Yes No Such an atmospheric representation of crime and corruption in Spain is a terrifying treat to read- Malaga becomes a character in itself due to its consistent depiction as a sunny place for shady people. The vibrancy of the characters leaps off every page. I couldn't recommend this graphic novel highly enough. Congratulations to all involved!

Lately, reality has given us food for thought [...]. The reality of recent years has been terrible, and it’s getting worse. While we were developing the project what was happening fitted like a glove. What’s been happening is sordid. What’s happening is very sordid.

Málaga is not represented in the world of the graphic novel. If you tell a dark story it has to be in New York, Chicago, maybe Barcelona, el Rabal or film noir Paris. And we said, why not do something from here? It seems that everybody thinks that everything that’s dark comes from outside and we live in the perfect setting. Even if you go to a village with a population of 1,500, you’re going to see corruption: the depraved, the femme fatalle, the drug dealer, the thief, the corrupt politician and good people as well, but we aren’t here to tell stories about princesses and frogs.

The Technology Park presents an idealised image of Málaga thanks to the omnipotent Europe of some years ago, which allowed unsustainable companies to open, and today it’s scary to go there [...] business at the PTA (Technology Park of Andalusia) was based on money that came from the EU when Europe supported projects so that they would flourish. This situation really existed: there have been companies that took money for unsustainable projects and ultimately failed. Even so, that entire infrastructure was created, and now it’s like a ghost town.

We had a comment from a woman who said we were violent and not politically correct with women [...]. The truth is that the initial image was of a gunshot through the spyhole of a door, with a woman on the other side. Buñuel cut open an eye, we shot through a spyhole. 

If you don’t like a cascade of blood, well, then don’t visit he web. When you see the political situation, doesn’t it piss you off the same way? When you want to give a wake up call, anything goes. We wanted to tell a harsh story, but the filth just reflected what was happening when I wrote the story.
