A supernatural, dark and gritty graphic novel about a thief searching for buried treasure who must overcome his greed in order to escape from a Mexican ghost town.
Ricardo Lira Acuña's first illustrated novel combines fantastical Mexican folkloric traditions with the American pulp graphic genre for a visually-stunning and suspenseful read.
It reminded me, at turns, of 'El Mariachi,' 'Treasure of Sierra Madre,' and even 'The Shining.' It's a wholly original, mindbending, sexy ghost story.
