuckerberg has cancer and chooses to blow all his money on 140 random people. People who will get more if there are less of said 140. Think “Twitter meets The Hunger Games”.

Review: It’s no secret that constant exposure to technology and social media has changed the way we interact and learn. Some believe that it can limit our compassion, communication skills, and a slew of other things. Unfollow takes an even darker turn. It couples together the social ineptitude that is raging out there in the world with pure and simple greed. It begs the question, “What would you do for money and fame?” Lie? Cheat? Steal? Kill? I’m not sure what I would do in the shoes of the 140, but I sure as hell want to find out how this unfolds. Sign me up for vol. 2, please. #I’llfollowyou140

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Who Should Snag It: If you want to see the downfall of man, Unfollow is the one for you.
