Detour

Bernardo P. Carvalho & Ana Pessoa

It’s summer. His parents are away on holidays. His friends too. His girlfriend asked him for a break.
Miguel has the whole house for himself. He watches TV, plays videogames, reads his drivers’ manual. It seems like the world is suspended in this Summer heat.

“My only wish is that nothing will happen; that everything remains as it is: the planet standing still with its gravitational law, its traffic rules.”

Where will this detour lead to? Riding along their usual track of great quality, the authors Ana Pessoa and Bernardo P. Carvalho have collaborated for the first time on this graphic novel.

Recommended for readers age 14 and up.
