I had no expectations when I opened this book. Even after reading the back cover, I was baffled as to what it was truly about. The drawings in this book are very rudimentary, and I’m unsure if it is intentional or not. Either way, it suits the story quite nicely. Those of you intrigued by religious history (like I am) will find this form of retelling quite exquisite, and those of you who never quite understood the enjoyment of history might find that there is a wonderful story to be learned via the colorful drawings and bubble conversations. Professor Ilan Stavans brings you interesting characters while taking you on an unexpected journey through Santa Fe. There is also a dissonantly similar historic twist that happens during the 1600s. While I’m not sure I would purchase this for the reading value, I would gladly add it to my graphic novel collection.
