This comic intersperses the stories of my grandmother's escape from Mexico during the Revolution of 1910-1920 with those from 'official' history. Featured players include the Revolution's "Big Four": Pancho Villa, Emiliano Zapata, Alvaro Obregon and Venustiano Carranza; as well as my great-grandmother Evarista and her daughters Consuelo (my grandmother) and Beatriz. I am currently working on this comic into a graphic novel to expand on my grandmother's life.
