GRAPHIC NOVEL BRAINBUD

A TOPICAL SCI-FI NOVEL WITH A FOCUS ON ALZHEIMER’S AND FEMINISM

The book is a coming of age story for a public of teenagers and adults. It celebrates strong female characters and the Black Lives Matter movement.

Alzheimer’s disease is the plague of our times. At least 50 million people are
believed to be living with Alzheimer’s disease. Could science get together
with technology and find an artificial intelligence solution to this disease?

This is the premise of this graphic novel. Emma and Gina are brilliant
scientists who invent ‘Brainbud’: an ear-bud that detects electric signals
from all areas of the brain, and sends them to a computer application that
organises them as memories. These are digitally saved and can be re-lived
accurately, with all sensory experience, producing emotional responses.
‘Brainbud’ is a ground breaking invention and everyone wants a piece of it.

But the tool will end up turning against its own inventors and have
unexpected consequences for the future of mankind.
