An enigmatic parable of the modern city, where strangers can become friends and vice versa

Francisco de la Mora


A young man flees a disaster at home and comes to live in the city with his sister. He makes ends meet by taking a job as a deliveryman-only to encounter a flood of old friends and past acquaintances on his daily route . . . At first elated by the company of these waifs and strays, eventually their own desperation for work begins to trouble his conscience-but what happens when you can’t deliver help to everyone? Chris W. Kim’s distinctively detailed graphic style embodies an elusively disquieting parable of modern isolation and the ties that bind-or fail to bind-society together.
