Spain & Morocco
11×8 inches, 176 pages
full colour, hardcover
Since 2009, Spain & Morocco was serialized weekly, to much acclaim and a steadily growing readership. The story follows Walt and Dan, two roommates, who leave behind their uneventful lives for a backpacking trip through Spain and Morocco. While hoping to marvel at beautiful sights, eat delicious food, and maybe hook up with some women, they find that those pleasures come at a price. The sights become hallucinations, the food overwhelms their senses, and the women they meet are much more than they bargained for.
In his new graphic novel, Doug Wright Award winning cartoonist Alex Fellows takes us on a journey that is as much about visiting a foreign land as it is about being young and trying to discover who you are.
