MA – Lowriders to the Center of the Earth Signing

0000000-Lowriders to the Center of the Earth

Raul the Third appears at Hub Comics on Saturday July 23, 2016 from noon till 2:00 PM to sign Lowriders to the Center of the Earth!

The lovable trio from the acclaimed Lowriders in Space are back: Lupe Impala, Elirio Malaria, and El Chavo Octopus are living their dream at last. They’re the proud owners of their very own garage. But when their beloved cat Genie goes missing, they need to do everything they can to find him. Little do they know the trail will lead them to the realm of Mictlantecuhtli, the Aztec god of the Underworld, who is keeping Genie prisoner. With cool Spanish phrases on every page, a glossary of terms, and an action-packed plot that sneaks in science as well as Aztec lore, Lowriders to the Center of the Earth is a linguistic and visual delight. !Qué suave!

Raúl the Third teaches classes on drawing and comics for kids at the Museum of Fine Arts and the Institute of Contemporary Art. He lives in Boston, Massachusetts.
