Brubaker 16 issue run from 2000-2001 was published in one volume for the first time in 2012. Here's a plot synopsis without giving anything away:
(1) 20 years ago, a cataclysm of unknown origin damaged the world's air and water supply
(2) people live in separate districts...the poor in the outskirts of the city while the rich reside in a luxurious, technologically advanced, weather controlled center part of the city
(3) the protagonist is Beezer, a 20-ish year old semi-drug dealer with family & girl problems
(4) Beezer has visions...he can see the world as it used to be
(5) once the authorities of his dystopic world realize Beezer's abilities, he must go on the run
The book has aspects of the Matrix, the Hunger Games and Trainspotting.
For $30, it's physically a flimsy trade on weak paper. Still, the content is worth the purchase.
