Nenetl of the Forgotten Spirits is a spirited horror story about a ghost searching for her family during the festival of the Day of the Dead, while dodging ambitious exorcist apprentices. Vera Greentea (Recipes for the Dead, To Stop Dreaming of Goddesses) and talented artist Laura Müller (Mega Man Tribute, Subway to Sally Storybook) collaborate to create an autumn-friendly tale of skulls and hope. The first issue introduces the vivacious but forgotten ghost girl, Nena, as she explores the labyrinthine streets of Mexico during its most eerily evocative celebration and Bastian, the first of the exorcists speeding after her – completely for the wrong reason.
- Paperback: 20 pages

"The first issue, just out ($6), is a nice, deceptively gentle entree into what promises to be a proper kick-in-the-teeth bit of horror about the Mexican Day of the Dead."
-Cory Doctorow, Boing Boing
"Nenetl of the Forgotten Spirits is an incredibly original independent book. Don’t let its self-published status fool you; this book is as good as any published by a larger press, and has a ton of heart behind it..."

"...Nenetl of the Forgotten Spirits fits right in with independents like Yi Soon Shin, the works coming out of India that focus on the Hindu Gods, and some of the more interesting comic books coming out of Denmark and Finland. There is a large tradition to uphold here, and Nenetl of the Forgotten Spirits does so brilliantly."
