A planet-wide city, Mibdul is the star system’s feistiest orb. Overbuilt under the auspices of Prime Minister Robberbarron, Mibdul has been successfully attracting tourists and investors. But Robberbarron’s avarice has stirred ancient horrors beneath Mibdul’s surface … and while the planet’s business class continues to scramble for more gains, the young Magla channels her grief and rage following the death of her beloved mother — an activist brought low by Robberbarron’s regime. In this very first issue of the six-part mini-series, witness Mibdul morphing before your very eyes as nature takes its revenge!
Mibdul tells a colourful and gripping story, while also dipping into familiar political scenes to lend a flavour and satirical edge to a story that otherwise draws from a rich well of pop culture and myth.
Mibdul is published monthly, in six issues, starting 14/04/22
With funding by the Malta Book Fund (National Book Council) .
“Mibdul is … a surreal science-fiction environmental satire — from two of Malta’s best young creative talents.” — Gordon Rennie
