The thinking person’s alt comics critic Rob Clough reviewed Death in Oaxaca #1 at the Comics Journal online.
MEANWHILE, I finally finished the Spanish translation of this first issue, with help from Paco X González Muñoz. Actually, it was more than help, Paco did the actual translation, I just did the graphic part. Thanks Paco!
I had to graphically marry the words to the pictures on the existing pages. Let’s just say there was, and still is, a learning curve to the whole process. But, it’s also really great to have my new work in Spanish!
