    La Perdida HC (2006) 1-1ST
    Published 2006 by Pantheon.

    1st printing. Story and art by Jessica Abel. The first full-length graphic novel from the acclaimed young comics artist. This is an emotional, high velocity tale of a young woman named Carla who journeys to Mexico City in search of her true identity, only to discover a self she can hardly recognize. Jessica Abel's evocative black-and-white drawings and creative mix of English and Spanish bring Mexico City's past and present to life, unfurling Carla's dark history against the legacies of Burroughs and Kahlo. A story about the youthful desire to live an authentic life and the consequences of trusting easy answers, La Perdida - at once grounded in the particulars of life in Mexico and resonantly universal - is a story about finding oneself by getting lost. Hardcover, 6 1/2-in. x 8 1/2-in., 276 pages, B&W. Mature Readers Cover price $19.95.
