Blurring the lines between the real and the spiritual,
\r\nSpanish cartoonist Laura Pérez leads the reader
\r\nthrough a dreamy journey from the Arizona desert to
\r\nthe land of the dead. Two young women road trip through the Arizona desert in search of
\r\na spiritual awakening. Crowds gather to see the village wise woman
\r\ncommune with the dead. Strange bright lights flash across the night
\r\nsky, provoking all manner of interpretations. A mosaic of experiences,
\r\nTotem offers tantalizing glimpses of characters on their own journeys
\r\nconnected by some ethereal thread. The narrative slips through
\r\ntime and space, delicately drifting from reality to different states of
\r\nconsciousness. Like a vivid dream, this story is rendered through
\r\neerie settings and potent symbols, a spiritual puzzle inviting the
\r\nreader to piece together.
