Reviews

"Jessica Abel's La Perdida is rich, engrossing, and memorable--a true graphic novel." --Scott McCloud, author of Understanding Comics "Put down your dog-eared Love and Rockets and read this. Fans of Los Bros will recognize a kindred spirit, but Abel is every inch her own artist. Her tale of Carla's catastrophic folly is fierce and unforgettable." --Susan Choi, author of American Woman and The Foreign Student "Jessica Abel is brilliant. She's created amazing work for years, and La Perdida is her classic. It's funny, politically astute, and heartbreaking. It's graphic novel poetry."--Sherman Alexie, author of The Toughest Indian in the World From the Hardcover edition. Jessica Abel s La Perdida is rich, engrossing, and memorable a true graphic novel.
