An existential comic book about how friendship and fantasy can win even over death. The author masterfully combines the stories of a young woman who lives in a squat and young boy who is writing a book where the hero of Karl May’s westerns, Winnetou, never dies. The plot follows squatters at wild parties all over Europe as well as those living in the legendary Czech squat Milada. The author worked on her debut for over three years.

Praise

“This graphic novel by the author writing under the pseudonym Toy Box is the first work that attempts to describe contemporary Czech society in a comic book, moreover, it is a very personal book with acknowledged autobiographical elements.”
