New Byzance is the first of three sets of Books consisting of three volumes each with a concluding 10th album. This saga of Corbeyran is a look into a uchronia, a world perfectly similar to ours, but where things have evolved in a subtly different manner. In New Byzance since the attacks of September 2001, capitalism has been sweeping the political landscape. Bin Laden is seen as a liberator and his followers have installed a Utopia of fundamentalism, which governs for more than 200 years since the reorganization of major Western and Asian nations. It is a rigorous and severe society, where police are omnipresent... Volume 1 is titled "Ruins" while volume 2 is titled "Resistance." "Uchronia" refers to a hypothetical or fictional time-period of our world, in contrast to altogether fictional lands or worlds. A concept similar to alternate history but different in the manner that uchronic times are not easily defined (mainly placed in some distant or unspecified point before current times), sometimes reminiscent of a constructed world. Some, however, do use uchronia to refer to an alternate history, like New Byzance. The word is a neologism from the word utopia (Greek u-topos not-land), replacing topos with chronos (time). It was coined by Charles Renouvier as the title of his 1876 novel Uchronie (L'Utopie dans l'histoire). A scanlation by the Dragonz Team headed by Darthscanner.
