I honestly have not learned so much about another country's culture in one glance before. Ruins did that to me. ⁣

Peter Kuper's illustration was very stylized, but also unabashedly blunt. It implodes the truth of the scene better than just a couple of pretty pictures can. ⁣

Equipped with depth and understanding with the politics and history of Mexico, he was definitely able to bring a sense of realism to the events that follow in his story. ⁣

I also liked how he used the migration of a monarch butterfly from Canada to Mexico to lead the narration of 2 individuals that seem quite unlikeable at first, but you'd gradually grow to sympathize with as the plot unfolds. Quite the symbolism for one's journey to self-actualization.⁣

Definitely a good read. Highly recommended for those like year to explore other areas through the lens of another individual.
