Published: Restless Books - May 10th, 2016

This surreal modern folktale blends elements of the supernatural, mysticism, shamanism, and the classic road trip between friends to create a darkly comic and bizarre tale of two women. Albina, an amnesiac, voluptuous albino goddess who has the sexual power to transform men into actual rabid dogs and her tough, yet caring, friend and protector, Crabby, travel across Chile and Peru in search of a rare cactus that may cure Albina of her condition before it destroys the world. Examining life through myth, horror, and black comedy, Jodorowsky creates a heady blend of friendship and love, mysticism and the occult, and, ultimately, what makes us human. This is classic Jodorowsky, a must for any of the fans of his films and comics, and a great introduction to a unique mind.
