A doctor in the midst of the Spanish Civil War 

“I have enjoyed, with the utmost pleasure and with growing admiration, reading this graphic novel inspired by the fascinating memoirs of Doctor Pablo Uriel Díez. The Spanish Civil War, whose consequences we are unfortunately still suffering —among them it is disgraceful that more than 100,000 victims of Francoism still lie in common graves and ditches—, has given way to an immense bibliography that does not cease to grow. This comic manages to tell, with words and images combined to great effect, the trials of a young doctor, a Republican sympathizer, who is forced to coexist with, at the very start of his career, the ups and downs of the merciless battle. The protagonist is unforgettable. He is no simple caricature in black and white, nor does he wish others to be so, nor does he maintain illusions about the human condition. My congratulations to Sento Llobell, and to those family members of the doctor, who have made this feat possible. Because it is indeed a feat, and among the great ones.”
