A brutal, original graphic novel crime noir from comics legend Gilbert Hernandez (Love and Rockets). Femme fatale Maria M.’s life south of the border is a sordid cacophony of sex, drugs, and power. She emigrates to America in search of a better life, only to find that it takes more than a change of scenery to break the cycle of violence...
"Hernandez is one of the great craftsmen of modern comics." — New York Times
"Hernandez has become the medium's David Lynch or Guy Maddin, rolling his personal obsessions and freewheeling abstractions into stories that present as pulp, then take some very weird turns." — A.V. Club
"The combination of classic cartooning and cinematic storytelling, as well as graphic sex and violence, pushed to near surrealistic extremes, should satisfy most devotees and inspire the creation of even more." — Library Journal
