CODEX BLACK (BOOK ONE): A FIRE AMONG CLOUDS tell the story of Donají a fearless Zapotec girl who, even though she’s only fifteen, is heralded as a hero by her village. Donají sets out on an adventure–accompanied by the god that lives inside of her poncho–to find her missing father. Along the way, she meets a 17-year-old winged Mexica warrior named Itzcacalotl, and over time their temporary partnership blooms into an incredible friendship. The search brings the young pair closer to danger and deeper into mystery than either could have predicted. What exactly was Donají’s father involved with? And how did a simple search for a missing relative lead Donají and Itzcacalotl into a fight with a terrifying bat monster to defend an entire village?
Written by Camilo Moncada Lozanzo, with colors by Angel DeSantiago, and based on the cult-following webcomic by the same name, book one of Codex Black is equal parts adventure, humor, and heart. Meticulously researched by Moncada, the graphic novel also includes background materials that contextualize everything within the narrative. With extra information on the history, the supernatural, and a pronunciation guide, Codex Black presents an amazing look at Mesoamerican mythology and culture.
