In 2019, a famous Argentine comic writer is killed by the Secret State Police. To the young gravedigger Milo’s amazement, at the funeral he recognizes four of the author’s characters, each apparently arising from another world and time. With strong and unique characters like these, Figueras develops an enthralling story that has more in common with our real world than we might think at first glance.
