The mystery behind a ruined hacienda in southern Mexico attracts a cynical cable show of paranormal "experts". All truly is not what is seems here, but not for reasons the reader might expect.
Comics Composition Competition 2013
(Winner, First Place)
"Our decision to award “Hacienda” First Place recognizes Dave Ortega’s creation of an ambitious, multi-layered narrative that cuts through history, class, status and power in a deftly constructed story which takes the reader back and forth in time to reveal the conceit and illusion undergirding dominant paradigms in a way that only comics can. This complex concoction of culture and character made for a winning combination."
