Summary
Graphic Novel. From the award-winning co-creator of legendary underground comic "Love & Rockets" comes "Sloth", a surrealistic romantic drama set against a background of haunted lemon orchards, teenage love affairs, and darkness on the edge of town. When troubled teenager Miguel Serra decides to induce himself into a coma, he awakens one year later a shadow of his former self. Revered as an urban legend, and slothful in appearance and movement, he embarks on a journey across a desolate suburban wasteland where the answers to his problems are rarely forthcoming. With a host of off-beat characters and unusual situations, this beautifully illustrated voyage into a Lynchean world guarantees to knock you out!
Summary
One year after willfully slipping into a coma, troubled teenager Miguel Torres becomes a walking urban legend as he wakes up virtually unchanged--except for his sloth-like pace
