When I first came across the work of Rafael Grampá in last year’s 5 – the Eisner-winning anthology, with Gabriel Bá, Becky Cloonan, Vasilis Lolos and Fábio Moon — I was instantly intrigued. Then when I saw AdHouse Books’ announcement of Grampá’s Mesmo Delivery, I was excited. And now that I see the preview, I’m completely blown away. It’s gorgeous.
The 56-page comic, about an ex-boxer who must deliver a tractor-trailer of goods without looking at the cargo, is due in November.
