This graphic novel uses the techniques he has taught. The story happens in the winter of 1441 A.D. in Spain. A father and his son are on a mission to find some people who pissed off the lady.
The tale unfolds in a cinematic and dramatic manner. Art is amazing. It's in black and white but with the masterful composition, it really gets you close to the action. Characters are carefully placed, directed, and every panel is like a study of tonal value. This book is a good example how powerful composition can be used for storytelling.
At the end of the book are some sketches and his thoughts on the story.
Highly recommended. And definitely check out Framed Ink if you haven't.
The book is available in paperback and hardcover.

This book accidentally makes an excellent argument for collaboration between good authors and skilled draftsmen. In this case the former was absent and the latter excellently represented.
The artwork is great. It's loose, sketchy and full of energy. The layouts, form language, etc. are all compelling. Each of the characters is well developed in terms of silhouette and graphical detail, making the important figures identities stand apart from each other and hint at who they are, sometimes without any other supportive element to demonstrate their character... even as I write this I can clearly picture many of the unique faces and the characteristic body language of the central figures; well worth studying if you're into graphical storytelling as anything more than purely a consumer.
The story is, however, a let down... as in there sort of isn't one. You get a snap shot of a short period in the lives of a father and son, a page or two of history and epilogue, a tiny glimpse at the events surrounding these characters, and a few undeveloped extras. Throw in a couple of fights, tack on poorly written dialog and you round out forgettable and uninteresting tale. It may leave you briefly curious as to what happens with all of these characters, or why they're doing what they do, but too much so, since almost nothing happens to them, and they remain tremendously underdeveloped during the course of the story.
So buy it for the pictures if you dig the style, and if you're studying composition or [early stage] visual character development then study what's been done here as that's what shines about this book.
I bought this book so I can learn how to make comic/graphic novel as good as he does, together with "Framed ink" you get yourself a really good education on composition for story telling.
The storyline itself in this novel is OK, nothing that exciting but non the less executed superbly, that is why I give it 5 stars.
I'd seen Mr. Marcos's work in the past, and knew him as a source of superior material. But everything I'd been exposed to was always client work, as Mr. Marcos is a professional illustrator and story board artist for Dreamworks. But this project is clearly personal. Which is refreshing because his art speaks for itself, but here you have that benefiting a story that that is also quite dramatic. I'd say the book is worth owning just for a chance to have some of Marcos' drawing in your library; the story is interesting as well.
Thanks for your time, please buy this book.
