Book Launch: Lane Milburn presents Lure
In conversation with Tom Kaczynski

Greenlight welcomes cartoonist Lane Milburn for the launch of his debut science fiction graphic novel, Lure, a scintillating, close-to-home dystopic parable rendered in haunting and kaleidoscopic detail. In a questionably-distant future, the world’s elite use the ocean planet Lure as a luxury vacation hub—but when climate change threatens Earth’s long-term habitability, many of those who can afford it move to Lure for good. When artist Jo Spartz is invited to Lure to collaborate on a large-scale public art installation, it seems like the chance of a lifetime until she stumbles across a nefarious plot by her corporate benefactors and feels compelled to go public. Sound familiar? Milburn is joined in conversation by cartoonist, publisher, and author of Beta Testing the Ongoing Apocalypse Tom Kaczynski for a conversation on dystopian fiction, the craft of comics and the value of art in the light of climate change.

The world's elite use the ocean planet of Lure as a luxury vacation hub for a decade. But when climate change threatens Earth's long-term habitability, many of those who can afford it move to Lure for good. When the opportunity to work there for a year is offered to visual artist Jo Sparta, as part of a group of artists collaborating on a large-scale installation of public art, it seems like the chance of a lifetime. But then, Jo stumbles across a nefarious plot by her corporate benefactors and feels compelled to go public. Lure showcases Milburn's rich visual imagination, with the planet Lure itself an ever-seductive, otherworldly paradise against which he spotlights themes of climate change, the disparity of wealth, and the value of art — all in the service of a grippingly moral thriller.
