HanX, a fictional village located in the outskirts of present-day Shenzhen, China's industrial heartland. Government excesses over the years has transformed the village from an idyllic, rural community into a sleaze den for fat cats.

Told in a unique 'dual-facing' format-- incorporating both graphic and prose story-telling modes-- 'Goliath of Shenzhen' explores the limits of freedom against the backdrop of contemporary China. In a nation that has undergone gut-wrenching changes from state-sponsored development, it raises the question, "Could there have been a better way?"
