Érase una vez la Volátil

by Agustina Guerrero

In the latest (tragi)comic book by the Argentina-born, Spain-based artist Agustina Guerrero, her alter ego Volátil quits a “toxic relationship” and moves to Barcelona where she shares an apartment with a gay friend. This, I understand, is a prequel to the other books about Volátil (none of which I’ve read so far). There is a lot of humour but also sadness and even despair. And nudity — whether it is a symbol of freedom or her favourite state of being, or, hopefully, both.
