From Gilbert Hernandez, the award-winning co-creator of Love and Rockets – the series that defined alternative comics – comes SLOTH, Hernandez’s first original graphic novel, presented in breathtaking black and white by Vertigo.
Troubled teenager Miguel Serra becomes a walking urban legend after he wills himself into a coma and wakes up one year later virtually unchanged – except for his sloth-like pace.
Discover how a haunted lemon orchard, a mysterious goatman and murder collide as Miguel, his girlfriend Lita and their friend Romeo take on the teenage wasteland of suburbia.
Will it be love or rock-and-roll suicide? Find out in SLOTH, a surrealistic romantic drama in the spirit of David Lynch that takes the art of sequential storytelling to new heights in its use of light and shadow.
