For the first time ever, Eisner Award-nominated artist Mike Hawthorne (Superior Spider-Man) tells the true and tragic story of enduring abuse, discovering a love of art and a passion that helped him to build the home he never had in this graphic novel memoir about family, survival, and what it means to be Puerto Rican in America.
Mike Hawthorne’s mother is left alone to raise her son in New York City, a city that torments them both with its unforgiving nature.
But when Mike falls victim to an old world Santeria death curse, a haunting sign from the old country of something his mother could never truly escape-she begins a series of events that drive him away both physically and emotionally.
