Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Evil corporate giant Blackwell Industries’ research experiments are causing a famine at the Mexico-Arizona border. More and more, “coyote” Diego Busqueda has been called on to lead border crossers through the unforgiving stretch of desert called Devil’s Highway and into the American dream. While he’s away, the local crime kingpin sets his sights on Diego’s family. Things come to a head, and the family has to flee, leaving Diego to lead them through the Devil’s Highway, where they come face-to-face with the ancient and hungry evil that Blackwell has woken. While the plot progression of this graphic novel is straightforward enough, the juxtaposition of such disparate elements as werewolves, illegal immigration, and corporate greed infuses this gritty tale with thick social commentary. Lapinski’s dynamic and stylized art features refined line work, sharp contrast, and a duotone palette that illustrates not only the sweltering heat but also the rising panic in the story. An intriguing look at a high-profile issue. A Spanish-language edition (9781936393121) is also available. --Tina Coleman

Format: Hardcover
I've read a lot of werewolf comics in the years that I've been running Werewolf-News.com, and some of them have been quite good, but Feeding Ground stands above them all as my absolute favourite. It's that simple. It succeeds on every level: as a compelling story eerily grounded in reality, as an assemblage of astounding artwork that simmers with heat and tension, as a serious commentary on a life-and-death social issue and as a self-contained objet d'art crafted by three friends who wanted to make something great, and then did. Get it and you'll see what I mean.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Feeding Ground uniquely captures the spirit of "The American Dream". Historically, the crossings to this land have been fraught with both fear and unfairness. The werewolves of Feeding Ground serve as metaphors, and political reminders, of the "unwelcome mat" that has greeted countless groups of immigrants, who sniffed freedom, only to be turned away from our shores. A must read for those who still believe in the Emma Lazarus inscription at the base of Lady Liberty.
