An original Spanish graphic novel, now in English. From the mind of the terror master El Torres comes a terrifying story that brings readers into the artist’s world of madness and dark paintings, populated by recognizable figures like Manuel Godoy and the Duchess of Alba, in cobweb-shrouded palaces with beautiful grotesques living in the shadows. This unique story melds the artist’s unique style and vision with the story of a man plagued by unreality, dreadful images of witchcraft and pure evil. He knows that he must not fall into what lurks beyond the dream of reason.

An original graphic novel inspired by Goya’s life, in particular focusing on his final years, as he struggles with assorted physical ailments that threaten to take his mind, as well. Recovering from a serious illness in Cadiz, Spain, which has left him deaf, Goya suffers from terrible headaches, high fevers, and hallucinations, beset by visions of death that will become all too real with the advent of the Spanish War of Independence. Still, the monsters in his delusions are not real—but his friend Asensio Julia is, and he belongs to another world.

Francisco de Goya is considered one of the most important Spanish painters of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, last of the Greats and first of the modernists. But his sumptuous images stemmed from a mind in torment, especially later in his life.

Introduction by Rafael Marin (The Fantastic Four Vol 3, and The Inhumans).
