We traverse into the year 2021 where technology has developed the impossible. Elysium is the digital heaven for the dearly departed that allows users to be able to log in and visit them. Created by the Ilias Kyriazis, Elysium Online is a 90+ full-color graphic novel puts the reader a few days before the release day of Elysium. Everything sounds great in writing and the beta testing was going great but little does everyone know that the digital citizens have a hidden agenda. This social network involving the dearly departed turns to a darker tone once the release day hits and the whole world begins to experience the devastating aftermath the digital citizens brings to them. Elysium Online is an artistic masterpiece that shows not only beautiful and marvelous scenery but devastated and gruesome events as well. Funded via Indiegogo, Elysium successfully passed their goal with a 128% funding back in 2013 and even has the first few pages available to preview.
Elysium Online is a great read with stunning visuals that will throw the reader into the world and experience it as if it was a movie. The book has left us wanting more than just the ~90 pages it provides but the quality of the book is top-notch. Ilias Kyriazis' ability to convert the story's utopia to a world of devastation with ease is truly a privilege to witness on a comic book. The success of the story has been great to the point that the physical copy of the book is SOLD OUT. Luckily, Kyriazis also sells the book in digital format (pdf & cbr) for $7.00. Elysium Online is a recommendation to anyone and especially those that love a good sci-fi/horror comic. Kyriazis' portfolio includes work such as Secret Identities, Melody, and Falling for Lionheart. You can follow Kyriazis' work on Facebook or his own page and see what other projects he may have in store in the near future.
