About this title


Gentle Carmel never meant to rise from school punching-bag to Mexican hobo and desert-dwelling superhero. That fate was sealed when he sided with the water creatures.

Beat-up at school for autism and haunted by a mysterious Hag at home, Carmel just wants to draw, shower and do stand-up comedy. But when he sneaks into Mexico to find and murder the Hag, everything changes. He eats delicious fish, rides the rails, climbs peyote mountain and transforms into flames.

Artist and author Brian Schrank lets loose in this epic journey that bobs, weaves and bursts with experimental energy. Influences range from 80's cartoons, underground comics, shlock horror, cheap manga, and pop culture iconography. Brian blends a dizzying range of styles together to tell the tale of a boy who has a broken mind but an unbroken spirit.
