About the Book: The Immersion Program

(Floating World Comics, 2019, translated by François Vigneault)

The subconscious is the battlefield of the near future.

“The Agency” seeks to recover a prototype of the EP-1 module, a frightening new weapon that harvests memories and reveals the unexplored subconscious. Freelance operative Anna Kiszczak is caught in a triangle of espionage where both conspirators and perception are suspect.

Factions within the Agency secretly pursue their own interests as the true potential of this new technology is revealed. Paranoia spreads as reality unravels and memory becomes a sinister refuge.
