About the Author
Edgar Camacho is a comics writer/artist who was born in 1989 in Metepec, Mexico. After winning various comic and illustration awards in his homeland (including the 2014 SecuenciArte prize for Summon's Alley and Mexico's first National Young Graphic Novel Award for Onion Skin), he has also built a devoted fanbase with the webcomic series Tiras sin Sentido ("Senseless Strips").
"A visual feast of art so energetic that it constantly breaks through and beyond the panel borders, in a brilliant, saturated palette and stylized, angular figures... quite the toothsome thrill ride." -- Booklist

"Onion Skin earned the first National Young Graphic Novel Award for its ample narrative strengths, its technical achievement, the deft eloquence of its color, and the rigor of its drawing, making Edgar Camacho one of the most promising figures in Mexican comics." -- Jorge Solís Arenazas, Fondo Editorial Tierra Adentro

"A stimulating jolt! Despite its breezy visual style, the book wrangles a great narrative whose richness comes from its elliptical storytelling... Onion Skin represents a new generation forging a new concept for the graphic novel, where stories can arise from everyday life and not pretend to imitate North American or Japanese styles." -- El Ojo de Uk
