After taking care of the plunderer boss threat, the crew learns how much hard work goes into creating a community that endures-especially when self-governance is the goal. Meanwhile, the Washbot tries to find his place and role in this new world separate from his borrowed identity as a duplicate of Wash. In the midst of problems and imperfections, there’s hope on the horizon. But when an unexpected event throws everything into chaos, will this be a new start… or the beginning of the end?
Z2 Comics has partnered with legendary Parisian fashion house Balmain for a new graphic novel, Balmain Dreams: 10 Or. Containing more than a dozen illustrated short stories, with each tale focused on one signature Balmain runway design, Balmain Dreams: 10 Or is a graphic novel that builds a series of dreamscapes and fantasies directly upon the key inspirations behind iconic Balmain pieces. Z2 Comic timed the release of this new work to coincide with Balmain’s celebrations marking Olivier Rousteing’s ten years as the house’s Creative Director.
The resulting tome features stories by such artistic and comic industry luminaries as David Mack, Colleen Doran, Alitha E. Martinez, Dani, and Bengal.
A percentage of Balmain Dreams: 10 Or’s proceeds is dedicated to Balmain’s longtime partner, (RED). The house has collaborated with (RED) on multiple projects and products over the years, in order to help raise needed monies for the Global Fund in the fight against HIV/AIDS. With new HIV infections and AIDS-related deaths on the decline, and more people accessing life-saving treatment than ever before, the efforts of (RED) and The Global Fund have been critical to the incredible progress that has been made over the past two decades.
However, the recent emergence of COVID-19 puts much of that hard-won progress in jeopardy. It is feared that the impact of COVID-19 on health programs could result in an increase in AIDS-related deaths and new HIV infections, as health and community systems are overwhelmed, treatment and prevention programs are disrupted and resources are diverted. (RED) and The Global Fund are working to ensure that urgent funding and resources are sent to the countries that need it most, helping to protect the years of gains made in the AIDS fight.
Balmain Dreams: 10 Or is available directly from Z2 Comics and participating retailers.
