From Gilbert Hernandez, the award-winning co-creator of Love & Rockets - the series that defined alternative comics - comes SLOTH, Hernandez's first original graphic novel, presented in breathtaking black and white by Vertigo. Troubled teenager Miguel Serra becomes a walking urban legend after he wills himself into a coma and wakes up one year later virtually unchanged - except for his sloth-like pace.

Will it be love or rock-and-roll suicide? Find out in SLOTH, a surrealistic romantic drama in the spirit of David Lynch that takes the art of sequential storytelling to new heights in its use of light and shadow. 6.875" x 9", 128 pg, B&W.
