Gentle Carmel

Gentle never meant to rise from school punching-bag to Mexican hobo and desert-dwelling superhero.
That fate was sealed when he sided with the water creatures.

Beat-up at school for autism and haunted by a
mysterious Hag at home, Carmel
just wants to draw, shower and do stand-up comedy. But when he sneaks into Mexico to find
and murder the Hag, everything changes. He eats delicious fish, rides the
rails, climbs peyote mountain and transforms into flames. 

Artist and author Brian Schrank lets loose in
this epic journey that bobs, weaves and bursts with experimental energy.
Influences range from 80’s cartoons, underground comics, shlock horror, cheap
manga, and pop culture iconography. Brian blends a dizzying range of styles
together to tell the tale of a boy who has a broken mind but an ...

The Guardian’s Playlist

It’s a rare thing these days when I pick up something at a convention, tuck it into my backpack, take it home and finally find the time to read it simply to fall in love with it. When I met the author at Wizard World – Ohio, I thought she was this fantastic woman with the right convention attitude and I had hopes that she would do well that weekend. Her son made me laugh and I thought they made a fantastic pairing and it was pretty great to see them sharing the convention scene. However, like so many things I pick up, I didn’t put much hope in the book wow’ing me. Before I go on and tell you just how wrong I was, let me show you the back cover of the book so you can see what the book is about:
