True Story, Swear to God’s Tom Beland is back with a new book, Chicacabra, to debut from IDW this June. It’s billed as a humourous series of graphic novels, about a Latina girl who turns into a monster — and yes the title is a play on the legendary creature the Chupacabra.

In Chicacabra, you would think being a young woman in high school would come with more than enough drama, but for Isabel Sanchez that is a mere drop in the bucket of her life. On the outside, Isabel looks and acts like your average Puerto Rican girl but after a family tragedy and then a mysterious incident she finds herself with a monster capable of great brutality living inside her. But is it her friend or foe?
Isabel will have to learn to life with a killing machine inside her and navigate high school in this first in a series of planned Chicacabra graphic novels. And heads will roll, to say the least!
“I think people will relate to Isabel. I think we all have a chupacabra in us in some way. There’s fear, doubt, many things that you hold deep inside of yourself,” said Tom Beland, “This is about two souls working together in a relationship that could be damaging as well as healing. I love making it. To a degree it was as emotional as making TSSTG.”

 The series will debute with a special edition for the Puerto Rico Comic-Con, May 24-25 at the Puerto Rico Convention Center.
