Banana Trap

This comic is inspired by Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s 1961 novella No One Writes To The Colonel. It reveals a period of history of banana colonization in Columbia.  ‘Banana fever’ is a symbol throughout the novel to imply the historical tragedy behind the novel which is a massacre of banana workers. I make this comic into a concertina-style for the readers to more easily follow the flow of the narrative.
