Mikel HC (2019 SelfMadeHero) comic books
Written by Mark Bellido. Art by Judith Vanistendael.
Mikel lives with his wife and two children in Costur, an idyllic Spanish town surrounded by hills. He has a job selling candy, but Mikel is a dreamer, not a businessman, and money is tight. What's more, the ordinariness of smalltown life is preventing him from fulfilling a life-long dream: to become a writer. Mikel takes a job as a bodyguard. His family is soon uprooted to the Basque Country, where Mikel is charged with protecting politicians from the armed separatist group ETA. It is a job that provides drama worthy of the page, but only at the cost of fear, uncertainty, and family breakdown.
