So Far From God
pen & ink, watercolor, digital

Drawn for Intruder Comix Newspaper issues 16 and 17, So Far From God was a 2-part story about the United States’ particular mania about immigration, especially from Mexico and it’s roots in slavery, xenophobia and labor exploitation.
It comprised episoded 4 and 5 of my Empire of Ashes series.
The title is taken from the common Mexican saying “Poor Mexico, so far from God, so close to the United States.”
