Tonta by Jaime Hernandez

Fantagraphics Books

Regular price $ 19.99

Hot off the heels of Jaime Hernandez’s last graphic novel masterpiece, Is This How You See Me?, comes Tonta, a stand-alone graphic novel that shines a light on the family tree of one of Hernandez’s most memorable characters of recent memory, the teenaged Tonta.

Summer's here, and all Tonta wants to do is go swimming, hop on her skateboard, get drunk, and listen to her favorite punk band, Ooot. But her idyllic weekend is disrupted by a botched burglary that forces her to confront her dysfunctional family history. Through it all, from Tonta's teenaged angst to her half sister Vivian's drama to the thrills and chaos of an underground lucha libre match, Tonta showcases Hernandez's brilliant characterization, storytelling, and mastery of the form.
