The graphic novel "The Carnival of Immortals" (1980) written and illustrated by the French cartoonist and storyteller Enki Bilal is the first part of the Nikopol Trilogy. The story is set in a dystopian Paris in 2023. The city is ruled by a fascist dictator, all is decaying and succumbing to chaos. To me the story doesn’t look very interesting but there are a lot of nice artwork of an decaying city.
I've seen things you people wouldn't believe.
Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion.
I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate.
All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.
