Overview Dronefangeren

On a small island lives the Mule Boy. He receives a warning about a catastrophe and locks himself inside his house. The rats have taken over the city.

Should he escape, or should he stay put? After consideration, he bravely ventures out into the empty streets, where he finds someone who’s part of the resistance.

An adventurous, apocalyptic action-filled story about isolation, being daring and giant rats.

The Drone-Catcher is the fifth book about Mule Boy, a series of graphic novels that blend myth, adventure and social commentary, in text and images. Mule Boy’s skewed and somewhat alienated universe enables us to see ourselves and our society with fresh eyes.
