This surreal adventure from the creator of Dog Boy and Bughouse serves up Lucha Libre wrestlers and an ancient vampire who prefers chicken. Two expats move to remote Oaxaca, the fabled highland city in southern Mexico. Rex, earnest yet duplicitous, flees from mid-life crisis and fear of death. Beautiful Gertie, cynical but honest, is just plain bored and craves adventure.
Francisco’s Pick of the Week at Meltdown Comics
“Steve Lafler has been creating comics and graphic novels, always in his idiosyncratic, ground-level, easygoing style, for over two decades now, carving out his own hand-drawn, rough-hewn comics art that always seems to go in its own very personal directions. His work on Death in Oaxaca shows that same attention to maintaining his own style and approach, and the results are intriguing and fun.” – Jason Sacks, Comics Bulletin
