This story, presenting the oneiric passages of two kids growing up on the South Side, is a fiction piece excerpted from Carlos Matallana’s ongoing comic book project Manual of Violence, a guide on youth violence made in conversation with teens for teachers. This fall, Matallana will release the full fiction segment, which is a short interlude in the middle of Manual of Violence’s four nonfiction chapters, and plans to release the full book in February 2018.
