Download the PDF and CBR files

Dear readers, I've been having a lot of trouble with hosting sites, it was my own doing because when I started this webcomic I had no idea what I was doing. I started posting in livejournal, then moved to bolismoni. blogspot because I thought that would be my brand and finally here. But a lot of my images were in a site that now is asking to upgrade my account, anyway, it's all a mess. So I'm gonna take down the comic pages here and only the direct downloads will be available.  I'm apologizing for any inconvenience.

Recommendation: Southern Bastards

This is the last recommendation because the end of Detective Fausto approaches and with the tone of these last pages, I think this comic full of rage it’s a perfect way to say good bye: "Southern Bastards". 

 Southern Bastards is about football, barbeque and hate. For these reasons Earl Tubb left his town in Alabama and he vowed to never return, decades later Earl must return to take over thw family's residence. Tubb's father was a strong man, a sheriff with a big stick; Earl never could live up to the expectations, which still torments him. But the return of Earl does not sit well in a town that hates outsiders, Earl soon confronts the coach (and criminal boss) Euless Boss who is worshiped and feared by all. And the confrontation ends badly for Tubb. 

After these events, we discover the world Craw County. Boss coach’s past, his assistants and thugs, their enemies and the rest of the people with their southern customs. With a touch of social criticism. Even more when Tubb's daughter, Roberta Tubb, arrives to find out what happened to his father.  
The hatred is palpable in this comic, it’s in the stories as in the art, it is no coincidence that their covers are filled with red tones. It's visceral; it's impactful as a brutal tackle in a football game but as addictive as good BBQ ribs.
Southern Bastards tells the life in South America, but its themes are universal. There are many towns around the world where hate and customs blend generation after generation.

Recommendation: Supermachos

On the last recommendation I talked about Scalped and how it deals with native Americans in the current US. Now I’ll recommend you a comic about Mexican native Americans in the 60’s. But don’t worry, it’s a funny comic strip except when it isn’t.
- And we Indians, we never win?.
- As far as I know just in MLB baseball.
Created by the cartoonist ‘Rius’ (Eduardo del Río) in the 60’s , Supermachos is a social commentary on the situation of Mexico. The economy, racism, politics, class culture and more are the issues cover by this satire. 

- Children of 'San Garabato' we will end corruption.

Set in the fictional town of ‘San Garabato’, the main characters are two ‘indians’ Calzozín and Chon, who are constantly being treated unjustly. But they have a somewhat positive outlook on life. The rest of the town consists of a corrupt Mayor and his corrupt police department, a Spaniard bartender, devote women, a wealthy and greedy business man and more. 

Most of the stories focus on how the revolution didn’t work for them, the system isn’t helping them. They will always get the short end of the stick, but they’re ‘Súpermachos’ and they won’t complain.
But despite the serious subject, the comics never stops being funny.
I don’t think Súpermachos was translate to other languages and even if it did, many jokes aren’t exactly very translatable. So if you find a copy, get a Mexican friend to read it to you. 

- In this country you have to belive in the constitution, in voting, believe in the good intentions of the goverment, in the revolution, believe that we're free, belive in the far beyond, in the near beyond...

Recommendation: Scalped

I’m late to the party, I know. For years I heard wonderful things about “Scalped” but I didn’t made the effort to buy it while it was being published, partly because I was focused in getting the superhero classics and I didn’t have enough money to get 7 or 8 trades at my LCS.
Luckily for me, last year there was a digital sale and I didn't hesitate and got all the volumes and I read them all in a month.
And everything they said was true, “Scalped” is a masterpiece. 
The story centers on an Indian reservation and the complicated, sad, violent and heartbreaking lives of some of their residents. The story starts with Dashiell Bad Horse , a young man that comes back to the reservation after more than a decade away and joins the criminal syndicate of the Chief Lincoln Red Crow, but unknown to his new boss, Bad Horse is a Federal Agent. 

That is the main conflict for the series, but the writer Jason Aaron explores the backstory of many characthers, he takes the reader through different storylines, we get to known the rest of the people, where they come from, where they’re going, we see them struggle and we ultimately see (some of) them die and it all means something for the reader.
The artist is R.M. Guéra, and he’s a god. Every character feels like a real person, he makes them unique, he makes them express their feelings without the dialogue. The scenery is perfect too; Guéra draws the desert, the city, a small poor house full of people, a meth lab. There is nothing he can draw and make you feel like it exists somewhere. The coloring artists Lee Loughridge and Giulia Brusco were great and Jock made stunning covers. 

In the end, this series meant a lot to me. It shows what it’s to be a native person in a modern world that seems to have forgotten them. The heartbreaking feeling to know nobody else cares about your people, and how in all that despaired there are people who won’t give up, who won’t back down
I’m crying again.
