Overview


2054. Douglas Pistoia is a soldier, battling on the frontlines of an increasingly questionable war. He’s also a word-renowned celebrity, made rich and famous by Multicorps Inc’s live broadcast of gritty footage shot by the troops themselves—those who are known as “Cyclops.”

But through the fog of war, Douglas begins to see glimpses of a clear, harsh truth: He’s nothing more than a cash cow, funneling record profits and ratings into the hands of his greedy, manipulative employer. And at what cost? As innocents are massacred in the never-ending skirmishes, will Douglas have the courage to train his deadly crosshairs on the mighty Multicorps?

Meet the Author


In 1998 MATZ’s hit series, THE KILLER, with artist Luc Jacamon, made its comic book debut. It became a bestseller that found its way onto the shelves of bookstores in many countries, all the way to the USA with Archaia. It was then optioned by Paramount for a movie that might be directed by David Fincher. MATZ has also created a new line of comic books, Rivages/Casterman/Noir, which are adaptations of noir novels. But my MATZ’s day job for the last 15 years has been to write for the video-game industry, as he has been an employee at Ubisoft for all these years. Now in charge of the writing department, MATZ has been involved with games such as “Splinter Cell,” “Ghost Recon,” “Rainbow Six,” “Prince of Persia,” and the “Assassin’s Creed” series.

Artist Gaël De Meyere was born in 1982 in Belgium. He’s been drawing comics since the age of 13. He studied art at the prestigious Holy Institut Luc in Brussels, where he graduated in 2007. CYCLOPS showcases his first professionally published work.
