May 25, 2019 (24 days ago) |
BOSTON: Costa Rican-American artist and author Joaquin (Kino) Gil is no stranger to creative mixtures, and in this conjoining of Graphic Novel and colorful digital artwork he in turn mixes Latin American mythologies, Victorian science-fiction, and a changed Old West, integrating past and present with magic, age-old technology and vanished civilizations for a rollicking fun yarn.
The Road to Xibalba is set on an alternate West Coast, and follows an Open Call to all those who dare, a motley group of adventurers, for a contest to decide who will control the Gates of Xibalba, a real-life Hell. The contenders have to face for six nights the deadly riddles that the Houses of Xibalba will lay before them. While winning will make one a Gatekeeper, with extended lifespan and incalculable riches... losing means death.
