‘Magnum’ is a comic book inspired by the contemporary figure of the “new rich” in our society -a term to describe those who have only recently gained wealth and often perceived as having money, but no taste. The project portrays the adventures of three characters who each symbolically represent an extreme aspect of human behaviour and our relationship with money. Through the different stories, full of politically incorrect and dark humour, the comic book prompts the reader to reflect critically about the ethical relations between wealth and our actions.
