Comic Art on Mexico

Another followup to the Stumptown Comics Fest.  This post notes two works that both involve Mexico; one in the present day, the other back in the Aztec times.  Above is the cover of Carrie McNinch’s small comic on her trip to Oaxaca to visit friends, called You Don’t Get There From Here goes to Oaxaca.  It’s about 4 inches tall by 3 inches wide, and about 40 pages long, and the inner pages look like this:

As you can see, it’s a line drawing style, and she simply relates the events of her trip, including lots of food and drink along with some visits to historic sites.  I enjoyed this quick visit to Mexico.

The other comic is in color, with an interesting accordian format.  It’s called Lords of Death and Life by Jonathon Dalton out of Vancouver BC, and sample pages are shown below.  If you click on the title link you can see the whole thing online.  I have to admit I haven’t read it yet, but I thought it looked great and am looking forward to the read.
