Description

Dan Terrell loses his job to a computer in a near-future world where unemployment is skyrocketing. Ever-present surveillance throws his daughter Olivia into a spiraling addiction to attention. As new technologies relentlessly arrive, the whole family struggles to adapt. Written by Ted Kupper and Joe Perry, co-hosts of the Review The Future podcast, Let Go features a view of the world which is neither utopian nor dystopian, but a fully-realized world of emerging technologies and the struggle to adapt and cope. CREATOR BIOS TED KUPPER is a writer who resides in Los Angeles and was raised in Connecticut. He graduated from the University of Southern California in 2004. His first screenplay made the semi-finals of the Nicholl Fellowship in 2004. He attended the Nantucket Screenwriters Colony in 2006. He has written for major Hollywood studios and for the USA television show Mr. Robot. Ted is co-host of the Review the Future podcast. JON PERRY is a writer and game designer.

His card game TIME BARONS was published by Wizkids in October of 2017. Jon is co-host of the Review the Future podcast and is currently working on UFO 50, a collection of 50 retro video games. CECILIA LATELLA was born and lives in Italy. She has been working as a professional artist since 2011, producing comics in a variety of genres and collaborating with several indie publishers. She drew The Endling for Mark Waid's digital platform Thrillbent.com. She also works as storyboard artist and art director for animated feature films and advertisement. In 2010 she was selected by Craig Thompson for a graphic novels masterclass at ACA in Florida. In March 2014 she was featured in CBR's Month of Women in Comics. She also writes her own comics. "I fell in love with Let Go because their take on a family reconciling technology in the future clung to my subconscious for months after reading. That doesn't happen often." Sina Grace Iceman, Self-Obsessed "The team behind the excellent podcast, Review the Future, have taken the enormously important subject of technological unemployment and built a highly engaging graphic novel around it. Science fiction is rarely strong on both characters and the impact of technology, but this book manages that. Definitely worth reading if you are at all interested in the economic singularity." Calum Chace Pandora's Brain, Surviving AI: The Promise and Peril of Artificial Intelligence "A compelling rollercoaster of a graphic novel, filled with fascinating insights into the future of work, social media, artificial intelligence, virtual reality and lifespan extension, all wrapped up in a fast-paced narrative about a family trying to make sense of the future. What starts as a seemingly simple story about a man losing his job, ends up as a captivating meditation on the social consequences of accelerating change. Anyone with an interest in the future should read this." John Danaher Robot Sex: Social and Ethical Implications, The Threat of Algocracy
