Original Johan B. Vandenblink-Taselaar started Hiro Mort as a synopsis for a movie script but during the process the sketchy scenario turns into a kind of comic.
In an apartment building a journalist notes just by accident that he didn't see his neighbour for a long time. He wonders why and starts a small investigation. His mysterious neighbour turns out to be a well-known manga artist in Japan who had published books in the nineties. Surfing the net the reporter discovers a blog of the artist. One of the small movies contains a cruel scene… Has the manga artist shot himself in front of a webcam? Why did the journalist never hear about it? Or is this story and are these images just fake?
