Comic > Other Comics Work: It Is Okay, with Camilo Gonzalez

I wrote It Is Okay after I began sequestering with my partner Camilo, late in 2020. He was born in Havana, and his family left in the early years of the revolution. Camilo has vivid memories of his life on the island. A few years after his family settled in Chicago, he became part of several punk bands, and lived vivid stories of a different sort. The comic was my way of stringing some of these stories together, and also a way to figure out more about a person I love.

Special thanks to fellow Agitator Gallery member Alonso Galué for translating the text into contemporary Cuban Spanish.
