Perramus The City And Oblivion h/c back

Juan Sasturain & Alberto Breccia


Page 45 Review by Publisher Blurb

Fantagraphics presents Alberto Breccia's revolutionary (literally) graphic novel for the first time in English. Perramus follows a political dissident on the run from the skull-faced Death Squad as he encounters a variety of eccentric characters including a director of imaginary films, a troupe of guerilla circus folk, a tin-pot dictator, and Ronald Reagan... This highly anticipated collection was created while Argentina's military dictatorship was still in power and is a cartooning tour de force, with a revolutionary message that remains vital to this day.
