Awaiting the End of the World

Francesc Puigpelat

"A comic novel that begins with an apocalyptic misunderstanding and shows us the order of priorities of a teenager facing the collapse of the world... And you? What would you do before the end of the world?"

It all starts with Fiona’s mistaken interpretation of a fragment of an email. This happens at the same time as another premonitory event: her father, a Catalan police bigwig, has been called to a meeting in Brussels with other international security forces. Everything makes sense: the end is near! But, as she cannot save the world from doom, Fiona can only do one thing: make the most of the time left. She writes the things she wants to do before the apocalypse: her first kiss, a parachute jump, meet Rosalía... All this while awaiting the end of the world.
