We like to hold off on posting comics on holiday weeks, in the fear they’ll be lost in the shuffle, but we really couldn’t wait to get Dave Ortega’s comic Dias De Consuelo No. 1 up on the site! We’ve been fans of Dave’s comics for a long time, but Dias De Consuelo marks a giant leap in Dave’s comics making. An ambitious undertaking, Dias De Consuelo is a portrait of his grandmother, her mother, and grandmother, and how their lives intersected with the Mexican Revolution. It’s an intimate and patient story, beautifully drawn and excellently executed. We’re so excited to read the second issue, Dave had to tell us to chill the heck out, he’s working on it. We hope you’ll be just as enamored with it.
AND! If you order it now, you can get 15% off its cover price! Just enter the coupon code 2015 during checkout, and all the items you order will get 15% knocked off. This offer expires when the year does, so get on it NOW!
