As their escape draws near, Mateo shows EL a different way to live: free from constant pain, and filled with pleasure, sex and new sensations. But these lessons serve to underscore the cruelty of EL’s captors and to awaken a new level of anger within him. Meanwhile, Mateo tests the limits of his own empathy in increasingly dangerous ways.”

If you loved issue one, prepare to be blown away by issue two.

My heart really breaks for El and his existence. The pain and suffering he knows, and the realization of everything he’s never been able to have. It’s all beautiful and so well written.

The art is gorgeous, and tells the story just as beautifully. But along with that beauty comes some horrifying imagery. There’s a particular panel that, upon seeing the reveal, I felt shocked and horrified. I won’t say what it was, but I’m sure you’ll understand when you see.

Grab issue #2 this week!
