A Guy Who Floats: A Castaway's Comic Strip TPB (2013) comic books 2012-2014
1st printing. Written by Guillermo Ortego. Art and cover by Mariano Krasmanski. The misadventures of a shipwrecked guy abandoned to his fate in the middle of the ocean are told in this illustrated narrative. Clinging to a wooden box floating adrift, the protagonist reflects on his life: his past experiences as well as his slim chances of survival. Helpless and unable to do anything to improve his condition, he is consumed in his constant daydreams, alternating between absolute despair and quiet abandonment, while suffering from hunger and thirst amidst treacherous weather. His thoughts are related in a stream of consciousness style as he navigates both the physical challenge of the seas and the solitary existence of his mind. Softcover (Horizontal Format), 9-in. x 5-in., 112 pages, B&W. Cover price $12.95.
