Using a grid of 9 panels over 40 wordless pages, Carlos Santos imagines multiple narratives driven by the power of the unconscious. With precise and accomplished images, Santos has created an experimental tour de force rarely seen in comics.

“Carlos Santos creates strips in a manner that is essentially intuitive. It doesn’t seem like he draws an image, it’s more like he reveals something that is already there. Without sound or dialogue, the author has given life to an amazing universe, parts of it seemingly infinit .” – Eric Bouchard, from his essay.
