Tom Beland, creator of the multiple Eisner-nominated series True Story, Swear to God, returns with an all-new graphic novel. Heads will roll in 2014 when the world gets a taste of CHICACABRA! In Puerto Rico, there is a girl, Isabel Sanchez, who could be like any other girl you see in high school... except for the creature who lives inside of her that's a ruthless killing machine. Chupacabras, Vejigantes, fistfights, and weed!

    Chicacabra is a welcome addition to anyone's trade paperback collection. While it does stutter on a few sections, the art and characters are enough to get you to enjoy all 200 pages from beginning to end. Love, loss, and everything in between is touched upon in Chicacabra. A strong comeback for Tom Beland and hopefully volume 2 comes out sooner rather than later. Read Full Review

    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson Jun 13, 2014

    This graphic novel was also obviously crafted with an eye toward serial publication as traditional, periodical comics. The pacing and chapter breaks made it abundantly clear. That it was published as one volume instead isn't problematic at all, though. The chapters/individual issues make it easy for the reader to peruse the book in spurts. But then again, the characterization, artwork and storytelling are so engrossing, there's really no need for the pauses. I'm thrilled to add this touching volume to my bookshelf. Honestly, it's a shame it wasn't also offered as a hardcover edition. I would've been happy to plunk down an extra few bucks for an edition that had an even more permanent feel to it.

    Though it touches on loss and family, forgiveness and growing up, at its heart "Chicacabra" is about empathy. From literally seeing through another creature's eyes, Izzy learns how to metaphorically see the world through other people's eyes. Fun to read and full of humanity, this is just a really lovely book. Read Full Review
