A Look Inside the Making of José and the Pirate Captain Toledano!
We’re fast approaching the May 1st release of my graphic novel José and the Pirate Captain Toledano!
Set in the shadows of the Spanish Inquisition, José and the Pirate Captain Toledano is the coming-of-age story of José Alfaro, a young refugee who forms a powerful bond with the mysterious Pirate Captain Toledano. It’s also a dynamic pirate adventure on the high seas, with hand-to-hand combat and ship-to-ship action, and the powerful story of a dark time in history when people took different paths to survive.
