In Short: Set in a futuristic post-apocalyptic world, the story follows Adelita, a character based on the archetype of the female soldier in the Mexican Revolution, and is heavily influenced by Mexican folklore, with elements and visuals that feel like your favorite 80s action and martial art movies.
What's It About: After centuries of war and destruction to the environment, empires have risen and fallen. Humanity is on the brink of extinction after a disease turned many of its survivors into mindless, rotten beings, more machine than human. What few humans remain are scattered along the wastelands, struggling to survive under the constant menace of the vicious gangs commanded by Mechanicus and Doña Masacres. Set in the year 3017, in post-apocalyptic Mexico, this original comic tells the story of Adelita and her dog, Xolotl, as they try to save a world ravaged by war, famine, and disease, all while trying to discover Adelita’s true identity.
