The Illuminati Ball
Five people receive invitations to a ball held by one of the most secretive and infamous organizations in history. Their hosts are masked, their promises unreal, their motivations unknown. At the Illuminati Ball, nothing is what it seems, and the guests find themselves plunged into a world they don’t understand . . . one where the rules of life and death are not what they seem.
The Illuminati Ball is a curious read, more akin to a play or the script for a murder mystery dinner than your usual graphic novel fare. Combining elements of science fiction, historical drama, and stagecraft, the story is loaded with twists and turns, and for a while, the reader feels as off-kilter as the guests.
The art is sumptuous, lavishing details on masks, clothing, and different elements of performance to make the world feel both lived-in and painstakingly assembled. The more time you spend immersing yourself in the decor, the art style, and the conscious choices made by both the host of the ball Pig King and his author Cynthia von Buhler, the more you get out of the story. This isn’t a one-read tale, this is a bath you must luxuriate in.
Driven by misunderstandings, preconceived notions, baser instincts, and acts of both distrust and honesty, this is a dinner party none of the guests, or the reader, will ever forget.
