“Monochrome,” a Short Illustrated Story About Life’s Bleak Future

No one would call illustrator and comics artist Ersin Karabulut an optimist after reading his short comic, “Monochrome.” Published in the summer issues of Uykusuz magazine, the three-paged comic tells a story of a world where people can literally lose their color. At first, becoming colorless is seen as a sense of shame, but gradually as more people accepted the inevitable, the dull, colorless world becomes the new normal. There’s plenty of metaphors you can copy and paste in place of “color,” but Karabulut leaves it open-ended, letting us come to our own conclusions on society and our reliance on mass acceptance.
