Panoptica up-ends every dystopian cliché you've ever heard. It's a technicolour cartoon version of Brave New World. It's 1984 with knob gags.
If you love sci fi satire in the best tradition of Pohl & Kornbluth, Douglas Adams and 2000AD, then Panoptica is the satirical novel of celebrity, surveillance and media manipulation you've been waiting for!
