This week we add Futile Comics No. 7 by Mike Centeno! This comic was inspired by the problems Mike has seen for years in his birth country of Venezuela, as well as the problems he sees starting in his adoptive country of the United States. This comic, “Orinoco” tells the story of a young man recruited, indoctrinated, and then horrified by a brutal revolutionary government.
This comic is fictional, and even gets a little magical at times, but if you want to read some of Mike’s feelings about the similarities between Venezuela and the United States, we encourage you to check out his recent comic on the Nib, “What Happened In Venezuela Isn’t So Simple.” Enjoy!
