Author

Overview

The story of Earthboi, a social media influencer who becomes the leader of the global economic movement, is told by his closest followers. In fact, Earthboi is a child of Nature, and his memory is the memory of planet Earth – its goal is to restore balance to nature, to create a sustainable world, with or without humans. A tense narrative, a modern fairy tale about alternatives, the climate crisis, and the bizarre culture of influencers.

Praise

Capturing the present age in drawn images is not an easy feat. In 2013 Lukas Jüliger succeeded in doing so with his book debut. With Unfollow he once again hits the spirit of our times.

Andreas Platthaus, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

With Unfollow, Lukas Jüliger has created a powerful and multi-layered graphic novel for these times. He tells of people who cannot distinguish desire from delusion, a condition generated by the despair of recognizing the human inability to translate knowledge into action. A startling story about utopias, the power of the internet and the innocence that is guilty.
